Zayn Malik said in a statement: "Having come from the UK X Factor, we can't wait to perform on the US stage ­– it's going to be a great night!"

Niall Horan added: "We're really excited to be on the American X Factor. It'll be the first time we've performed in front of 'Uncle Si' since we were on the UK X Factor. So, hopefully, we'll make him proud!"



One Direction finished third on The X Factor in the UK during its 2010 series, and have gone on to achieve global success. They were mentored by Simon Cowell on the show.

The band's advert with NFL star Drew Brees for Pepsi - in which he becomes the 'sixth member' of the group - has been broadcast in heavy rotation during the second season of The X Factor on Fox.

The X Factor USA airs this Wednesday and Thursday at 8/7c on Fox.

Take Me Home by One Direction is released on Monday, November 12.
