One Direction heartthrobs Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik were spotted arriving at the 2013 BRIT Awards at London’s O2 Arena on Wednesday night (February 20). The “Live While We Are Young” crooners looked in good spirits, posing for cameras before heading inside to prepare for the exciting evening ahead. One Direction were nominated for Best British Group alongside Alt-J, Mumford & Sons, Muse, and The xx. However, the “Kiss You” singers were finally presented by Robbie Williams for the first ever BRITs Global Success prize, beating out Adele and Mumford & Sons to pick up the trophy. “This really is absolutely mind-blowing,” Louis Tomlinson said when the guys accepted the award. “Thank you to our incredible fans who’ve been unbelievable for us.” Apart from winning the prize, British boyband One Direction hit the stage at the big event to perform their charitable single “One Way Or Another” earlier in the night. Other stars also gracing the stage and performing at Britain’s leading music awards included Robbie Williams, Emeli Sande, Muse, Mumford & Sons, Ben Howard and Harry Styles’ ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift.
