The boy band - made up of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne - have been invited by President Barack Obama to perform at his home as a "thank you" to his two daughters, Malia, 14, and 11-year-old Sasha, for the help they gave him on his successful election campaign.


The girls are huge fans of the 'One Thing' hitmakers and Obama and his wife Michelle have been in touch with them to arrange a date.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "It's an open invitation for a date to be ­arranged that fits in with everyone's busy schedules.

"It's not every parent who can invite the hottest band in the world to their home. They will be the envy of girls across the world."

Michelle had originally invited them to the White House earlier this year, but the boys were unable to make it because of their hectic schedule.

Obama was voted in as president for a second term on Tuesday (06.11.12) after defeating Mitt Romney.
