One Direction (aka One Edition) Commandeer New York City + ‘GMA’ [VIDEOS]
One Direction and their fans braved the New York City morning cold (Nov. 26) to perform on ‘Good Morning America.’ They joked in the pre-performance interview, where host Robin Roberts mistakenly referred to them as “One Edition,” that they do not usually get up this early and that they were shocked that the fans came out in the bitter cold.
Come on guys, really?! Of course Directioners dealt with the frigid weather in order to see them perform live in the Big Apple.
Those 1D boys — always so thankful to and impressed by their fans.
The most important reveal of the interview? Niall Horan and Harry Styles are the only singletons in the band and Zayn Malik has not yet set a date with fiancee Perrie Edwards.
Other tidbits? “Next year we’re doing the Where We Are Tour and we bringing it to North America,” Horan said. Tickets go on sale on Dec. 6. See the full list of dates here.
And how they felt about putting music they wrote for ‘Midnight Memories’ out there for fans to absorb? “If you ask anyone, putting out music that you’ve written, it’s you in the songs and that always adds more pressure and we were nervous about it, so to see how its been received…” Harry Styles mused with a smile, acknowledging the fact that the album is on track for a HUGE debut next week.
Liam Payne revealed that while on the road, he misses his bed. Louis Tomlinson said that he misses an English breakfast. Mmm!
When Roberts called them “One Edition” — twice!! — LT took a moment to pump his fist in the air and shout “One Edition! One Edition!” It was a cute moment and then Roberts realized her MAJOR verbal gaffe. Hey, at least 1D didn’t get mad at her and rip off their shirts, like Chris Brown did during his famous interview with Roberts a few years back. They’re too classy for that and it was too darn cold.
For their performance, the boys kicked off with ‘Best Song Ever’ but they battled major technical issues, as we couldn’t hear them for the first verse. But the crowd more than made up for it, singing along.
We loved watching Niall play guitar while he performed, too!
The sound issues were resolved by the time they performed a flawless version of ‘Story of My Life’ and their biggest hit ‘What Makes You Beautiful,’ which is what started it all.
They closed the free concert in Central Park with ‘Kiss You.’ It was met with tons and tons of shrieks.
