X Factor’s Zayn Malik Performs With One Direction

After news broke that X Factor’s One Direction band member Zayn Malik had to rush home in the middle of the week, we wondered whether the teen would be performing on tonight’s semi final show.

But the teen, who’s grandfather sadly passed away this week, performed on stage with his fellow bandmates.

Singing twice to earn their place in the final, the lads who were put together by the judges in bootcamp, recieived nothing but praise from all the judges.

Whilst boyband extrordinare Louis Walsh called One Direction, “the next big boyband”, Dannii said that the boys had “really stepped it up.”

Mentor Simon also revealed how impressed he was by saying that the boyband “deserve a place in the final.”

Do you agree?
