One Direction is having one of the best years ever, so how could it get any better? How about performing at the Olympics!

One direction will reportedly be singing their smash hit “What Makes You Beautiful” along with a thousand flash mob dancers who will perform a spectacular routine. A source told the Daily Star Sunday: “The main theme of the Olympic closing ­ceremony will be celebrating the best of British music, so it’s only right that One Direction are opening the show. They are the UK’s biggest music ­export at the moment behind Adele, who is also ­rumoured to be involved in some way. It’s all top secret and the boys aren’t allowed to talk about it but they are thrilled. It isn’t every day you get the instant exposure of performing in front of a billion people.”

Robbie Williams, Take That, The Who, George Michael, and Emeli Sandé are also slated to perform.

We just have to say congratulations to One Direction! This is huge for them.
