|One Direction appears on Saturday Night Live|
The amazing British boy band ?One Direction? finally made their U.S. television debut Saturday night when they appeared as the musical guest on NBC?s ?Saturday Night Live?.
The show was hosted by ?Modern Family? actress Sofia Vergara, and not only did One Direction perform two songs but they also appeared in one of the comedy sketches.
One Direction members Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson performed ?That?s What Makes You Beautiful? and ?One Thing?.

The guys also joined together in a comedy sketch called ?The Manuel Ortiz Show? – a strange but funny take on late night talk shows in other countries. One Direction is seen toward the end of the sketch (you might want to fast forward) in full comedy makeup and acting goofy.
The boys also made another debut Saturday night when they appeared on the popular “iCarly” TV show. Not only did they perform on the show but they had to memorize tones of dialog and were in almost every scene.
“Having One Direction on set was really cool, we didn’t really know what to expect from them, because we had heard that they didn’t really have any acting experience because they have a lot of lines and are almost in every scene. So we were uncertain as to how well the shooting would go. But we were all very pleasantly surprised they did very, very well, especially Harry, because he had to pretend to be sick the whole time. … It was cool, just seeing the five of us mesh with the five of them.”
Well, now that the boys have been introduced to U.S. TV viewers we suspect their fame will only continue to skyrocket!
Go get ?em boys!
