The British Are Coming! One Direction Set To Conquer America
By Lyndsey Parker

Groups didn't fare too well on the American version of "The X Factor" last year, but in Britain, it's been a whole other story. A girl group called Little Mix won "The X Factor U.K." last season; Season 5's JLS is huge overseas; and now One Direction, a made-for-TV boy band that came in third on "The X Factor U.K." Season 7, is set to invade America--possibly ushering in a whole new boy-band revival in the process, as their mentor Simon Cowell claimed in a recent Reality Rocks interview. "Pop music is going to make a big comeback, and you're definitely going see that starting with One Direction," Simon boldly predicted.

Many adult Americans probably only discovered One Direction this week, when the group made its live U.S. television debut on "The Today Show" and announced a much-hyped "Saturday Night Live" April 7th appearance. But judging from the absolutely crazed fan reaction at the boys' "Today Show" concert Monday morning, plenty of young American tween girls are already intimately familiar with One Direction. (Some of those girls actually camped out for three days to catch a glimpse of the group they affectionately call "1D.") The mania surrounding this merry band of Brit poppers is reminiscent of the 1990s' Spice Girls phenomenon...or, as "The Today Show" even dared to claim this week, of Beatlemania back in the day.

One Direction is already a global sensation: The quintet's debut album Up All Night, which finally comes out in America this week, was the fastest seller in Britain last year, and it's already landed on top 10 album charts in 15 different countries. The video for 1D's first single, "What Makes You Beautiful," has racked up 65 million YouTube views, and the boys have more than two million Twitter followers and four million Facebook likes. "What Makes You Beautiful" even somewhat shockingly beat out Adele's "Someone Like You" for Best Single at this year's BRIT Awards.

So, will One Direction experience similar success on this side of the pond? My guess is yes. They're cute, spunky, and their perfectly sugary pop songs have been crafted by some of the best pro hitmakers in the biz, like Carl Falk (Nicki Minaj, Backstreet Boys, Taio Cruz), Matt Squire (3OH!3, Good Charlotte, Selena Gomez), Rami Yacoub (Danity Kane, Pink, *NSYNC), RedOne (Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Akon), Steve Mac (The Wanted, Cobra Starship, Leona Lewis), and Toby Gad (Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Brandy, Natasha Bedingfield, Fergie, various Idols). They're also appearing on Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards on March 31 and touring America this spring with Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush, and their Yahoo! searches jumped 22 percent this week. So how could One Direction go in any direction but to the top of the U.S. charts?

Brush up on some fun facts about One Direction now, so you'll be better prepared for this imminent British Invasion:

-- Just like "The X Factor USA's" less successful groups Lakoda Rayne and InTENsity, One Direction started out as a manufactured act. Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson, whose ages ranged between 16 and 18 at the time, all auditioned for "The X Factor U.K." as solo singers, and had never met before going on the show in 2010. The idea to put them together in a group was originally suggested by "X Factor U.K." guest judge Nicole Scherzinger--interesting and ironic, considering how ill-fated Nicole's stint on "The X Factor USA" turned out.

-- One of the songs on Up All Night, "Tell Me A Lie," was co-written by Simon Cowell's old friend Kelly Clarkson; the track was originally intended for Kelly's own 2011 album, Stronger. I'd personally love to hear Kelly's shelved version someday.



-- Another 1D track, "One Thing," sounds an awful lot like a classic from the '90s boy-band era, "I Want It That Way" by Backstreet Boys. Coincidence? Who knows? But One Direction's core fans are probably too young to remember BSB's original anyway.

-- If One Direction had won "The X Factor U.K.," their coronation song was going to be a cover of Alphaville's '80s prom ballad "Forever Young." How fitting! Listen to their surprisingly decent leaked cover of the song HERE.

One Direction: A Guide To The Biggest Boy Band Around
After thousands turned out to see the British group perform on 'Today,' we look at who they are and how they got so big so fast.
By John Mitchell

On Monday morning (March 12), One Direction made their American television debut on "Today," performing their hits "What Makes You Beautiful," "One Thing" and "More Than This" in front of what was, according to Matt Lauer, one of the biggest crowds ever to pack the plaza — right up there with the numbers attracted by top pop acts like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.

If the throngs of screaming teenage girls left you scratching your head, wondering what all the fuss was about, it's not your fault. These guys seem to have come out of nowhere and already have people asking, "Are One Direction the next Beatles?"

Why is everyone suddenly talking about One Direction? Let's take a look.

What is One Direction?
We're glad you asked. One Direction is a five-member boy band. They are already very popular in their native U.K. (hence the Beatles comparison), where their debut album, Up All Night, has already gone double-platinum. Night is being released in the U.S. on Tuesday.

Though the lead single from Night, "What Makes You Beautiful," has only recently been added to U.S. radio, it is already a hit, with sales of 255,000 in just three weeks, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at #28 in late February, giving the boys the highest debut chart position of any U.K. act since the Spice Girls' "Wannabe" opened at #11 in January 1997.

"Beautiful," a carefree pop ditty with an infectious chorus, bested Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" to take home the fan-voted Best British Single prize at the Brit Awards last month.

The fan frenzy around One Direction is reminiscent of the early days of Bieber Fever. When the band made its first public appearance in the U.S. at Boston's Natick Mall on March 4, more than 5,000 screaming fans descended on the shopping center. It was a relatively peaceful scene, though, especially when compared to the riot that broke out in 2009 when the 3,000 fans who had gathered at Long Island's Roosevelt Field Mall to see Bieber began pushing and shoving as they got word that police were canceling the event because the crowd had become too rowdy.

A likely reason the band already has such a large and fervent fanbase here in the U.S. is their accessibility on YouTube, where the video for "What Makes You Beautiful" has nearly 69 million views. YouTube is also largely credited with launching Bieber.

Who is in the band?
The five English and Irish gents in One Direction are Niall Horan, 18, Zayn Malik, 19, Liam Payne, 18, Harry Styles, 18, and Louis Tomlinson, 20. In typical boy-band fashion, each guy has his own shtick. This morning on "Today," we learned that Horan is the "cute little Irish one," Malik is the "quiet and mysterious" one, Payne is "the sensible one," Styles is "the charming one" and Tomlinson is "the funny one."

Each group member appeared on the 2010 season of the U.K. version of "The X Factor," where they tried and failed to make the cut in the individual boys category. At the suggestion of the show's producers, they joined forces and re-entered as a group. Together as One Direction, they ultimately finished third in the competition and were signed to "X Factor" creator Simon Cowell's Syco Records.

What's next?
The sky's the limit.

One Direction recently wrapped up a small joint tour with another boy band, Big Time Rush, and its success inspired Entertainment Weekly to run a story with a headline asking, "Are Boy Bands Officially Back?"

Considering the success of the Wanted, who just wrapped their tour of the U.S. and U.K. at Dublin's massive O2 Arena on Friday and will release their U.S. debut April 24, it's a question many are now asking. It's been a long time since the Backstreet Boys, 'NSYNC and 98 Degrees ruled pop radio, and the out-of-nowhere success of the Wanted and One Direction have a lot of people wondering whether, after several years of hip-hop stars and pop divas ruling the charts, we're in for a boy-band revival.

One Direction are already booked to perform at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards on March 31 as well as on "Saturday Night Live" on April 7. The band's December-January Up All Night tour of the U.K. sold out in minutes, prompting the band to add an Oceania leg with five dates planned across Australia and New Zealand in April. The next logical step would be a tour of the U.S., though no plans have been announced.

What do you think of One Direction? Is it all just hype or will the boys be around for a while? Let us know in the comments below!
