What's better than seeing One Direction? Seeing double – as in two sets of the heartthrob 5-some!
Madam Tussauds in London opened it's 1D exhibit Thursday to eagerly awaiting fans, but Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan all got to "meet" their life-size wax counterparts secretly prior. Can you tell the real boybander from the wax counterpart?
