"Zayn Malik has come so far" - Simon Cowell

One Direction performed on X Factor USA last night and put in a predictably swoonsome performance.

It's believed Simon Cowell was keen to get the boys on the programme to showcase just how far they have come since they were contestants on the UK show two years ago.

In particular, Zayn Malik!

"He was the shy one," explains Simon. "In fact, he nearly didn't make it on one of the boot camp days."

We remember that, Zayn (Zain back then) stormed out of the dance section of boot camp and producers had to go look for him.

"I had to drag him from the back of the auditorium and say, 'You are going to do this,' because he was about to walk out, he was so shy. To see him now, it's a big difference."

And it would seem that we weren't the only one who were having a little drool time over the boys, host Khloe Kardashian seemed equally as smitten.

Khloe said on the show: 'How hot are One Direction?'

Well, we say join the queue! We wonder if Harry is reading this?

Perhaps, he could give Khloe a quick call, she thinks your fit and after all we all know how much you appreciate an older lady. Please, no.
