On Thursday, September 6, the boys of One Direction will hit the stage for their very first "MTV Video Music Awards" performance. For that reason, the network chose them to host a special called "My First Time," which featured footage of other artists giving their inaugural VMA performances.
But it wasn't just a clips show, as it also allowed fans of the boy band to learn more about their favorite imports from across the pond. In one segment, the guys talked about their first celebrity crushes, including the likes of the pink Power Ranger, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) from "Friends."
And while their crushes don't look likely to appear at the VMAs, the boys won't be alone. They'll be joined by fellow performers Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Pink, Demi Lovato, Frank Ocean and Green Day.
It should be a star-studded and memorable event, as it is every years, when the "2012 MTV Video Music Awards" kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday, September 6.
