This morning, J-14 had the opportunity to experience one of the biggest events in Today Show history: One Direction taking over the stage for a performance to celebrate the release of their sophomore album, Take Me Home!
Despite the rain and chilly weather, thousands of fans camped out (some for days!) to get a glimpse of the guys' performance -- and they weren't disappointed. 1D performed six songs in total, half of which aired this morning on the 'Today Show' and three that will air tomorrow. Among the tracks they rocked live were their hit songs "What Makes You Beautiful" and "One Thing," as well as Ed Sheeran-penned ballads "Little Things" and "Moments," their first 'Take Me Home' single "Live While We're Young," and -- for the first time EVER! -- their next single "Kiss You!"
In between filmings, the guys thanked their fans for waiting out in the rain and signed autographs whenever they could. (Liam even took a fan's camera to take a picture with her from the stage!)
They also made a huge announcement: that their first 3D movie would be hitting theaters on August 30, 2013!
Check out tons of exclusive pics below -- and a video of 1D performing their next single "Kiss You" for the first time live!
