One Direction on 'Saturday Night Live': 'One Thing' [POLL]
Country singer Martina McBride -- mother to a teenage girl -- tweeted:
According to Emma The Beatles were just on Ed Sullivan for the 1st time. Oh wait. No. That was One Direction on SNL. :)-- Martina McBride (@martinamcbride) April 8, 2012
And she wasn't the only one to invoke a Beatles comparison, though most fans stuck with the expected OMG responses and hashtags like #MadeMyLife.
Washington Post Celebritology columnist Jen Chaney, though, had a different take -- invoking the nadir of "SNL" live performances, Ashlee Simpson's 2005 lip syncing fail.
One Direction just had an Ashlee Simpson moment on #SNL. Fine, more than one.-- Jen Chaney (@chaneyj) April 8, 2012
Though this tweeter pretty much summed up the event's significance:
"@JoeSantagato: That was probably the most viewers SNL had in a while lol. Girls love One Direction." THIS-- Zayn's MIRROR.(@StephLoveICONIC) April 8, 2012
What do you think? How did One Direction do on their first "SNL" appearance?
