Who's the best member of One Direction? Which guy is the best singer? Who seems the funniest? And which one is the hottest? They're hard questions to answer, but this list lets you rank every member of One Direction from best to worst.

When you're ranking the members of One Direction, maybe you'll vote for Harry Styles. Not only is he responsible for some of the group's catchiest melodies, but he's poised to embark on a dazzling solo career, too.
