Will One Direction Ever Reunite? Simon Cowell Weighs In!

Will One Direction Ever Reunite? Simon Cowell Weighs In!

If you are holding out hope for One Direction‘s “hiatus” to be short, you may be waiting a while.

Simon Cowell recently opened up about the launching of their solo careers and whether the guys – Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson – would ever get back together.

“I don’t know is the answer,” Simon told The Sun. “I think there would be such an appetite amongst the fans for a reunion, whether it was a tour or a record.”

“They are going to have successful solo careers – that is assured as much as it can be,” he continued. “They have got to make great records but I reckon they will…I wouldn’t rule anything out. With these guys, I left the decisions up to them. They were all out of contract when it ended so apart from Zayn Malik who was under an existing option no one else was under contract.”

Simon added, “My point is that I have always left the decisions up to them and they have made pretty good decisions and so I trust them.”

Simon Cowell Says Liam Payne Signing With Another Label is 'Annoying'

Simon Cowell Says Liam Payne Signing With Another Label is 'Annoying'

It sounds like Simon Cowell wasn’t too happy to hear about Liam Payne solo record deal with Capitol Records.

The 56-year-old music exec told The Sun, “It is a bit annoying if I am honest with you—mainly because it is another label who has now got your artist who you worked with for so many years. But that is the music business, unfortunately. I don’t think anyone else from the band will do that.”

“We had spoken a lot—him and I—about what he wanted to do next,” Simon added. “But I guess he read about Harry [Styles]‘s deal and thought we weren’t interested. My impression was that he wasn’t in any hurry to make a record because he discussed this last year. He was more into songwriting…Of course there is a part of you that goes, ‘Maybe we should have had the conversation.’ That maybe is my fault but it has happened now.”

As for Harry staying with Sony, Simon said, “We spoke about this a long time ago and certain artists do prefer to be signed to an American label and he spends a lot of time over here. This was something we were very instrumental in and it was the result we all wanted so it was great.”
