Well, he IS the mastermind behind their global takeover!!!
“Simon Cowell and One Direction are delighted to confirm they have agreed to continue their hugely successful relationship and look forward to many years of continued success.”
After all Simon has been responsible for their success since throwing the cuties together on the UK version of X Factor back in 2010 — he's doing something right!!!
We couldn't even imagine anyone else taking the reigns on their wildly successful international ride!
