One Direction wins 3 awards at MTV Video Music Awards!

One Direction have topped the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) picking up three trophies for What Makes You Beautiful.

The group took home best new artist, best pop video and most share-worthy video.

They also performed their latest song, One Thing, for fans at the ceremony in Los Angeles.

“Congratulations 1D. I’m very proud of you. Celebrate!” -Simon Cowell

“Thank you so much! We have grown up watching this show and to collect one of these [awards] straight away is incredible,” said Niall Horan.

Simon Cowell, the band’s manager tweeted the group saying: “Congratulations 1D. I’m very proud of you. Celebrate!”

One Direction, who got together on the X Factor, became the first UK pop group to debut at number one on the US album chart earlier this year with Up All Night.

More than 10,000 fans are estimated to have turned up to see the stars’ first live TV performance in the US when they appeared on NBC’s Today Show in New York.

They sold 176,000 copies of the album in the US in a week and it topped the digital charts minutes after its release.

British boy band One Direction were the big winners at the MTV video music awards, edging out Rihanna and taking home three prizes to crown their arrival on the US pop scene six months ago.

The five former X Factor contestants beat Justin Bieber and Rihanna for best pop video, and fellow all-boy British outfit The Wanted as best new artists.

They also won the most-shareworthy video award – which was voted on by fans – for their debut hit single, What Makes You Beautiful, and later performed their latest release, One Thing.

“To win one Moonman is amazing, to win two is incredible,” said band member Harry Styles, as the group collected the distinctive silver VMA trophy for best new artists.
