One Direction and Pitbull livened up the 'X Factor USA' grand finale on Thursday (December 20) with live and energetic performances of their latest singles...Watch videos below!
The British boyband performed for the first time on American television their brand new single "Kiss You", from the album "Take Me Home". The fun and upbeat record becomes the follow-up to the ballad "Little Things", which unfortunately didn't the become the worldwide smash Syco execs were probably expecting. Zayn and Co. started their 'X Factor USA' performance on top a LIPS-shaped platform and then descended to the stage to finish the song around their screaming fans.
Pitbull also took the 'X Factor USA' grand finale stage to treat FOX viewers with a new vibrant performance of his hit single "Don't Stop The Party", included on the album "Global Warming". The performance was visually very engaging and those 'are you having a good time?' bits are always such a HYPE! However, rumor has it Pitbull and his record label wanted the rapper to perform the next confirmed single, "Feel This Moment", on Thursday night instead. The problem? That that song features Christina Aguilera on the. very important, chorus, and it appears Xtina wasn't up to appear on 'X Factor', considering she JUST finished 'The Voice' on the rival network, NBC, and that she would performing in front of Britney Spears.
