You know, we're just going to say it. One Direction had their most emotional performance yet. The guys performed "History" on the X Factor UK finals, and it really is the end of an era. While the group is only going on a break, they're closing a major chapter of their life as a band.

While they're singing their hearts out, throwback images flash on the screen. (Yes, they even include Zayn Malik.) The guys end on an emotional group hug, and we can't even handle it.

"We're sad that we're going away for a little while, but we need it. Just thank you to all the fans that supported us over the years. You can see how happy we are, and it's just genuine happiness and it's all because of you guys, so thank you so much," Liam Payne said.

Stop it, Payno! You're going to make us cry. Oh wait, too late…

Watch their performance below, and let us know what you think of it in the comments!
