SO I WENT TO THE ONE DIRECTION CONCERT IN D.C. TONIGHT AND I HAVE A LOT TO SAY ABOUT THAT SO BUCKLE IN
okay, so i will start with the openers, y’all know. those australian boys. SO. i went in with basically no expectations because i honestly didn’t care about those people and could not tell any of them apart. BUT. i was /really/ impressed. like obviously they’re still a little rough but their voices are all very strong and ashton is a great drummer. i went in expecting nothing really but i definitely have to get them props. i jammed and they did a great job, really. SO WHATEVER.
NOW. WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT ONE DIRECTION.
i think what got me the most was that they all really work together on stage. what i noticed a lot was that they are sort of like, drawn to each other when they’re performing? like when louis is singing liam will sort of follow him around and vice versa and they’ll all like sling their arms around each other. it just seems like they’re always in tune of one another and where they are on stage.
they all did SO MUCH so i’ll just go down the list, really.
WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT LOUIS TOMLINSON.
for me personally i thought louis stole the show. he just has this like really commanding presence? it’s hard to explain but even though i was like WHERE’S NIALL my eyes were /always/ drawn to louis. when he’s singing he likes belts out the words to the point where it’s like he is MAKING you listen and look at him. i noticed this the most in rock me. during louis’ parts he was stood in the middle of the stage belting out the lyrics and it was like he fucking owned the place. even when he wasn’t singing he kind of like, has this stalking sort of presence. idk like he’s a really small dude (WITH AN ASS AND THIGHS THAT WON’T QUIT) but his entire presence is like LOOK AT ME. i thought he stole it, truly. what an amazing dude.
also someone gave him a soccer ball near the end of the show and homeboy just about lost his mind. he got sO distracted towards the end but like it was almost over so it really wasn’t a big deal. and he was SO CUTE jogging around stage with his little soccer ball like bless his heart.
AND AND AND he was like so encouraging with his bandmates. like during the twitter questions niall started doing this little twirl thing before answering a question and louis was like laughing at him and then he joined and WELL NOUIS IS REALLY CUTE BUT ALSO JUST LOUIS IS REALLY CUTE and like i didn’t come expecting to be slain in the spirit by him but i was.
AND OH MY FUCK liam pointed out this girl that was dressed up as a pigeon and louis dismissed her SO HARD he was like girl, bye and honestly louis gives me so much life goodbye.
WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT LIAM PAYNE.
liam came to werk on time and ready to be paid overtime. he came out with the snapback, the bandana in his pocket, scruff, and neck veins poppin like lil mama wrote that damn song about them.
I WAS LIKE BOY, PLEASE.
anyway, liam is flawless. his falsetto was on point. like his vocals are so consistently great and i didn’t realize he does so many back up harmonies but liam’s game is so strong. also his lil two step and all the dancing he does is WONDERFUL. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL.
HARRY IDIOT STYLES
WHAT CAN I EVEN SAY. like i knew harry was dumb but i mean. seeing it in person is like a religious experience. he did all this stupid soccer mom dancing and flailed his noodle limbs around but my god if that little shit isn’t endearing like BYE.
also he tries really hard to connect with the crowd. like waving and blowing kisses and pointing out signs. like he really tries to create a good atmosphere for the fans and i’m just so into it.
BUT HE’S SO DUMB.
like during the twitter questions one was tell your best joke and THIS DUDE WAS LIKE
cow goes who?
NO COWS GO MOO
like i’m so finished with him. also during twitter questions someone asked fave food and he said fruits and vegetables like i’m just so done with his entire human spirit.
ALSO during wmyb he came out in rolled up skinnies and old navy five dollar flip flops and after about two minutes he got rid of those and was just pracing around barefoot and if i could i would punch him, i really would.
FIRSTLY, zayn’s speaking voice sounds like mickey mouse and i am so here for his little cute ass everything. zayn is literally the cutest. THAT SAID, he has the weirdest stage presence. like he kind of situates himself out of the way on stage and like in the dimly lit parts so you hear him slaying but you’re like did zayn leave the building?? where is he chirp chirp boost mobile, you know?? so i was a little like :/ but apparently he was mouthing the words to every song and i did see him blowing kisses and waving at people and like he has this really quiet presence. ZAYN IS JUST SO COMPLICATED. THE IMPORTANT THING HERE IS THAT HE CAME TO SING AND SLAY AND MAKE YOU WISH YOU HAD NEVER BEEN BORN.
N I A L L
i don’t really have much to say other then during twitter questions niall said his favorite food at that moment was five guys burgers and if he was a car he’d be an aston martin LIKE GOODBYE NIALL ENOUGH SAID.
ANYWAY niall’s accent in person. WOW. WONDERFUL. GORGEOUS. FANTASTIC. 10/10 WOULD LISTEN AGAIN. his accent is great and he really engages with the crowd and seems really grateful and niall is just a gift tbh goodbye.
AND HE’S SO LITTLE and skinny and i wanna break him in half and eat his legs. and everyone cheered so loud during his solos AS IT SHOULD BE bc y’all better recognize.
in short (HAHA THIS IS SO LONG) but it was a really well done show and everyone showed up at werq on time. completely worth every dollar. the production was great and like the camera panning was fancy and great and the boys have so much chemistry with each other and they put on a WONDERFUL SHOW. also liam mentioned his twitlonger and i cried goodbye.
WHAT A GREAT TIME TO BE QUITE HONEST.
also the girl next to me pushed me into the aisle and we were both flailing and yelling and liam waved at us BYE Y’ALL BYE.
