One Direction

X Factor stars One Direction have reportedly been invited to the White House after meeting the President's wife Michelle Obama!

The group - made up of Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik - have been in conquering the US for the past three months and it seems they've finally made it to the top.

The boys had a chance encounter with the first lady backstage at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards in LA this week, The Sun reports today.

"She invited them to the White House for their annual Easter egg hunt on Easter Monday. It was such an honour," a source told the newspaper.

However One Direction weren't able to accept the invite, snubbing the President and his wife!

"They'd love to go another time," the source added.

One Direction will kick off a tour of the US in May, before moving on to Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

They'll be back in the UK in 2013 for a sold-out arena tour.
