It’s hard to believe a world without One Direction as they seem to have been everywhere and with us for ages. Yet Niall, Louis, Liam, Harry and Zayn have only been around in the charts for a year yet have notched up an incredible 12 million sales worldwide in less than a year including 8 million singles, 3 million albums and a million DVDs. Their debut album UP ALL NIGHT has sold over 3 million copies worldwide and has hit No.1 in 16 different countries, including the USA where they became the first ever UK band to debut at No.1 on the US Billboard chart. The album is currently the top selling debut album of 2012 in the US. Last night their record company Sony celebrated this amazing success the band were presented with a special award.
  
Liam from the band says: “We are obviously ecstatic and incredibly humbled by our award today. We have an incredible team of people around us who have helped us achieve this and above all we would like to thank our fans. We owe all our success to them.”
  
One Direction have just celebrated their two year anniversary, marking the time they came together at boot camp on the UK’s X Factor. The band are currently writing and recording their forthcoming second album.
