One Direction pay tribute to Michael Jackson with tour cover song

The heartthrobs of One Direction recently honoured the late Michael Jackson by performing a fantastic version of one of his most loved hits.

During their concert at the Gwinnett Center Arena in Atlanta, Georgia on June 26, just one day after the third anniversary of the King of Pop's untimely death, they received a tweet from a fan in the audience who asked them: "Will you sing a Michael Jackson song, in memory of him yesterday?"

After the lads' backing guitarist confirmed that he knew how to play 'Man In The Mirror', they launched into an impromptu rendition of it, much to the crowd's delight.

Earlier this evening (June 27), the group announced details of an exciting competition that will allow one lucky winner the chance to board a plane with them for a special lunch and a flight "to a secret location".
