Can you believe it's been nine years since Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, and Zayn Malik snuck their way into our hearts? And after everything we have been through with the boys—now grown-up men—we still stick with them until the very end.
While some revelations from the members during their time as a band were quite heartbreaking, we know how much we all treasured their times together and those they spent with their fans. In the end, it was worth the screams and the streams.
To celebrate nine years since they became a group during the seventh season of The X Factor UK, Tommo, Nialler and Payno paid tribute on their time together via Twitter. Check out their tweets below.
Niall Horan. "9 years!!! Can't thank you all enough for all the support over the years. Love you"
Liam Payne. "9 years... Amazing to look back at all the memories and even now you got us trending worldwide after 9 years. You truly are the best fans in the world ❤"
Louis Tomlinson. "So many incredible memories. Days like today are days for reflection, so proud looking back! Thank you for ALWAYS having our backs! Big love to the lads!"
Although it's a long shot, we want to call on Hazza and Zayn to acknowledge the nine-year milestone and say something that will melt our hearts. It's not yet too late, boys!
