One Direction's American number one album

Record has hit the peak position in the download chart on Apple's iTunes platform.
One Direction had their moment of creation on the X Factor.
British boy band One Direction have gained an American number one with their first LP.

The record has hit the peak position in the download chart on Apple's iTunes platform over the pond.

The group had their moment of creation on the X Factor in 2010, although they did not win, but came third.

Up All night, the band's record, was released on these shores last year. So far it has sprouted singles such as You Don't Know You're Beautiful and One Thing.

Pop star Katy Perry has written a tweet reading "congratulations, you didn't let me down!" and sent it to band member Niall Horan.

Perry was referring to the fact that she was instrumental in helping the young man to progress when he was on The X Factor.

She made an appearance on the talent show in the same season that One Direction were on it.

"Thank you for putting me thru" Horan tweeted back, "we've been working hard, I won't let you down."

As well as their record, One Direction's website already stocks such items as dolls, hoodies and mugs for their eager fans to snap up.ADNFCR-2133-ID-801317135-ADNFCR Posted on 14 Mar 2012 10:32 to category : Band / Celebrity News
