British boy band One Direction is set to perform at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards for the first time and just days before hitting the stage, the lads star in a brand new promo for the annual event. As they walk through a backstage corridor, Niall, Louis, Zayn, Liam and Harry say: “Tonight, we take this stage for the first time. We’re ready. Are you? This is the moment. ”
Of course we’re ready guys!
Speaking to MTV News, Liam Payne revealed, “We’re really looking forward to the VMAs. “It’s quite nerve-racking as well, because obviously there’s been so many historical moments and stuff that have happened at the VMAs.” “Now we want to make a moment ourselves, but who knows?”
He added: “I think performing at the VMAs is such a huge occasion. I think it ranks up there with one of the best performances we’ll do so far.”
One Direction will perform alongside Alicia Keys, Green Day, Taylor Swift and Pink at the Kevin Hart hosted 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, which airs live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday, September 6th at 8.P.M. ET/PT.
