One Direction: The TV Special aired on NBC last night to soft ratings. According to TVByTheNumbers, the show earned a 0.7/2 rating in the demo with 3.13M viewers tuning in. Eh. A special airing two days before Christmas is probably not going to attract eyeballs beyond the diehard fans.
In any case, the special featured the boys at Universal Studios in Orlando meeting fans, romping around, singing. The usual. I did record it just in case there was something new. And there was! Here’s a brand new song, never before sung live. It’s titled “Girl Almighty” and is from the quintet’s new album, Four.
Erm. I kinda like this song. It reminds me of the power pop I loved back in the 80’s and 90’s. Three minute pop songs featuring appealing guitar riffs and awesome melodies are kind of my thing. The A&R people who choose songs for One Direction? I hope they are being paid well.
