One Direction, Booster Club

The British boy band's shot in the arm for young women

Monday morning, the group performed on Today, filling Rockefeller Plaza after a weekend of suburban CD signings. The performance of "Beautiful" wasn't by any means perfect; those familiar with Cowell's notoriously sour reactions could have probably envisioned the face he made when the boys tried to hit some of the lower-register notes. (No charges of sweetened vocals here.) But watching individual members of the audience sing along, their mouths turned upward, it was possible to see awkward phases be not entirely shed, but at least forgotten about for a couple of minutes—an appeal that, sadly, too few of the people ridiculing haircuts and baby faces are ready to grant as not just valid, but necessary for girls on the cusp of womanhood.
