Directioners never say die!

Ever since One Direction first went on hiatus back in March, fans have been holding onto hope that a reunion would soon be coming.

But despite all four members diving into solo projects, their loyal fanbase started a social media frenzy on Tuesday when it appeared that the chart-topping boyband might actually be reuniting!

That's because for some reason or other, the band's website added a "future events" tab to its tour page — and 1D fans went totally ballistic!

The possibility that Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan would be performing sometime in the near future was enough to send fans into hyperdrive, generating the hashtag #ThisIsNotTheEndOfOneDirection.

Unfortunately, the excitement was short lived as the mysterious tab was removed from the website shortly after it appeared. Ugh!

Whether it was an honest mistake, a tease from 1D management, or just Simon Cowell being a troll… it certainly gave fans something to talk about!

Ch-ch-check out the best Twitter reactions to the fake announcement (below)!

Simon Cowell is trying REALLY hard to not be bitter about the guys of One Direction moving on!

Earlier in the week, the America's Got Talent judge dished to reporters his true feelings about his lack of involvement in the 1D members' careers since announcing their hiatus. Awkward!

Simon Cowell Sounds Off On The Fate Of Fifth Harmony!

We've been wondering for a while now if Fifth Harmony is bound for a breakup.

Considering the girl group has cancelled a bunch of dates on their 7/27 Tour, and Lauren Jauregui, Normani Kordei, Dinah-Jane Hansen, and Ally Brooke Hernandez don't seem to get along with Camila Cabello, it's not entirely unlikely.

In fact, plenty of people are speculating that 5H won't even last long enough to release a third album together! Oof!

On Wednesday, The New Music Buzz caught up with Simon Cowell at the finale of America's Got Talent to ask about the fierce females' fates, since the lovely ladies are signed to the music exec's Syco label.

The TV personality said what's going on with the X Factor alums is the "same with any group." Could he be referencing Zayn Malik's desire to ditch One Direction, or the other guys wanting to explore solo ventures?!

The UK native explained:

"We have conversations about what they want to do. We gotta listen to them. It'll be fine."

While that seems reassuring to all the Harmonizers out there, the 56-year-old quickly cringed before adding:

"I hope!"

Hmmm. Doesn't exactly sound so promising after all. Watch Simon visably grimace over the fate of Fifth Harmony (below)!

They should just change the title of this season to Grace's Got Talent!

That's basically how the America's Got Talent judges felt after watching another spectacular performance from singer Grace VanderWaal on Tuesday night.

During night one of the finale, the 12-year-old ukulele player — dubbed "the next Taylor Swift" by Simon Cowell way back in her audition — closed out the show performing her flawless original song Clay!

The judges were all impressed with yet another phenomenal self-penned tune, as Simon, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Mel B all gave Grace a standing ovation.

Howie, who chose the singer as his golden buzzer contestant, even declared the tween had already won the competition, gushing:

"It's not only a song. It speaks to you. You are amazing. Grace has to win. This is my favorite moment of the night."

He's not wrong! She's AH-Mazing!
