It is now common knowledge that One Direction are going to be appearing on 'iCarly', and are in the US at the moment filming the episode.
According to MTV US, One Direction’s episode will go something like this: ‘Carly returns home sick after a trip and discovers that One Direction has accepted an invitation to perform on their web show. Not long after arriving, bandmate Harry becomes sick and we see Carly doting over him. Realizing Harry is playing sick for the attention, they hatch a plan to get him back in the group by telling him Gibby has become their newest bandmember.”
Sounds like a pretty standard idea, but it does seem like Harry Styles is going to have a slightly larger role in the episode than the other lads.
Considering they are One Direction and not Harry with four other guys, is this a good idea on the writers’ parts? And could Miranda Cosgrove, dare we say, be Harry's new replacement for Caroline Flack?! Don't judge, it's just a thought!
But that is the least of the bands problems at the moment, as according to Nickutopia, some 1D fans have mixed feelings about them appearing on the show in the first place.
Nickutopia reported that some fans have argued ‘that One Direction and iCarly could not be more different. Made up of guys 17-20 years old who are known for swearing and talking about sex, One Direction is not exactly geared towards an audience of young children who, as the 1D fanbase argues, is the major demographic iCarly viewers.’
Strong words - maybe a tad too much? Does the fact that they will apparently be performing What Makes You Beautiful on the show sweeten the deal for them? Only time will tell...
Some people, according to the same website, have also said that they see One Direction's appearance on the show as them ‘selling out.’ Personally, we wouldn’t go that far. We're just looking forward to seeing their beautiful faces and acting skills.
Right, let’s hear it. What are your thoughts on One Direction appearing on iCarly? Are you happy they’re making this leap, do you think this is a bad move or are you just happy for them no matter what?
