One Direction Most Influential Minors

One Direction Most Influential MinorsOne Direction has officially been named the world's most powerful young stars.

Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson have topped Billboard magazine's 21 under 21 list, which ranks the music’s most influential minors each year, thus managing to outclassed artists such as Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus.

One Direction topped the list thanks to their huge achievements over the last year. Their first album, Up All Night, hit stores in 2011 and was a runaway success in 35 countries.

One Direction is also the first British group to have their first two albums debut at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart.

The group reached fame in the movie world, as well. Their concert film, This is Us, grossed over $62 million so far internationally.

The list’s second position is held by Justin Bieber. The Canadian was number one on the list last year, but slipped down to second place due to negative press focusing on his personal life, rather than his career.
