Like it or not these kids have gone global I was wondering who you think is most likely to have the best solo career?

Taking into consideration that sometimes its not the most talented one that's guaranteed the best chances of a solo career Robbie Williams for Take That (even though Gary has a better writing record) and Cheryl Cole who in my humble opinion is beyond tone deaf - yet Nadine can't get a sniff near a top 5 single in the chart as a soloist!

Who do you think management is most likely to back - ala Cole?

I'm going for Harry because he already has the most column inches as the ladies man ; he's an alright singer (no were near as awful as Louis); is more attractive than Niall and Liam and less moody and reserved than Zayn - and has the most celebrity friends (Zayn and Niall are close to Justin Beiber but not that close)...

what do you guys think?

Likely Harry

He is the Robbie of One Direction in terms of who is popular, but the male Cheryl Cole of 1D in terms of his regular appearances in the tabloids.

Zayn. Because he's the fittest and obviously now the lead singer.


Louis will be lucky to be on I'm A Celebrity. Yuck.

Zayn has the best voice, but that doesn't amount to a can of beans these days, Harry is losing his cuteness and if he shaved his hair off he'd look uninteresting.

It will be Harry but I think Liam could be successful enough on a lower scale. The others haven't got a chance though. Niall will be the forgotten one, Zayn will be the reality show whore and Louis will probably end up as an actor.

None of them.

They are completely devoid of any form of talent.

I have to agree there is no definitive member that Stands out in the way say Justin Timberlake did let alone have the talent needed to deliver a solo career. When they grow up and move away from their teen sound you have to consider who will stick with them in the way wham! fans did with George Michael or N*sync fans did with Justin.

I really don't know. You would presume Harry because of the media attention on him but it could be like a Spice Girls situation, you think Geri is going to be the most famous and 15 years later its Victoria.
Who knows, it could be Louis or Niall. I personally think Zayn probably had the most star quality if I had to choose.

I'm going to say something slightly controversial here...(feel free to call me out on it) if Zayn wasn't Asian Muslim he'd be the one standing out the most and the one were talking about as a promising soloist - ... he's by far and away the looker and in my humble opinion the strongest vocalist - yet during the X factor days he was relegated to singing rifts and high note echos - since then he's improved the most and he's the one I feel takes most of the challenging verses - the high and long notes - Zayn was an unknown entity to the management he was exotic and talented but they weren't quite sure what kind of reception he'd bit of a gamble because there has NEVER been a Muslim member of a boy-band he'd get you only have to read some of the hate filled drivel aimed @ this kid on twitter and by certain sections of the American Tea Party brigade to know what I mean - maybe I'm completely wrong maybe he lacks the stage presence or something - or he craves his privacy the most ...I don't know

I'm talking about Islamophobia there's no Muslim in any boy band! He was accused of pimping Islam by a right wing journalist cause he mentioned eid festival on twitter

Yes Right Wing for the most part the genral populace will go unbothered by either his coilour or religion and it's also important to note the US is far more conservative than here.

Harry's the only one with enough charisma to make it solo, if he had the right material behind him.

Well, everybody thought that Gary would be the star and not Robbie so it is hard to guess. Vocally speaking, Zayn and Liam should succeed (I think Harry is overrated). However, it is very tough and only Robbie, Justin and I suppose Ronan Keating managed to have a successful solo career after the boyband years.

But Zayn isn't an Asian Muslim. He's mixed race, he's half asian as his mum is white. And there are many mixed race singers in the charts, all of who have had success in the past and present so that doesn't really make sense!

Hopefully none of them... I agree with Lenny Henry when he said that Freddie Mercury has more charisma dead then one direction will ever have alive...

Ouch.

Geri hasn't done too badly! Come on! She's still a UN Goodwill Ambassador, she sold 12 million solo records, four consecutive number one singles is the UK, She sang Happy Birthday to Prince Charles, Performed at the Brit Awards on a giant vagina, had an American TV Show on ABC (that was axed after a few episodes).... Childrens books...

Geri will not be pleased about what you have said.
I hope you know what you have done.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Catch Geri perform for the first time on a West End stage in Singin' In The Rain for Children In Need's POP Goes The Musical. Will she fall flat on her face, will she bring the roof down? Watch CiN, November 16th on BBC One to find out!


Meanwhile, in Los Angeles...

Zayn probably - he would come out with the most unique songs. The rest would come out with garbage.
