You are not taking yourselves too seriously. I really hope the public pick up the phones and keep up in because I love you guys." Fellow judge Mel B also praised the group. "I like you, you just know who you are and that is why my kids harp on and on about you," she said. "I have a three year-old, a seven year-old and a 15 year-old. They are absolutely in love with you." Post by Simon Cowell. Simon's comments about Eric's love of the Jungle Book track came just days after he shared a sweet video of the youngster playing the drums. The little nine-month-old can be seen smiling as he bops away to the sound of One Direction's Story of My Life while trying to bang on his toy instrument. Dressed in a little blue and white jumper and matching blue trousers, Eric smiles for the camera as he listens to those around him singing along to the music. Proud dad Simon shared the video on his official Facebook page, writing, "One Direction have just hired Eric as their new drummer."
