The band that has taken over Europe -- and the Internet! -- by storm is finally coming to the U.S.!
Former The X Factor UK group One Direction's debut album Up All Night was the UK's biggest debut of 2011, and now it will officially be released on Syco/Columbia Records here this spring on... drumroll, please... March 20, 2012.
Their addictive single "What Makes You Beautiful" has already snagged 24 million views -- and the official approval of J-14 Magazine.
