Hotseat: X Factor - One Direction

X Factor finalists One Direction

Loads of you got in touch with questions for X Factor finalists One Direction.

The boys are the only act Simon Cowell has left in the competition - but can they lift the X Factor crown?

While we wait for the final, check out what Liam, Niall, Harry, Louis and Zane had to say to YOUR questions...

I'm making a band, do you have any tips? Emily, 11, Yorkshire

Louis: We've only been together for a short time, but we've all bonded really well and are like best friends now. I think it's really important to work hard and to share the same dreams.

What is it like having to perform on the stage every week? Caitlin, 10, Scotland

Harry: It's amazing! At first it was really scary, but now we're getting used to it.

You get such a massive buzz from being there singing in front of the judges and the audience. Now we can't wait to go on the X Factor tour to meet more of our fans.

Do you like all of the fame you get and why? Katie, 13, Bournemouth

Liam: It's very strange going from being totally unknown to being on the front of magazines and winning polls and thing like that.

The best thing about it all is that we get to meet all the fans who have been amazing to us.

Is it weird people screaming at you in the street? Emily, 13, Cornwall

Niall: It's hard for us to even walk down the streets at the moment. It's quite funny really when people give you a second look and realise who you are. People have always been really nice to us and given us great comments.
