One Direction Take Over ‘TODAY’ Show [PHOTOS + VIDEO]
One Direction took over the ‘TODAY’ show this morning (Aug. 23), promoting their new film ‘This Is Us’ and celebrating their massive success. Niall Horan joked that he is pregnant, stealing Zayn Malik’s engagement thunder. Then they performed. It was a total OMG 1D AM!
Matt Lauer gave the boys guff since ‘TODAY’ show footage landed on the cutting room floor for ‘This Is Us.’ They promised that it was not their choice! But every time they tried to talk… the screams were way too loud. Directioners, next time, can we hear?
Zayn did offer one sentence about his new status as an engaged man, saying, “We’re engaged, we’re really happy,” and it was met with screams from 18,000 fans.
When asked about the downside of fame at such a young age, Liam Payne answered, “I don’t think it’s any different with how old you are. The biggest downside is being away from home.”
The boys than performed ‘What You Makes You Beautiful’ among fans holding up posters of them as Mt. Rushmore. That was brilliant. There were SO many Directioners that the crowd could barely move.
Then we were treated to ‘Best Song Ever’ by the best boy band ever. Yeah, we said it! Niall even strapped on the guitar. Then it was a little ‘Kiss You.’ Mwah.
Who is cutest member of 1D? Seriously, we could never pick one. It’s too hard.
Sittin’ pretty in NYC.
Hunky Harry Styles. Oh, how the Directions lurve him.

Sassy Louis. We love this mischief-making smile.
