Harry Edward Styles, born to Anne Cox and Des Styles, was born in Bromsgrove, West Midlands, England on February 1 1994. At the age of 7 Harry's parents divorced and even though he maintained a good relationship with his father, Harry lived with his mother, and sister, Gemma Styles. Harry auditioned for British show, The X-Factor in 2010 singing "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder. He was sent through with all yes's and one no from Louis. He went through multiple rounds, until he was kicked off at Bootcamp. However, Simon Cowell believed that Harry could be brought back, and into a group. Simon then put Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Harry Styles into a group. Harry thought of the name "One Direction", and they first performed "Torn" at the Judges' house in Spain. In the end of the X-Factor, One Direction came in 3rd place. Even though the boys were upset, Simon talked to them saying Sony wanted to sign them for a deal the following morning. One Direction then put out their first album "Up All Night" that hit No. 1 in the charts in Australia, United Kingdom, and the United States. With their hit single, "What Makes You Beautiful", the members of One Direction are leaving girls across the world in tears speechless, at their charming looks, and unique personalities. Girls all over are falling head over heals for this British/Irish boy band, and are becoming severely popular.
