Zayn has left One Direction, but the band is continuing on with the other members picking up the slack. So, who is singing what on each song now that the band’s members has gone from five to four? We’ve got the list!

When Zayn Malik, 22, departed One Direction in the middle of their tour, he left the group with an interesting problem: Who will sing his parts? Harry Styles, 21, Louis Tomlinson, 23, Liam Payne, 21 and Niall Horan, 21, still have many concerts to perform at before their tour ends. Instead of cancelling the shows to find a replacement, they decided to sing Zayn’s parts themselves! Want to know who’s singing what? Find out now!

One Direction: Who’s Singing Zayn Malik Solo Parts? List Reveals All

Twitter user @OneDream1D__ tweeted a picture that apparently showed which 1D member is now assigned to sing Zayn’s parts on each song on April 1. The picture looks to be taken from a Tumblr account, appropriately titled “craycrayobsessions.” Looking at the list, it seems one dedicated One Direction fan took notes during a recent concert of who sang what and when.

Wow. Out of 25 solos, it appears that Liam is shouldering the bulk of the extra work, singing 14 of them. Both Niall and Harry have taken over four, leaving Louis to cover the remaining three songs.

It’s impressive to see the four guys do the work of five, but having to pull double or triple duty on a song makes us wonder if they’ll start feeling even MORE frustrated over Zayn’s exit. They are reportedly mad that Zayn’s decision is tainting the band and have been dissing him openly during their shows. Having to work extra could only make these feelings worse.

Zayn Malik: One Direction Reality Show To Find His Replacement?

Will the remaining One Direction guys have to cover Zayn’s old parts for much longer, or are there plans underway to replace Zayn for good? Simon Cowell is reportedly considering a reality show to find Zayn’s replacement, a source told Star magazine.

“[Simon] is picturing a kind of Who Wants to Be a Boybander? type show, with auditions in both England and America,” the source said. We can only imagine the guys who would turn out for auditions to be a part of the biggest boy band in the world!

What do you think about the other 1D members singing Zayn’s parts, HollywoodLifers? Should they find a replacement for Zayn? Let us know!
