Liam Payne has a long, deep connection to U.K. TV talent show “The X Factor”, which is not only the show in which he and the rest of One Direction was discovered, but also where his girlfriend (and mother of their son, Bear) has served as judge.
Cole was in the audience on Saturday night’s telecast to cheer on Liam as he performed. However, as The Sun reports, something odd happened as soon as Payne completed performing his new track, “Bedroom Floor”, with viewers left scratching their heads when he rushed off the stage and pulled Cole out of her seat as they hurriedly rushed out of the building.
Viewers of the show found the whole thing to be a little odd, and took to Twitter to wonder what the heck was going on.
Meanwhile, Payne himself took to Twitter to remark what a unique experience it was to return to “The X Factor” in order to perform his new single, noting that he’s “truly grateful.”
