The 'What Makes You Beautiful' singers say it felt "amazing" to be back on The X Factor stage.

One Direction returned to The X Factor last night (13th November) to perform their new single on the show that launched their careers.

The boy band took to the stage for a performance of second single 'Gotta Be You' and told host Dermot O'Leary afterward it had felt like coming home.

"This studio is seriously like home for us and it felt amazing to be back today," Harry Styles said following the band's performance.

When Dermot asked the boys who they were tipping for an The X Factor win this year they all named girl band Little Mix as their favourite act.

One Direction finished third on the 2010 series of The X Factor and debut single 'What Makes You Beautiful' reached number one on the UK Singles Chart this September.

The band are due to perform on this year's Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball day two line-up alongside acts including Jessie J, JLS and The Saturdays.

One Direction's 'Gotta Be You' was released yesterday (13th November) and they will release debut album 'Up All Night' on 18th November.
