Simon Cowell ‘Too Excited To Sleep’ Over One Direction Success

One Direction have revealed that Simon Cowell is too excited to sleep over their recent success in the USA.

Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan are expected to chart at the top of the Billboard album charts this week with their debut LP Up All Night, and have already scored the highest debut for a British band in US chart history with ‘What Makes You Beautiful’.

Louis told the Daily Mirror: “He’s really, really excited about the reaction we’ve had out here and has said he’s not sleeping properly because he keeps thinking about us and how it’s going. He’s far too excited to sleep. Which is quite cool.”

Liam added: “Our tour manager told us it would take three years of hard graft to do well in America. So for it to have taken off as it has is incredible.

“Twitter has been a major factor in getting our name out there in the States. Just as Twitter followers have gone up, so we have, too.”

Fellow boyband The Wanted have also been riding high across the pond, and have been engaging in a spot of friendly rivalry with 1D.
