One Direction had another BIG year in 2014 - and from landing another TWO BRIT Awards to releasing their fourth album, this is their year in review...
It's safe to say that One Direction are one of the hardest working bands on the planet, and their manic 2014 just proves that! Liam, Niall, Louis, Harry and Zayn continued to dominate the world (and our hearts) this year, whether it was with their hilarious music videos or mega hot selfies - so let's take a look back at their year of madness!
And boy, there were a LOT of them. Most noticeably, 1D cleaned up at the BRITs with their Global Success and Best Video awards, were named the top Global Recording Artist of 2013 by the IFPI AND broke a Guinness World Record after their first three albums all debuted at #1 in the US. PHEW.
The highlight of which HAS to be when the boys performed their latest track 'Night Changes' to actual Prince William and Kate Middleton during The Royal Variety Performance 2014. That's right, they were royally good.
Each of the lads pulled something special out of the bag for us this year, but the stand out style from 2014 just has to be Zayn's Johnny Depp inspired hairdo from the AMAs. THAT STRAND THOUGH.
If it's got One Direction's name on it, WE NEED IT, and their new smellies were no different. First with 'That Moment' and then 'You & I', 2014 was a GOOD year for us, perfume wise.
That's right, 2014 saw 1D embark on their MAMMOTH 'Where We Are' tour, which had them playing some of the biggest stadiums in the world over 5 months. Pretty impressive, no?
There were LOADS. From Niall writing with McFly, to Liam and Louis hitting the studio with Good Charlotte and even Harry working with Kodaline - it was clear this year that the lads were serious about making their latest album their best yet. And it SO WAS.
What with One Direction releasing a concert film for their 'Where We Are' tour AND announcing a brand new On The Road Again tour for 2015, it was ALL going on. We're already counting down the days!
1D joined the likes of Bono, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding to record Bob Geldof's anniversary version of the charity track to help raise money for Ebola. Pretty amazing.
Like all of our Christmases came early, One Direction dropped their fourth album much to the delight of the whole world.
Where they were joined by a VERY special guest... Rolling Stones legend Ronnie Wood! What a way to finish off such an incredible year, eh? Here's to 2015 and more 1D amazing-ness!
