Zayn 2.0? If One Direction is looking for a replacement for recent escapee Zayn Malik, they have one very talented former boy bander who seems interested.
O-Town dropout Ashley Parker Angel took to Twitter on Monday, April 6 to share a 15-second “audition” video of himself singing the group’s hit single, “Night Changes.”

“Just in case @onedirection decides they want the token older brother member #fakeaudition #15secondscover,” he captioned the clip.
Honestly, it’s not bad, Mr. Angel! But the group, which is currently made up of Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan, should be wary of inducting the O-Town alum, 33, into their brotherhood.
After O-Town disbanded in 2003, the guys tried to reunite and make fangirls’ dreams come true in 2013. Angel was the only member who turned down the offer. Not cool.
Angel isn’t the only former boy bander to speak out after the vacancy on 1D’s lineup was announced in late March. 'N Sync singer Lance Bass Instagrammed a photo that read, “I’ll continue to love the boys, I’ll continue to love Zayn, I’ll stay until the end. I made a promise. The promise of a directioner.”
And former pop star Aaron Carter tweeted, “i would join one direction but i think i always preferred being a solo artist.”
