Zayn Malik "Zain Malik" or Zain Javadd Malik (born January 12, 1993) is a British singer and member of the boy band One Direction. Zayn Malik (Zain often spelled Zayn) and his bandmates were contestants on the fall 2010 season of 'X Factor.
Born in East Bowling, Bradford on January 12, 1993 and he's mixed race - half English and half Pakistani. Zayn Malik is a member of One Direction. The boy band had a solid run on X Factor in the Fall of 2010. One Direction plans to stick together as a band and hopes to record an album in 2011.
He sang on the show X Factor alongside four other members in his group, One Direction. They were formed in bootcamp where the lads were rejected as solo singers. Simon took them further, as he thought they were too good to let go and saw potential in them.
Zain's nerves did get the better of him at the start when they had to battle out their dance moves during bootcamp. However Simon did encourage him to participate and Zain gave it his all.
