WATCH: One Direction Performs “Night Changes” On SNL (VIDEO)
One Direction performed the song “Night Changes” on this week’s “SNL” (video below). The hit song is the second track off the band’s new album FOUR, which was released on November 17.
This is the third time One Direction has been the musical guest on “SNL.” They first joined Sofia Vergara in 2012, and then returned the following year to perform when Paul Rudd hosted the show.
“Night Changes” was co-written by Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. Styles said in an interview on BBC Radio1 that it’s his favorite song off the album. In the music video for it, the guys all go out on fun dates with women. Styles takes his date ice skating, Liam Payne brings his date to an amusement park, Tomlinson goes off on a romantic ride in the countryside, Zayn Malik take his date out to dinner, and Niall Horan stays in for a night of games by the fireside. The dates, however, go horribly wrong and each of guys ends up alone at the end.
One Direction will be back on NBC, but on primetime, this coming Tuesday with their first-ever TV special. The one-hour show, “One Direction: The TV Special,” will air at 8 p.m. EST and was shot last month at the Universal Studios in Orlando.
