Niall Horan from One Direction was on the phone with Dylan of Mix 107.9 in Salt Lake City, Utah recently, where he talked about their ‘Today’ show appearance, upcoming television appearances, being wanted by so many girls, what Simon Cowell is like and trying to get everywhere while on tour.
On doing ‘Today’:
It was amazing. The ‘Today’ show is a very, very big deal for us. We had some sleepless nights a couple of days before it. It was amazing.
What it feels like to have every girl want the band:
It’s crazy. I don’t know where it’s come out of. They’ve just gotten a liking to us, and I think it’s because we’re like those guys from next door. We’re just regular kids doing what we’ve always wanted to do. Just having a laugh with it as well. Just having a good time.
On working with Simon Cowell:
It was really cool. Simon is a great guy. We get on very well with him and we call him Uncle Simon. We have a laugh with him. He’s got a great sense of humor, a very dry wit humor.
On visiting specific cities on tour, including SLC:
Hopefully we can get back. Our fans want us to come everywhere. It’s just trying to find, we really have to get to all these places at some stage, but we’re just trying to find a time to get to everywhere.
