J-14 reader Stephanie from NJ was the lucky winner of J-14 <3s 1D Contest #5 and won One Direction Today Show tickets! Check out Stephanie's blog about her experience at The Today Show in New York City below:
Last Monday, I got to see One Direction perform on the Today show, thanks to winning two tickets through J-14's Twitter contest. I still can't believe it. When my friend and I got to Rockefeller Center around 5am, there were already a ton of people! Not to mention, there were even ambulances on site! Crazy! Around 6:30 a.m., the guys came out and did a soundcheck to three of their songs. They sang "More Than This", "One Thing", and of course "What Makes You Beautiful." Can I just say that Louis looked adorable in his beanie?
Later on, the guys came out to perform again, only this time for television. The coolest thing was watching them make their grand entrance from a bus and then jump on stage to sing "What Makes You Beautiful." They sang the same three songs again. The crowd was so energetic. We were all singing and dancing along to the guys. At one point, we even got on TV! Matt Lauer and Anne Curry from the Today show interviewed them real quick and I loved hearing their accents in person, so dreamy. They're all such cuties and total sweethearts! Not only did we see the guys, we even got to see Cee Lo Green since Al Roker interviewed him right in front of us. We touched his hand! Ahh! We had such a blast seeing our favorite band. Thanks so much J-14 for the experience!
