One Direction‘s This Is Us movie director Morgan Spurlock may have known that Zayn Malikalways hated the attention he got from being in the band, but he also thinks he’s the best singer in the group! The director recently appeared on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live with Nick Lachey and admitted that he thinks Zayn had the best vocals in the group.

“It’s gonna be interesting to see what happens. I think that [Zayn] is an incredible talent, a huge singer, probably the best singer in the group,” he said.

He also predicted that Harry will be the next to leave the band!

“I predict these guys will stay together for a while, I predict Harry will probably go off on his own some point, and then Louis, Liam, and Niall will… I think they’re gonna create a new thing,” he said.

Wow! We can’t believe that Morgan has such strong opinions about the future of 1D!

While Zayn definitely has his signature high notes that the other guys haven’t quite been able to hit, everyone in the band has phenomenal vocals. And judging by Simon Cowell’s optimism about the guys’ fifth studio album, we think they’ll be fine without Zayn.
