Romeo of Scotland’s In Demand interviewed Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson of One Direction at In:Demand HQ just before the big race. The British-Irish boy band discussed how the tour is going, the Brit nomination, Liam’s phone number leaking, looking up to Take That, and much more.
On the tour, Harry said:
Really good. Crowds have been amazing. They’re interacting and they get really involved.
On having a Best Single Brit nomination, Harry said:
The fact that we’re even among those names nominated is an absolute honor. I think if we were to win, it would just be incredible. To be named with those names in the first place is unbelievable. I think Ed Sheeran’s gonna do really well. He’s up for four or five things.
Liam on his phone number leaking:
It was people phoning me asking me for chicken curry last night. Then today I had some insurance quotes. Yes (a change in number is on the way). Already in process.
On being the next Take That or Westlife, Louis said:
It could be any of us. It could be JLS, The Wanted. It could be any of us.
On their view of Take That, Harry said:
We went to watch Take That on the stadium tour. We went to Wembley. In terms of the whole boyband thing, they’re definitely someone that we say we look up to. The way they own the crowd and obviously their careers. They span years and have been unbelievable. They’ve been amazing, so if we got anywhere close to their success overall I think it would be incredible. achievement. It’s definitely what we’re aiming for.
