It was a big night for the boy band on Wednesday, when the heartthrobs attended the BRIT Awards.
After performing their new single "One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)" to benefit Comic Relief – a new version of Blondie's hit song – Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Liam Payne made history when they were awarded with the BRIT Awards' first ever global success prize.
Once the Awards finished, the group celebrated alongside SYCO label boss Simon Cowell at Sony's after-party at the Arts Club in London, where they spent the night relaxing and chatting with friends.
While The X Factor judge held court with a group of blondes near the bar after midnight, Styles – who took his mom as his date – jumped on a couch to dance and take photos. Meanwhile, Tomlinson only had eyes for girlfriend Eleanor Calder, who arrived at the soiree later in the evening.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel also made an appearance – showing up just before 3 a.m. after Timberlake's BRITs performance and private concert.
Just hours after saying goodnight, One Direction released the music video for "One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)," which the band filmed themselves while on tour, visiting Africa and in the United Kingdom, where they got British Prime Minister David Cameron to make a cameo.
