One Direction took to The X Factor stage last night to perform their latest hit “Steal My Girl”.
Well, they actually pre-recorded the performance last week, as we heard that they had to go through the process twice, thanks to Harry Styles wearing the wrong shirt. Typical.
A source told The Mirror at the time: “He was wearing white and then they did it again ‘cos he needed to be in black like the rest of the band.”
So, we finally got to see the performance on TV last night. And despite the previous fashion hiccup, and the show’s host Dermot O’Leary seemingly announcing that there was only four members in One Direction as he introduced them, it all seemed to run fairly smoothly.
The boys looked super hot in their matching black outfits, and they sounded AMAZING – of course. So, it turns out that the re-recording was worth it in the end as we were loving Harry’s open-buttoned shirt.
Check out their X Factor performance below:
We have to admit, we were a little disappointed that we didn’t get a sneak peek of their upcoming single “Night Changes” instead, but we always love a good “Steal My Girl” performance.
And can we just discuss Liam’s dance moves on stage for a moment? He was really ROCKING it wasn’t he?!
What did you think of the boys’ X Factor performance?
Directioners all over the world have been trying their best to beat the VEVO record, since Steal My Girl was thrust into the limelight yesterday.
Will we do it?
Well as it stands, we’re rumoured to have between 13-16m views, but nobody ever really knows until the 24 hours is up and the scores have been counted. The current VEVO record is currently held by Nicki Minaj with her Anaconda video, racking up 19.6 million clicks.
It looks fairly positive that we’ll do it, but we have to keep on watching and refreshing, on as many devices as we can.
Mobiles, tablets, desktops, laptops, you name it…..
We were hoping to keep hush hush about the whole thing until it was officially announced, but a few other websites have latched on to the news so we thought we may as well spill the beans on what we know…
We’ve heard some more news that tour dates are definitely lined up for the UK, as well as a select few countries in Europe. We’re still doing a bit of digging to find out if there’s any USA dates lined up, but we can’t confirm anything just yet.
Following their mammoth ‘Where We Are’ tour this year, the boys are planning on hitting up even more stadiums next year, as well as arena shows in some countries.
Tickets for the brand new tour dates go on sale on Saturday 1st November, with ticket staff around the country being ordered to work overtime on the day – due to the crazy high demand, probably!
One Direction are due to make an announcement of the new dates within the next two or three days, leaving just over a week before tickets go on sale.
Are you excited for the announcement of new tour dates?
