A New Direction

Life brings Niall to a turn in his life while on their tour in the United States. Will this person change his life, and take him in a new direction? Or will he just be a phase?


3. Rising Star

Needless to say I made it past the judges' homes and into the final 12, as a solo act, which surprised me. But apparently they thought I was good enough to be a solo act.

@Louis_Tomlinson: #YouDidItJosh I hope you like it in the final 12

I opened my twitter and saw that. Lou really does like me, but then again, this might be a bit of a stunt to get me even further. All I really want is for them to vote for me because they like me, not because of Louis or any of the other boys.

A text message lit up my phone, but it was set on vibrate so no music played. I picked it up to see who it was, and not surprising at all, it was the boy who called dibs.

The final 12, and still going solo. You will do great, and no matter what, don't let them get to you, we saw your audition performance, and you were amazing. You will make it to the final 2 for sure. Xx

I smiled in disbelief that they would actually go online and watch me audition, using their song. I blushed a little too. I slipped my phone in my pocket and headed off to the dressingroom. It was Wednesday, and it was time to shine. Although I am not sure how well I will do infront of a live studio audience of thousands of people. Did I forget to mention that I have major stage fright issues? Well I do, and tonight might be me last night here.

We got to choose our songs, which was different from the judges' homes, because there they choose a song that would challenge us and make us better. I decided to dedicate my first performance to the five boys who got me to where I am. So that song I chose was This Song Saved My Life, and I was surprisingly ready to sing on stage.



After my performance the judges all complimented me, but I think Simon's was the nicest. You did wonderful, the best I've heard all night. I blushed on live  television because of Simon. After the show I got two texts one from Lou and the other from the one crushing on me. I still can't get use to that, I mean seriously how could someone so perfect like someone so ordinary, like me?

You sounded like an angle, you have a simply beautiful voice. ~?

You were AMAZING, almost as good as me and the boys if I do say so myself ~Lou

Lou it's driving me insane that I don't know who he is!!! ~Josh

Well you will just have to wait, what did he say this time? ~Lou

He said I have a voice like an angle, I am blushing so bad! ~Josh

Well he is a sweetheart, I wouldn't put it past him. He likes you a lot and maybe I can convince him to tell you how he feels, and ask you out ;) ~Lou

Don't you get my hopes up... Trust me, the last time I got my hopes up my heart got crushed, I don't think I could ever go through that again... ~Josh

Oh Josh, I can't see how anyone would be heartless enough to crush your's. I know he won't, he couldn't if he tried. I think he's head over heels. ~Lou

Like that could ever happen, I'm a nobody, and he's a popstar. I can't even compare to that. ~Josh

Josh don't say that, if Simon said what he said tonight you are headed straight for the finals ~Lou

Louis you don't know what I've been through, and you don't want to know either... ~Josh

Josh look, we have all been in bad situations, but this is not a bad situation, he likes you a lot, end of story. Oh, gotta go, time for rehearsal, and don't fret we'll see you soon and maybe he'll ask you out :) ~Lou


Sure enough Louis was right, I moved on. As the contestants fell, I stayed in. The texts kept coming too and each one made me feel better about myself. I guess those texts were the reason why I kept doing my best. I mean if it wasn't for him I probably wouldn't have made it this far. One week away from the Season Finale, in the final three.

We will see you and preform ourselves in a week. You will also get to find out who I am. See you then ~?

A whole week? I don't think I can take much more of this, he may be driving me mad, but it is mad with love. He has got me truly madly crazy deeply in love, I can't stand the mystery behind him. Thats it, for my final performance I will sing "Truly Madly Deeply"

I nearly sang myself to sleep every night, trying to get every note perfect. I didn't want to let them down. I hardly did much of anything else so I could do my best. The changing room crew found the perfect outfit, it was like Niall's from their music video of 'One Thing' and it looked perfect. It look almost as though I was meant to wear it, but then again it was in my size.

Wednesday went by fast, and I made it in the final two. I really wasn't expecting it. I made it to the final two, and tomorrow is the finale. I know I won't win, the girl who is the other finalist is way better than I am.

Thursday I was getting ready early, because the Pepsi Pre Show Live wanted to talk with me before the show. They wanted to talk about a lot. How I felt about being apart of the final two, how I felt about this whole thing with One Direction. The boys have been in the media several times and have talked about one of the boys asking me out on the season finale. They would never said who it was which frustrated me, because I really wanted to know.



"So tonight we are talking with the fantastically talented Josh Melbourne. Josh, how does it feel to be in the final two? Has it changed you in any way? Is it hard to think that you might be going home without the contract?" The host asked one after another it was a little hard to keep track of all the questions.

"Well first, it feel wonderful to be apart of the final two, and I think my views over tonight have changed a lot since the beginning of the show. At first I just thought I would be another fall out, but got really psyched when I kept moving on. I don't really care if I win or lose tonight, because I will win in some way." I winked at the camera on my last sentence.

"You most certainly will. So on to you winning even if you lose. We have heard that one of the members of the internationally famous boyband One Direction is going to ask you to be his sweetheart. How do you feel about this?" I immediately started blushing.

"Well, when you put it that way, I feel kind of like I'm not good enough for him. Like he deserves some one better." I was staring at the floor with a sad look on my face.

"Oh Josh-" She was cut off by the sound of my phone going off. "Who is that?"

"It's him." I smiled brightly as I read it.

"Well, what does it say, or is it private?" She teased.

"'We will be there soon, and I saw that look, Josh you are good enough for me, and I will prove it tonight. You are amazing, and no matter what happens. And you should probably should get to the car you will be arriving soon.' Isn't he sweet. Wait, I need to go get changed and get ready."

"Well we better wrap up out talk with Josh, so he isn't late. We had a wonderful talk with one of the final two, but now it is time to say goodbye and see you at the show in just a few minutes." When she finished the camera shut off, and I said my goodbyes.
