Cue the OMFG #DYING REBLOG!1!!! hysteria from Harmonizers and Directioners alike.
They’ve already snatched many a wig with their cover of Lana Del Rey‘s “American” a few weeks ago. Before that, it was Frank Ocean‘s “Thinkin ‘Bout You.” And most recently, they delivered a killer rendition of Ed Sheeran‘s “Lego House.”
Now, X Factor USA‘s reigning girl group Fifth Harmony has gone straight for their teenybopper base’s Achilles’ heel: A One Direction cover.
I’ll be honest: I’ve never been able to hop aboard the 1D train.
While I’ve always been proud of the boys for their explosion onto the global pop market following their run on the star-packed seventh season of X Factor UK, I’ve just never really bought into the whole ‘thing.’ The music’s catchy, the boys are pretty, but…it’s all too squeaky-clean J-14 for me! It makes me uncomfortable to feign any sort of fanaticism for barely pubescent boys making decent(-ish) pop music. As far as quality, I’ve always preferred the music catalog of my good ol’, slightly more gruff UK lads, The Wanted. (I eagerly await your death threats, Directioners.)
But it’s impossible to avoid a One Direction-sized blip on the pop culture radar, so here we are with the feverishly anticipated video for “Kiss You,” one of the punchiest cuts from their all-around alright (and slightly sexier) 2012 follow-up, Take Me Home.
THIS IS IT, as one of the X Factor judges
famously sang 17 years ago (oh my God, 17 years?!): The STAR-STUDDED X Factor final show is finally upon us!
And thank God, because I’m totally over it.
We’re almost there! It’s the semi-finals of X Factor. Five acts remain–four will go on to the grand finale!
And now, we’re down to all four of MuuMuse’s favorites from the very beginning: Cher Lloyd, Rebecca Ferguson, Matt Cardle, and Mary Byrnes. Oh, and One Direction’s still going strong. THANKS A LOT, TEENS.
Tonight’s show has two themes: CLUB CLASSICS (perfect for MuuMuse!) and GET ME TO THE FINALS (desperation!).
And awayyyyy we go!
It was “Rock Week” on X Factor tonight. FUCK YEAHHHH! Oh manâ€”whatâ€™s going to happen?! Will Dannii rock a mohawk?! Will Cheryl Cole light her nipples on fire?! Will Katie Weasel not be impossibly grating?
No, none of that happened.
