A never-before-seen picture from One Direction’s early days on the X Factor tour has been circulating online and we’re emotional AF!
Although we love their countless solo bops, fans never stop appreciating the 1D boys and all of the memories they gave us!
An unseen photo of the band has now circulated online and has us feeling more nostalgic than ever.
It was taken from the group’s X Factor tour days in 2011 and appears to be snapped by a very lucky person in the audience during one of their tour dates.

The photo has been shared on Twitter, with fans instantly recognising which performance it was from (unsurprisingly).
In case you hadn’t guessed already, the snap was taken during one of the boys’ many performances of Bruno Mars’ song ‘Grenade’, which was an iconic era, to say the least.
Directioners took to social media to get seriously emotional about the throwback, with one person tweeting: “IT WAS WHEN THEY WERE SINGING GRENADE [crying emojis] I LOVE THAT MOMENT.”
“I’d catch a grenade for you,” shared another.
“My babies [crying emojis],” penned another emotional fan.
The good old days!
