“I should’ve blocked Niall!” Clarkson yelled. The Steal My Girl singer then responded, “I know him!” referring to his former bandmate Harry Styles before convincing the Contestant with his pitch.

He continued,

“Sign of the Times,when it came out, it wasn’t your obvious pop song. It was a bit alt, off to the left a bit, and that’s what you scream. There’s so many different artists, so many different genres I could hear you sing.”

After hearing Nialll Horan’s clever pitch, Laura Littleton made her final decision to join his team.
