[pullquote quote="Get up, get out, get out of my head. And fall into my arms instead." credit="from 'One Thing'"]Whoever predicted the end of the boy-band phenomenon couldn’t have been more wrong. In the grand tradition of the [lastfm]Jackson 5[/lastfm], [lastfm]Backstreet Boys[/lastfm], [lastfm]New Edition[/lastfm] and [lastfm]N*SYNC[/lastfm] come this buzzy group of newcomers from England named [lastfm]One Direction[/lastfm]. Fan pandemonium is at an all-time high around these young stars of The X-Factor, so much so that their label was forced to move up the US release of their debut album Up All Night to meet the demand. Now with their record out, the guys are hitting towns and cities across the continent and greeting alarmingly-large crowds of screaming fans at every stop. Click through for video and song lyrics from [lastfm]One Direction[/lastfm].
[lastfm]One Direction[/lastfm] is made up of: Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. The group just cemented their status as music superstars with a win at the 2012 BRIT Awards where their song “What Makes You Beautiful” took home the prize for Best British Single, beating out the likes of [lastfm]Adele[/lastfm], [lastfm]Jessy J[/lastfm] and fellow boy-band dudes [lastfm]The Wanted[/lastfm].
Right now the guys from [lastfm]One Direction[/lastfm] are the subject of Vevo’s LIFT program – check out this interview from behind-the-scenes of their recent video shoot, where the guys talk about working with Simon Cowell on the UK version of The X Factor (they came in third).
