In 2012, it debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200, making One Direction the first UK group in U.S. chart history to debut at number one with their first album. Up All Night spawned the Official UK Singles Chart top ten singles — "What Makes You Beautiful", "Gotta Be You", and "One Thing". In 2012, "What Makes You Beautiful" won the BRIT Award for Best British Single. One Direction supported the album with their Up All Night Tour. They have started recording their second studio album, due for release in late 2012.

LMFM Says: 
These guys are living the dream. It is as simple as that. Five teenagers who jumped into The X Factor machine as aspiring solo artists, only to marry together as a group and end up making decent in roads in the competition. The result? Only a US Number one single!! Unbelievable scenes for a band so young. Do they deserve it? We think so. Fly that flag boys!!
