One Direction has been making waves in the music industry lately, and they proved themselves as a group that is here to stay at tonight's Billboard Music Awards. The band managed to win several awards at the show, including Top Duo/Group and Top New Artist.
They beat out Carly Rae Jepsen, Gotye, PSY, and the Lumineers for the Top New Artist and they beat out Coldplay, fun, Maroon 5, and Mumford & Sons for Top Duo/Group. One Direction also won Top Pop Artist, which is quite a feat for a band that didn't even exist four years ago.
One Direction also recently announced their 'Where We Are' stadium tour, and for thanking their fans for making the tour possible, the band members made a thank you video. They said, "Hi guys! We just wanted to send you a quick message to say thank you. We have just announced our stadium tour and we cannot believe it. We've been together for about three years and it's all down to you guys that we are able to do this so thank you so, so much. We can't wait to see you guys all over the world so thank you very much!"
One Direction is continuing to build their brand across the world, and they've become a force to reckon with, especially with the fan base that they've manage to build. One Direction's 'This Is Us' 3D film will be releasing on August 30th, 2013.
