Quiiiiick before the video police take it down


One Direction are having a busy night aren't they? Fresh from picking up TWO awards (Best Pop Video and Most Shareworthy Video - details here), 1D scampered up to the stage to lose their VMA virginity at the MTV Video Music Awards this evening.



We're glad they did One Thing - not that we're tired of What Makes You Beautiful, but everyone gets a face-scrunchy solo in One Thing, and we spotted Taylor Lautner singing along in the audience, before Katy Perry leaned in to Rihanna and sang the words into her ear.

Anyway, video demons usually take this kind of fun stuff fown from the internet pretty pronto, so here are some gratuitous screen grabs just in case.

You can thank us with coffee. WE'RE BLOODY SHATTERED STAYING UP TO WATCH THIS.
