One Direction on their top moments of 2012: 'We're incredibly humbled'

Most Popular

It seems fair to say that One Direction have had a pretty incredible year and that's just their ever expanding quiffs talking. But as well as being fitter than ever, the lads have been looking back at the year and have come up with some of their favourite moments.

We have to say we are slightly scandalised that Niall being attacked by a squirrel didn't make the cut, but take a look and see if you agree.

"It is so hard to put into words what 2012 has meant to us," Zayn told Billboard, probably getting a bit teary in the eye department.

"Last year was an amazing year for us, but when our debut album went to No.1 over here we were blown away by that.

"We didn't expect any of the support to the kind of level we were getting out there in the UK. And then we come out eight months later with our second album over here and it goes to No. 1 again.

"Things like that don't happen and we know that. We're incredibly humbled by that."

As well as having their position as the crotchy object of about a gazillion Directioners' affections to feel particularly thankful for, the lads still aren't over some of the adventures they've had this year.

"For me the Olympics literally can't be topped," Harry told the mag. "Just the feeling of being in that room, all our families were there. The whole feeling was just unbelievable."

It's the big gigs that get Liam all pepped up like a kid on cake too, as he explained: "For me it would be popping out the floor of that big stage at Madison Square Garden the other night. I think that would be my moment for this year."

"This week's been crazy, crazy busy but so much fun. We were all nervous that we were gonna be rehearsed in time [to play Madison Square Garden], then when we were finally onstage we got to relax," Louis said.

We definitely appreciate this list, but there are a few momentous occasions that we feel should have at least made the top 5.

Namely Niall being attacked by a killer squirrel, a small woodland creature nesting on Zayn's head for 4 months and Liam's continual affection for touching his Paynis.

Are there any special 1D moments you think should make their 2012 highlights?
