Over the course of a few months, and eight challenges, Dallas has proven its immense love for UK breakout group One Direction and has won the right to host the band at a special event this March. With the innovative Bring 1D to U.S. campaign, fans from cities across the United States competed against rival cities for the right to bring One Direction to their respective hometowns. Weekly challenges were posted by the band through @Bring1DtoUS on Twitter, as well as on www.Bring1DtoUs.com, and points were awarded to the winning city. The city with the most points at the conclusion of the eight challenges would win a special visit from One Direction. Cities were neck and neck during the challenges, creating video submissions, submitting fan art, and placing their signatures on online petition site Twitition - setting a record for a Twitition! Although New York, Chicago, Los Angeles were among the toughest competitors, it was Dallas that emerged victorious in the end.

One Direction will be making an appearance in the fifth season of the top-rated Nickelodeon series iCarly. In"iGot Jungle Worms," set to premiere later this year, One Direction play themselves as special guests on Carly's web show and perform their infectious single 'What Makes You Beautiful.'

The band will join the North American leg of the Big Time Rush "Better With U" tour beginning February 24th in Chicago (see below for dates.) Tickets are on sale at www.ticketmaster.com.

One Direction are Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik.
