One Direction Perform Secret Showcase Concert
One Direction made some very lucky fans extremely happy with their VEVO Lift Showcase concert. The blew the roof off of the intimate show, letting fans get a taste of what they can expect from their upcoming arena tours.
The ‘X Factor‘ U.K. alumni hit the stage and performed their catchiest tracks for their screaming Directioners — who at times drowned them out. Ladies’ man Harry Styles and lone Irishman Niall Horan grinned as they opened with ‘What Makes You Beautiful,’ testing out goofy dance moves along the way.
‘One Thing’ was next, during which the audience screamed particularly loudly for Zayn Malik during his first solo. This isn’t the first time that’s happened! Should Styles watch his back for his heartthrob role? We think so!
The lads jumped and led fans in hand claps during ‘Up All Night,’ then closed it out on a slower, softer note with ‘More Than This.’ Despite the melancholy nature of the song, Horan (who appeared to have trouble keeping his ear monitor in place throughout the show) and Louis Tomlinson exchanged glances in the opening chords and started chuckling, which Tomlinson did later on in the song with Styles as well. It’s good to know they can have a good time even when singing about having broken hearts!
