Did the members of One Direction take singing lessons before they tried out for X Factor?

Specifically Niall but I want to know about all of them :)

Yup. You can hear the Auto Tune.

how would you know? have you gone to any of their concerts before? huh? yeah, thought so..
Report as
I have gone to their concert. They really don't need auto tune as good as they are, but they probably use just a little of it when they need it

Don't have to go to there concerts. There's this magical thing called the internet now. I can watch them live on YouTube anytime I want. And I can do a side-by-side comparison of a song off the album and a song live. You. Can. Hear. The. Auto. Tune.

This convo about 1D using auto tune is prob done now but whatever I'm saying this now so anyways they do naturally sing amazingly (I they didn't they wouldn't get in the finals of the X Factor :P) but I'm sure pretty much EVERY artist/band uses at least a tiny but if auto tune even if they do have as amazing voices as 1D so ya they prob use a at least a tiny bit even though they are really good at singing

are you saying they sounded bad? not cool, especially about my man Niall! I am kidding, i am pretty sure they would have, they must have been pretty confident bout themselves to audition on the x factor

No I'm not saying they sound bad at all! I love them! I was just wondering because I was going to take singing lessons but I told my dad I was good without them because one direction got famous without any singing lessons

lol, if yo =u are certain you are as good as them, then go ahead without lessons
Report as
I know I'm not nearly as good as they are but I guess I could say I'm better than average

Well, I think go for a bit of lessons, to be on the safe side, even if others think you are good. That way, you can get even better!

They tried out for the show as solo artists. They were put together into a group to try out for the group competition only after it became apparent that none of them could sing well enough to make it further in the solo competition.
