Yeah, we still can't get over the fact that Zayn's really no longer a part of One Direction either, which is why we've been mooning over their pictures, making plans to get together and watch movies, and listening to all their albums on loop. And if that's not enough, we're also looking back on some of the big moments the boys experienced together. Please pass the tissues.

2010: One Direction is born after each of the guys failed to make the final cut as solo singers. As a band, they perform various songs, including Rihanna's "Only Girl (in the World)" and Coldplay's "Viva la Vida."
