Once upon a time a 16-year-old boy stood on a stage and was told he wouldn’t amount to much. He didn’t have the “confidence” or the “experience” to make it as a solo artist.
He could sing and he was cute but don’t get your hopes up, kid. You don’t have the X factor.
The year was 2010, the show was indeed The X Factor and the kid was Harry Styles. And oh, how those judges must be eating their words.
