One Direction

It seems like it’s only just started, but the Olympics finished this evening, and X Factor stars One Direction are took part in the closing celebrations.

Today saw the final day of sport, with a huge closing ceremony performance planned for the evening.

The show featured a range of Britain’s top musical stars from across the decades, with Madness, the Pet Shop Boys, George Michael and The Who performing.

With only one number album, One Direction are still very new to the business, but their huge success over the past year saw them also invited to take part.

“It’s all hush-hush and the boys have been sworn to secrecy,” a source told the Daily Mirror this week. “But they’ve been at rehearsals and can’t wait to do their bit. It will be an unforgettable occasion and they feel privileged to be a part of it.”

And while we were quite excited for the boys, we were even more excited for the Spice Girls, who reunited to sing Spice Up Your Life at the concert.

X Factor judge Gary Barlow is also set to appear on stage, singing with his Take That bandmates.
