1D fans couldn't help but get a little emotional when talking about the now-seven-year-long break – many users pointed out that the hiatus has lasted longer than when the band was active.

Of course, One Direction was formed back in 2010 on The X Factor and they released bop after bop for five years, causing global pop domination in the process.

In August, The X Factor released not one but two unseen videos of the 1D boys' original auditions! They revealed that all those years ago Harry Styles was given a second chance and Louis Tomlinson switched his song during the clips of their extended auditions.

Many Twitter users took a moment to praise the singer's successes since they began solo projects, with one fan writing: "Love & be proud of what they've accomplished individually and still miss what 1D had together."

Another tweeted: "I officially declare 2022 as one direction's best year since the hiatus."

Despite the appreciation for the endless singles, albums and films the musicians have been attached to since 2015, many Directioners got in their feels.

"Not one direction announcing their hiatus 7 years ago today.. what have I done with my life other than waiting for them??," one post read.

Another Twitter user wrote: "One Direction has been on hiatus longer than their time as a band."

Fans still hold out hope that Harry, Louis, Liam, Niall and Zayn will reunite in the coming years – only time will tell!
