One Direction get invite to the White House

Monday April 2, 2012

It's the ultimate seal of approval in the US.

There can be, no doubt, former X Factor contestants One Direction have made it across the Pond, after they were invited to the White House.

Michelle Obama apparently asked the boys along to her and Barack's annual Easter Egg hunt when she met them backstage at the Kids' Choice Awards.

According to the Sun newspaper, the first lady was "charmed" by the band – made up of Louis Tomlinson, 20, Zayn Malik, 19, Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne, all 18.

Harry even made Michelle laugh by asking how they get pizza delivered to the president's residence.

She told the youngster they have to make their own.

Unfortunately, the boy band couldn't accept Michelle's invitation because they have other commitments in Australia.

But according to an insider: "They'd love to go another time."
