One Direction makes itself at home at the Rose Bowl
The Rose Bowl was invaded last night by not one, but three British acts. One Direction, supported by English bands Five Seconds of Summer and Jamie Scott, launched the American leg of their Where We Are tour--and did not disappoint.

First off, the boys are actually talented. Each of them can hold their own vocally, and Niall plays guitar as well. Throughout the show, Niall was drumming along to the beat and riffing with the guitar player, demonstrating an understanding and interest in the musicality of their songs.

Second, the band has excellent showmanship. The boys were dancing goofing around and having a visibly good time. Each member took turns speaking to the audience in between songs. The songs, strung together with these interludes, took the audience on an emotional journey. From the highs, jumping around to hits like "Beautiful" and the slower times, when the band asked the audience to put their cell phone flashes on and up in the air, the energy in the stadium was contagious.

Third, the show was just plain fun. The stadium was outfitted with a rising stage (from which the band performed "Alive"). Fireworks went off throughout the show, culminating in a finale of fireworks at the end. The visuals were quality as well, with live videos of the performers interplayed with animations. Audience members' faces were flashed up onto the screen throughout the night.

The band played their hits "Story of My Life", "One Thing", "What Makes You Beautiful" and "Best Song Ever," as well other favorites such as "Moments", "Little White Lies" "Strong" and "Live While We're Young". In the middle of the show, the band was introduced and the guitarist, bassist, keyboardist and drummer got little solos to covers of songs. Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" was among those played, while the band sang it for a 30-second spot. You can download ringtones for these songs and more here.

One Direction recently released their new single "Fireproof" for free for 24 hours.

This was the first of three nights that One Direction will be performing to a sold-out crowd at the iconic Pasadena, Calif. stadium.
