With a record deal inked both overseas at Capitol and in North America at Republic Records, Liam Payne — one-fifth of One Direction — is poised for global solo superstardom any day now.

Even as part of a troupe of singers, Liam still stood out with his smooth vocals and sweet falsetto styling, from the X Factor audition days all the way up to One Direction's last few concerts. We've compiled some of his (many!) standout live moments.

Check out the video above to experience Liam's best live vocals ever, and let us know if we missed any critical live performances from the 1D superstar.
