1D have been all over Australia and New Zealand for the past month for their Take Me Home tour, but they took time out of their hectic schedule for The X-Factor. And clearly the Aussie viewers were beyond stoked about it because they brought in two millions viewers, making it the number one Sunday show. Yeah, no big deal or anything.

And can we just talk about how ah-mazing “Story of My Life” is? We really haven’t stopped listening to it since we got to hear it in its entirety last Friday. The sound is definitely a bit more mature and it’s easy to hear how much they’ve guys have grown throughout the years, especially with their vocals.

What do you think about 1D’s new single?
