Nicole Scherzinger: Liam Payne Had to Be Talked Into Joining One Direction

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.
