One Direction confirmed to perform on the Today Show

Boyband One Direction have revealed that they are going to perform on the Today Show next month. 

The lads, who are due to head out on tour in the U.S. in support of Big Time Rush in a few weeks' time, are set to appear on the popular NBC breakfast chat show on March 12 and tweeted the fantastic news to their fans:

"We’re going to perform on @todayshow on Monday March 12th. Who's planning to come down to see us? #1Dtodayshow."

UK heartthrobs The Wanted recently finished their first stateside run of dates and enjoyed incredible success in the country so it's the perfect time for One Direction to head out to America and try to follow suit. 

They have already started the groundwork as they had a cameo on popular teen series iCarly, which will be aired this spring.  




Watch the boys' video diary update, in which they answer a series of questions from their followers, below:
