One Direction on 'X Factor'
The boy band will perform on Thursday's results show.
The boys are back in town!

On Thursday, the members of One Direction were spotted at the CBS studios in Los Angeles, where they were preparing for a performance on the X Factor results show.

On Wednesday night’s episode, new group Emblem3 paid homage to their favorite group by performing a medley of Katy Perry‘s“California Girls” and The Temptations’ “My Girl” over the beat of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”

The British heartthrobs are set to reunite with their one-time mentor, Simon Cowell, who coached them during their successful stint on the X Factor UK in 2010.

While the boys have been ladies’ magnets since first appearing on the pop music scene, singer Harry Styles has made sure to hold out for the right leading lady.

“I want someone who is driven,” he recently told Cosmopolitan, adding that “someone’s good at something they love doing” is a plus.

Despite admitting he’s too flirty — and really, which 18-year-old boy isn’t? — Styles doesn’t want to be seen as the womanizer the media makes him out to be.

“The way it’s portrayed is that I only see women in a sexual way,” he said. “But I grew up with just my m0m and sister, so I respect women a lot.”

Will you tune into watch tonight’s episode of X Factor?
