It’s a head-to-head battle between the popular group, One Direction, and their former band mate, Zayn Malik, in the Teen Choice Awards 2015.
Zayn left the group in March 2015 after tasting fame and success with One Direction for several years.
One Direction was formed when the good-looking, talented boys joined UK’s The X Factor in 2010. Malik was eliminated, but X Factor judges, Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger, paired him up with other contestants, namely, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson. They remained part of the show as Cowell’s last act and the group was called, One Direction. They did not win first place in the X Factor competition, but One Direction immediately caught the hearts of young people all over the world and have gone on to sell multiple millions of records globally.
But, even without Malik, One Direction continues to pursue their dream and bring entertainment to many parts of the world through their music, as one of the world’s most successful touring bands.
And this time, the road is leading toward Teen Choice Awards 2015, where Zayn Malik is another nominee for the Fashion Choice Male Hottie category.
Many are asking if Zayn will have any luck over his former band mates, given their high profile split and rumors about his behavior. But, there are other stars to also consider, like Justin Bieber and Ryan Guzman, who are nominated in the same category and the award will be hotly contested right across this field.
Justin Bieber, who was discovered through his YouTube videos in 2007, is a very tough contender for the prize. With Canadian charm and his huge fan base, both online and offline, he may be able to push the members of One Direction and Zayn Malik out of contention.
