The 'What Makes You Beautiful' stars gave two live performances on the popular US talent show.

One Direction wowed America on the The X Factor USA last night with two live performances of their latest singles.

The 'One Thing' singers took to the stage on last night's live show (8th November) where they started with a performance of recent Vodafone big Top 40 hit 'Live While We're Young'.

Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne performed on top of a stage designed like a number of red London phone boxes before heading down to the front of the stage to get up close and personal with the studio audience.

Later on in the show One Direction then slowed things down with an emotional performance of their new single 'Little Things', fresh from launching the single's music video last week.

"Thanks to @TheXFactorUSA for having us," Harry tweeted after the show on Thursday night. "It was great to meet the contestants."

This month the 'What Makes You Beautiful' singers became the first all-male cover stars of Cosmopolitan UK in the magazine's 40 year history.

One Direction will launch new album 'Take Me Home' this coming Monday 12th November.
