Yes, you heard it right!
According to an official Channel 7 promo video for the new season, the boys will "join" the next instalment of the hit show!
The clip begins with footage of 1D’s rise to fame story on the UK version of the show.
“One Direction joins Australia's X Factor to find Australia's next superstar or supergroup," Aussie X-Factor host Luke Jacobz says in the video.
But TV bosses are leaving fans guessing about exactly what kind of role the lads will have in the show.
“This year X-Factor is different,” Jacobz teases in the clip, before cutting to footage of the five-piece saying, “It’s gonna be amazing.”
One Direction, who’ve just wrapped up their North America tour, came third on the U.K. version of the ‘X-Factor’ back in 2010.
