This has been a busy week for our 1D lads, with performances, concerts, videos and announcements galore! So we’re going to get right to it for the 1D Chronicles for this week!
Mr Styles has been busy this week, announcing upcoming appearances and performances on not only the Aria Awards November 28th, and the X Factor live shows Saturday November 11, but it has also been released that Harry will be performing along side Lorde and many others to honor Fleetwood Mac at this years Grammy awards. This is a huge honor for any artist to be asked to perform at what is inarguably the biggest night in music, so we can’t wait to see Harry take the stage.
But probably the biggest Harry related news for this week is the release of his video for his next single, the fan favorite, Kiwi. Featuring children, some dressed in a few of his most ‘iconic’ outfits, having what can only be described as every childs dream food fight with cupcakes, before Harry enters and unleashes more adorableness with a barrage of puppies, it is like a strange dreamscape of confusion, with a small appearance from Styles. While some fans sing its praises, making far reaching connections to how it could possibly tie in to the song itself, others (myself included) are left wondering what the hell we just watched. Now, I am a huge Harry fan, and admirer of his talent, his nature, and his true, genuinely good heart. But, alas, I am definitely not a fan of this video. *prepares for the cupcakes to be thrown in my direction*
To each their own, I suppose.
Nialler is another lad who has had a rather good week. Following up a week which saw his solo debut, Flicker, reach number one, Nialler reminds us that he is just as sexy as he is talented as he signs with modelling agency Wilhemina Models. Wilhemina is one of the biggest and most prestigious agencies for anyone to join, so this is definitely a big deal as Horan makes a bit of a crossover. Now, as I Niall girl, I am completely chuffed at his turn of events and have had more than a few visions of him walking down the catwalk in my head. So congrats Nialler on yet another milestone.
In terms of his music career, Niall recently took the stage with opening act Marren Morris at the CMA awards November 8th, and is slated to perform at the upcoming American Music Awards. It seems 1D is taking the stage by storm all over again in 2018.
Liam Payne. Jason DeRulo. Rap Battle.
Yup. You read that right. Our very own Payno faced off against Jason DeRulo in a rather amusing rap battle that brought out cartoon voices and Anchorman references. But DeRulo left nothing off limits as he includes mentions of Cheryl and Bear in his battles.

If you’re like me, you probably noticed your Twitter light up with squees and chats for our favorite sass master out of the blue as he wowed the crowd at #Key103 Live on November 9th. Of course, Tommo thrilled everyone in attendance, proving that he is a star in his own right, after weeks of tweets revealing and he and the band had been hard at work preparing for the show. But what surprised fans most, was when he performed a song titled “Just Like You”. It is apparently not slated to be a single, but will be on the album. Lucky fans!
And of course Louis couldnt let a chance to jab at ol’ pal Niall slip by, challenging Horan to a rap battle. What started as a comment on Twitter to Sean and Connor Price on X Factor, turned in to yet another face off between the 1D pair. The two have a solid history of exchanging jabs online to the delight and humor of fans, and this time was no different as Niall assured Tommo that he is a wonderful rapper, to which Tomlinson told him to put his money where his mouth is, and face off in an epic 1D rap battle.
I would totally pay to see that.
Check back next week to see what more the boys have been up to!
