When I was small, I had a desk.

It was weird, because I wrote on it,

"When I grow up, I wanna be a singer."

I, like, scribed it in.

And it's still on the desk.

Life at home was my dad,

mom and my three sisters.

You could say I had

a heavy woman influence

from a young age.

We lived in a tiny house.

I used to have a little bed

in my mum and dad's room.

I used to sit on the windowsill and

imagine things like winning the lottery.

When I was little, I knew

that I wanted to entertain people.

I was a proper show-off.

At school, I was always

trying to play the class clown.

I've always been that guy

that made people laugh.

I used to get kicked

out of class for singing

Irish traditional songs

at the back of geography.

I could always hear my sister's

music at the top of the stairs,

and I used to pretend

to have a guitar

and I'd perform in my mirror

in my bedroom.

I wasn't really interested

in things that other kids

were interested in.

They were interested in football

and I was more creative.

Wherever I went, my dad seemed

to tell people that I could sing.

It'd be like 2, 3 in the morning

and I'd be singing full power

at the top of my voice.

My sister'd be banging

on the wall, going:

"Shut up, you can't even sing.

Go to sleep."

- Three, two, one.

- We push!

That was kind of, I

guess, where the dream started.

Oh! What'd you do that for?


It feels like we've been

Living in fast forward

Another moment passing by

Up. up, up all night

The party's ending

And it's now or never

Nobody's going home tonight

Up. up, up all night

Katy Perry's on replay

She's on replay

DJ got the floor to shake

The floor to shake

People going all the way

Yeah, all the way

I'm still wide awake

- Here we go, London!

- I wanna stay

Up all night

And jump around

Until we see

The sun

I wanna stay

Up all night

And find a girl

And tell her

She's the one

Hold on to the feeling

And don't let it go

'Cause we got the floor now

Get out of control

I wanna stay up

All night

And do it all

With you

Up all night

O2 Arena, welcome

to the Take Me Home tour!

London, are you ready?

Katy Perry's on replay

She's on replay

DJ got the floor to shake

Up all night, up all night

The floor to shake

We're gonna wanna

stay Up all night


Up all night

Up all night

We're gonna wanna stay

Up all night



I wanna stay

Up all night

And jump around

Until we see

The sun

I wanna stay

Up all night

And find a girl

And tell her

She's the one

Hold on to the feeling

And don't let it go

'Cause we got the floor now

Get out of control

I wanna stay

Up all night

And do it all

With you

Up all night

Like this, all night

Hey, up all night

Like this, all night, hey

Up all night

One Direction! One Direction!

One Direction!

British boy band One Direction

has arrived

to the frenzied screams of fans.

Security was needed

to control hundreds of fans.

One Direction is taking over

the music world

one country at a time.

One Direction.

One Direction.

One Direction.

One Direction.

One Direction.

They're number one here in Australia.

Number one in the U.S.

One Direction are number one

in more than 35 countries.

Even the Beatles never achieved

such transatlantic success so early

in their careers.

It's happened so, so quickly.

It's not just unusual...

And live while we're young

it's unprecedented.

1D definitely

set the pace for 2012,

selling out their entire 2013

arena tour in mere hours.

The group was forced

to add even more dates

after selling out an impressive six days

at London's renowned O2 Arena.

Whether we're together

Or apart

We can both remove the masks

And admit we regret it

From the start

Oh, yeah.

Yeah. Now I'm feeling good.

It's nerve-racking

being here now though,

and actually seeing, like,

where you're actually playing.

Like, I sat here the other

week watching Kanye West play.

And now we're here.

I just feel a bit nervous.

All right, fellas, let's start.

So first day of rehearsals.

They've done

the same choreography the last

two years. Now I'm changing it.

Heads, Will!


- Should we start?

Louis, you're on that X.

I was never really a fan

of boy bands before One Direction.

I'm a massive boy band fan myself.

Backstreet Boys, NSYNC.

When people say,

"You're in a boy band,"

I'm like, "Yeah, I am,

but I'm in a cool boy band."

So I'm like, "Okay, whatevs."

Would he say

He's in L-O-V-E?

Right from the start,

we were always very vocal

that we couldn't follow

the boy band stereotypes.

Choreographed dance routines,

and everything's the same.

Here we go!

Go, Niall!

Taking the crowd with you!

Love the stag.

Keep the stag.

Really good, like that. Keep that in.

Paul, our choreographer,

gets bored, I think.

Niall, up that ramp.

Harry, come on!

It's a free-for-all.

They hate dancing

with a passion

and it goes to a whole

sort of different level.

Can we just put that in?

Some point in the--

That's the dinosaur.

It's a bird pecking the sea.

No, the bird, you dance out here,

and the dinosaur's this.

I love how we basically take the piss

out of dance moves.

And the winner:

Zayn Malik.

Okay, from the top.

When you go on tour,

the outfit you've got's the

outfit you're stuck with,

so I'm gonna be wearing these clothes

for a good eight months now.

Is this working?
