Just in case Liam Payne had any question about who One Direction was formed around and how the whole thing happened, X Factor UK is making things very, very clear!

In fact, a newly-released YouTube video published over the weekend that pretty much laid bare all of Liam’s claims about the formation of the boy band!

As Perezcious readers will recall, the former 1D member went on Logan Paul‘s podcast early last month to talk about his boy band history and how (he thought) the whole thing came together.

At the time, Liam explained that he had previously auditioned for Simon Cowell when he was just 14 years old, back in 2008.
