“Having come from the U.K. ‘X Factor,’ we can’t wait to perform on the U.S. stage ­– it’s going to be a great night!” said One Direction’s Zayn Malik.

Fellow One Direction member Niall Horan agreed.

“We’re really excited to be on the American X Factor,” Niall said. “It’ll be the first time we’ve performed in front of ‘Uncle Si’ since we were on the U.K. X Factor. So, hopefully, we’ll make him proud!”
