Ranking The One Direction Guys By Their Solo Star Potential

If you’ve managed to stop sobbing hysterically at yesterday’s news that One Direction is, well, going in separate directions for the time being, let’s talk possibilities. By now we’ve heard that this is not quite a full-blown split for the band (at least not yet) but it is a much-needed hiatus. Let’s face it though: There’s obviously a chance that one of the guys will strike it big as a solo act and get too busy pursuing the Justin Timberlake career path to rejoin 1D….and that’ll be the end of the band as we know it. It’s sad news but someone has to break it: We might be waiting for a reconciliation that will never come.
But for every boy bander who goes on to have a career like JT’s, there are about ten who wind up like the members of the Backstreet Boys whose names I don’t even remember. Time will tell if any of the 1D boys have what it takes to make it big alone – or even if any of them want that – but if we had to guess, here’s how we would stack their odds.
