Liam Payne was always referred to as the "Dad" in One Direction. Often the more serious, responsible one, Liam made sure he kept his bandmates in line when things got out of control and he never forgets a significant date from the 1D era. This time, it's the anniversary of his second X Factor audition, you know, the one that resulted in him eventually becoming one-fifth of 1D.
