The X Factor choreographer spills the beans on the boys' dance skills

Brian Friedman rates Harry Styles’ dance moves as the best in the band.

The creative director, 35 – who worked with One Direction on The X Factor in 2010 –  thinks Harry, 18, and Niall Horan, 19, had the most rhythmical ability whilst Zayn Malik, 19, struggled with the routines.

Harry was definitely the best dancer,’ says Brian, ‘he was always good at the choreography.

Niall was good at remembering which direction to move in.’

Unfortunately not all of 1D found it so easy to get into the swing of things.

‘We all saw at Boot Camp that Zayn was about to walk away from the competition because of his dancing,’ Brian tells The Sun, ‘but he’s better than he thought.’
