One Direction made an appearance on The Late Late Show last night, where they participated in a game of dodgeball with fellow UK export James Corden, who co-wrote their “Best Song Ever” video. This was the group’s first televised appearance without Zayn Malik, who announced that he needed to leave One Direction in order to have space to be a “normal 22-year-old,” a sentiment that made Noel Gallagher cackle. Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan joined Corden for a brief interview, during which they discussed Malik’s departure, and Tomlinson was asked about snide remarks he made on Twitter following the announcement. Watch the interview and dodgeball sketch below.
Note that they didn’t sing! Maybe they haven’t worked out their new arrangements yet? They have a gig coming up on 6/5, so they’d better get on it.
