One Direction SNL Ready To Run


One Direction sang “Ready To Run” for its second performance on this week’s “SNL” (video below). The band first sang “Night Changes.” Like “Night Changes,” “Ready To Run” is off the group’s newest album FOUR, which was released on November 17 and quickly entered the Billboard Top 200 chart. This marks the first time “One Direction” has performed “Ready To Run” live on TV.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, this is the third appearance on “SNL” for One Direction, having been the musical guest when Sofia Vergara hosted the show back in 2012 and then again in 2013 with host Paul Rudd. In addition to performing songs, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Zayn Malik also acted in a few sketches back then and again this weekend.

Haven’t had enough of One Direction? Well, the band is back on NBC on primetime this coming Tuesday, with their first-ever U.S. TV special. Simply titled, “One Direction: The TV Special,” the one-hour show is slated to air at 8 p.m. EST. It was filmed last month when the band was at the Universal Studios in Orlando.
