The boy band beat the likes of Adele and Jessie J to pick up the prize for Best British Single for ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ at the glitzy ceremony last week and headed to the fast-food chain afterwards to mark their victory with some burgers.
During an appearance on ‘New Music Live’ on Canadian TV channel MuchMusic, Niall Horan revealed: “There were some big stars on the red carpet, will.i.am was just behind us, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, it was so weird. This shows how common and normal we are, we went to the biggest night in British music and we went to McDonald’s after!”
The five boys were mobbed by screaming girls on their way into the studio and their fans stayed outside the building chanting for them until they all left.
Harry Styles insists he and the other guys love their fans and admitted it was them who made it possible for the group to beat Adele to the award, he said: “For us to be in the category up against Adele, it just shows how great our fans are, it was voted for by the fans so it’s as much their award as it is ours.”
One Direction – Niall, Harry, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson – are signed to Simon Cowell’s label Syco and were formed on the UK version of the music mogul’s show ‘The X Factor’.
