If you were sad that One Direction couldn’t show up for the Teen Choice Awards then you can smile again since the band will be performing live at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards September 6.
British cuties – Zayn Malik, 19, Liam Payne, 18, Harry Styles, 18, and Louis Tomlinson, 20 – will rock the stage at the Staples Center. The boys are nominated for Best New Artist. Also in the running in the same category are Carly Rae Jepsen and The Wanted.
“We’re really looking forward to the VMAs,” Liam Payne told MTV News. “It’s quite nerve-racking as well, because obviously there’s been so many historical moments and stuff that have happened at the VMAs. Now we want to make a moment ourselves, but who knows?”
