Simon Cowell Reveals Which Members of One Direction Are Loyal

Simon Cowell helped launch One Direction into super-stardom, and Liam Payne, Harry Styles,Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Zayn Malik owe a lot to the onetime X Factor judge. The Syco executive is currently judging America’s Got Talent, and recently enlisted Tommo as a guest judge. Turns out, they had an amazing time!

“Louis is great! It was so funny, and so kind of odd, because he had auditioned for me five years ago, and now he’s sitting where I’m sitting, judging other people and doing it really well. I was really happy for him, he loved doing it,” Simon said on a conference call with J-14 and other publications.

Then, when asked about the possibility of more One Direction guest judges, Simon got real. He told us that one of the best parts about the members of 1D is their loyalty — well, at least “most of them.” He name dropped only three out of four of the guys, totally missing Payno!

“You know what, we’re talking to all of [the 1D guys] at the moment. You know what the great thing about these boys are, well not all of them, just most of them, they’re incredibly loyal. And you don’t always expect that. Niall, Harry, Louis are amazing.”

Liam recently went solo with a record label totally separate from Simon’s camp, so it’s understandable if Simon was hurt that Liam decided to launch his solo career with another company. Hopefully, they’ll kiss and make up!

Hunger Pains by Katie Tiedrich

  • “Inevitably, any Fire Emblem food that I cooked would either go to characters that didn’t benefit from the stat boost or, even more likely, to the 2/3 of my army that I wasn’t even planning to bring to the next battle at all.“

Singing headcanons for the Hoshidan retainers?

I picked 4 retainers. Also I am not trained in music at all so hopefully this makes sense and works.


  • Kagero has a somewhat high voice and is breathy when she speaks, which tends to translate even to singing so her songs are airy and feel intimate tho her voice deepens heavily in song
  • She did have training, if only because as a ninja infiltrating might be necessary, and so her airy quality was focused
  • She knows lots of songs, in case of infiltration, but unsurprisingly songs she likes tend to be morbid ballad sorts
  • Modern sorts: she also likes heavy rock and metal and her singing doesn’t always translate well to these genres which saddens her because she’d like to sing along sometimes


  • Her family tried to train her, they really did, because they were nobles and she should know how, but Setsuna just never really got into it when it came to formal training
  • It took a special teacher for Setsuna, with unconventional methods, but Setsuna did find she enjoys music- but her singing is still rather poor because Setsuna has a hard time with range and pitch (in that, she has very few and uses them wildly, like her way of emphasizing)
  • She very much enjoys humming along to songs instead of singing and is actually quite good at remembering songs she likes
  • Modern Sorts: she has real problems singing along to songs because she’s so slow and really, a lot of the songs she keeps are instrumental and whatever Asama has put on


  • He enjoys singing but not for the art of it, and he doesn’t have training under his belt, but as a sort of social party aspect
  • He has a falsetto voice that’s a surprise to those that hear it the first time
  • He enjoys up beat songs that are fun to sing and listen to and, while he’s not horrible to listen to it’s easy to tell he has no training but he’s having so much fun it’s hard not to enjoy it too
  • Modern sorts: he’s the guy that has his songs too loud and is singing along and dancing in his car seat as he does it- and has like three work out playlists,  keeps his mp3 player close all the time, and tries to pull everybody into a song during parties (drunk or not)


  • His singing is perfect and did you really expect anything different? He’s been training since he was little to be impressive with his music
  • Subaki has a deep voice but fair range of it and strong clarity or power that he can be the star of the song, over the music
  • Has a range of songs he knows, for any occasion he might be called upon to sing, and he’s proud of his accomplishments in music but doesn’t enjoy it as much as others
  • Modern sorts: he’s a bit of a music snob, honestly, enjoying “real powerful” singers (his genre’s lean towards soft rocks or blue sorts) or classical instrumental and gets embarrassed if you find his guilty pleasure songs stashed on his mp3
