One Direction was the musical guest on a special Christmas edition of Saturday Night Live last night (Dec. 20) and took the late-night talk show by storm with two FOUR cuts. The top-selling pop boy band performed their current radio single "Night Changes" and another album gem "Ready to Run." Actress Amy Adams served as the night's esteemed host.
Upon release this fall, FOUR broke records left and right on the Billboard 200. Shifting 387,000 copies first-week, they became the only boy band in history to have their first four studio albums arrive at the summit of the chart. Despite the milestone, the debut sales week was a steep drop from their previous threshold of 546,000 units for Midnight Memories (2013).
