As much as we adore Katy Perry, the most highly anticipated performance of the 2012 Kids' Choice Awards was absolutely reserved for One Direction -- and they definitely didn't disappoint.

Emerging as silhouettes, the five-piece boy band brought their powerhouse vocals and coordinating black and white ensembles to the stage. Their melodies soared just as high as the giant white balls hurled from the stage into the crowd.

The masses weren't the only ones delighted by their music -- megastars were too! Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift and Ashley Tisdale all sang and danced along, while Katy Perry bopped her head nearby. Malia, Sasha and First Lady Michelle Obama clapped along, as did their Secret Service security detail!

The performance won't be the lads' last time on the small screen. The 'X Factor' alums will appear on 'iCarly' next Saturday, April 6, and their hit 'What Makes You Beautiful' will be covered by the 'Glee' cast in an upcoming episode. Sounds like their One Direction is up!
