IMO.. Zayn is the best singer and Louis by far the worst.

I just love Zayn's voice and I believe it can go places the others cannot, it's a shame we don't hear more of it more often. The guy barely opens his mouth to speak, let alone sing. I'm not really sure why Louis ever even made the group. They really couldn't find any other semi good looking boy who could sing at least a little bit?

I know 1D is much maligned on here but I was just wondering. I said that I thought Zayn had the best voice to a mate and she started rolling around laughing - exclaiming 'Zayn? best voice? don't make me laugh that's Harry EASY love' which is what most say and don't get me wrong, Harry's got a stunning voice on him, maybe it's just taste. I do think Liam isn't as strong vocally as Harry or Zayn which is another thing she argued with.

Liam - the best.
Harry - the most overrated.
Louis - he might be the worst singer, but I like his voice/tune.

Zayn voice is nice but it's very soft. More suited to quiet romantic songs than belting out boyband anthems. Always thought that Liam and Niall were best. Harry not great yet they give him lots of lines.

During X Factor Liam was technically the best but Harry's voice had a bit more energy and life to it. Neither was great but Harry could sound really strong on the right song at least (see Torn). The other just weren't up to much at all.

Zayn's voice was really soft during the X Factor where I think he was really shy - he seems to have developed his voice a little bit. He likes to belt a lot.

And we never saw that side of Niall either.

Louis the worst by far. They sound pretty good live/acoustic now but Louis is still the weakest and they tend to give him easier bits to sing.

2. Zayn
3. Harry
4. Niall
5. Louis

Louis' X Factor audition was simply terrible, and I'm surprised he was put through! Must have been because of his floppy hair

IMO, Harry has got worse since X Factor.

5. Louis

I hope in the future Zayn releases a solo album. Also Niall and Harry are pretty close but I love Niall's voice in More Than This so he goes a bit higher.

They don't need to sing. They are a marketing dream.

I think Liam is the best. I was surprised that he didn't get through to the live shows when he auditioned as a 14-year-old.

Knowing the people you back on here, I really don't think your point is valid.

Liam - Best
Louis - The least.

Anybody's point is valid, that's the beauty of having freedom of speech.

You like 1D? Fine, you're entitled. But some are entitled to dislike them without being told that their opinions mean nothing, it's such a lazy way of defending them.

Zayn and Harry equally. Liam and Niall are best at harmonies. Louis is pretty decent at his solos and during the chorus (it's heard the most sometimes) but he is not as good at the others.

Poor Niall doesn't get to sing much on his own if ever.

I reckon they should give up music and go into porn, with the rule that they can only make videos with each other !
