Lads are a huge hit across the pond

One Direction have bagged a gig at Nickleodeon‘s Kids’ Choice Awards.

The band – who are currently on tour with US group Big Time Rush – have been asked to perform their debut single at the annual LA event on 31 March.

And we’re not the only ones to be excited by this – the ceremony’s producer can’t wait to see the lads up on the stage.

One Direction are performing on the Kids’ Choice Awards for the first time and it’s going to be scream-worthy,’ says Paula Kaplan.

We reckon the news must have come as a shock to curly-haired Harry Styles, 18, who recently said finding fame Stateside will be a struggle.

‘America is a massive place and it’s going to be hard. Nothing is gonna come easy,’ he said.

‘A lot of people have tried and failed but we want to break the mould and see what we can do.’

We never doubted you, boys. We knew you’d do it!
