One Direction Win Three Moonmen!
The 1D boys storm the MTV VMA 2012…
One Direction's first ever appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards has seen them bag a trio of awards.
The boys' video for What Makes You Beautiful bagged them Moonmen for Best Pop Video, Most Share-Worthy Video and Best New Artist.
Accepting the award for Best Pop Video (and a kiss each!) from previous winner Katy Perry, the boys had this to say:
"Wow, thank you very much Katy. Thanks for the kiss. Thank you so much. We've grown up watching this show. And to even be here is an honour and to collect one of these is absolutely incredible.
"Straightaway we would like to thank the most important people: our fans who have followed us through our two year rollercoaster journey and have helped us win this award for Best Pop Video. So thank you," Niall Horan said. "This one's for you guys."
"I just want to say we've had this award for two seconds and already we broke it so there's a good start," Liam Payne joked. "It's amazing to be here. I also want to say a massive thank you to our team backstage."
Louis Tomlinson wrapped up their speech, adding, "Just a few more thank you's. We want to thank Simon Cowell and everyone at Syco. Our incredible label, Columbia. And of course [Columbia executive] Steve Barnett for believing in us from the start. This one's for the fans."
