Liam Payne is a busy Christmas elf traveling around the country lending his vocal talents to the 2017 Jingle Ball tour, but he actually found some time to visit an all-girls Catholic high school just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. The students took part in the AMP 103.3’s Kick It With Liam contest where they collected over 4,000 pairs of shoes – all being donated to the Big Brother Big Sister Foundation of Boston. What was their reward? Swooning over Liam in the flesh while he belted out his recent hits including "Bedroom Floor" and "Strip That Down".
However, The Boston Globe got some pretty amazing back stories from the girls at the school. One girl legitimately forgot what was on her math test that she had to take just before Liam performed and if that is not all of us then I don't know what is. When asked about the exam all she could say was, "I don’t know. I’m just so excited." LOL!
Besides the fact that Liam is super hunky and every single girl was drooling, there was one other issue that the school board thought about before his performance. It was the idea of his lyrics and what they meant. To be clear, "Strip That Down" and "Bedroom Floor" aren't exactly family friendly or school appropriate for that matter. But, it's Liam Payne. It's a One Direction superstar. This chance may not ever come up again.
Another student spoke about the lyric controversy and said, "They’re just words. They don’t mean anything, that’s my philosophy."
A reporter from The Boston Globe posted two videos on Instagram of Liam and the girls singing along to the catchy lyrics. She captioned the shots, "Hi this is me reporting live from Notre Dame Academy in Hingham where #liampayne performed for high school kids and now I can’t hear @bostonglobelife @bostonglobe (he did not do #onedirection songs)."
This isn't the first time that the students of Notre Dame Academy in Hingham, Massachusetts has been in the presence of a big-name celebrity. In 2013 they collected 2,770 coats for the same foundation and were treated to a private concert by Ed Sheeran. Obviously, they don't just like music. These girls like giving back and helping their community just as much.
