The 'Live While We're Young' stars are said to have been asked to sing as a thank you to Malia and Sasha.

One Direction have reportedly been extended an "open invitation" to perform at the White House by US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

The newly re-elected Democrat is said to be keen for 'What Makes You Beautiful' stars One Direction to give a special performance in the future, as a thank you to his daughters Malia and Sasha for their support during his presidential campaign.

"It's an open invitation for a date to be arranged that fits in with everyone's busy schedules," a source revealed to the Daily Star. "It's not every parent who can invite the hottest band in the world to their home.

"They will be the envy of girls across the world," they added.
