Lead Pussycat Doll and X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger loves talking about One Direction. She was on The X Factor when the boys made it big and has been pretty vocal about helping them achieve their extreme level of success. In a recent interview with PopJustice, the singer divulged that she had even more to do with the band's success than the boys lead on.

"When I put the group together, Liam was hesitant about it because he wanted to go solo," she explained. 

Whether this is true or not, we are all better because of it. Imagine, a world where One Direction exists without Liam Payne? No thanks.
