Taylor Swift and Alicia Keys brought US star power to the red carpet at the NRJ Music Awards this evening in Cannes. Both arrived in France recently to attend the awards, which also attracted musical acts like Psy and One Direction. Tonight may be an awkward one for Taylor Swift since she may run into her ex Harry Styles of One Direction. He and his bandmates Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson hit the carpet as well. Both Taylor and Alicia had stunning — though different — looks before the show began. Alicia wore a cutout Michael Kors gown, with husband Swizz Beatz on her arm, and apparently got a great reception. She tweeted, "France, I can feel the love!" Taylor, meanwhile, donned a sequined gold mini from Elie Saab.
UK boy band One Direction is making their mark on the US scene after their turn on Britain's X Factor in 2010. They're currently traveling the world on their Up All Night tour, and stopped in NYC to perform on Saturday Night Live last weekend. Click through to find out more about the group and its five members, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson as they continue to dominate the charts with their catchy hits!
The guys of One Direction, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson, let loose off the coast of Sydney today. The group is fresh off an SNL performance over the weekend, and seems to be celebrating with some much-deserved downtime before embarking on their Australian tour. The British-Irish boy band rose to fame following a third place finish on the seventh season of the UK's X Factor, and since then they've been signed to Columbia and Simon Cowell's own Syco Records.
The group is taking the music charts by storm around the globe. Their album, Up All Night, is currently ranked in the top 10 on iTunes and their latest single "What Makes You Beautiful" has been teetering between the number one and two positions on the digital singles chart. In addition to dominating the online music industry, the band is also selling out shows on multiple continents. The Australian leg of their tour is completely sold out, and tickets for their Dec. 3 Madison Square Garden concert went on sale Friday and were gone in less than an hour!
