Check Out Harry Styles And Zayn Malik Getting Ready As One Direction Rehearse For The VMAs (PHOTO)

One Direction’s Harry Styles and Zayn Malik strike a pose as they prep for their upcoming VMA performance.

Red Alert, all DIRECTIONERS! The 2012 MTV VMAs are only mere hours away, which basically means that One Direction is the only thing we want to talk about right now. We’ve already shown you some incredible 1D-themed GIFs in honor of the boys’ VMA promo video, nearly lost our cool when we listened to them chat about their first time, and now we’re having full-blown heart palpitations over the first batch of slo-mo promo videos as well as the second batch. Yes, THERE ARE TWO BATCHES. We know. You’re welcome.

Re-watch One Direction’s dreamy slo-mo promo videos after the jump.

And that’s not all that we’re gifting you with today! In preparation for their big gig, the two-time VMA nominees have kicked off rehearsals by tweeting this stunning photo of Harry and Zayn along with the caption “Started rehearsing for VMAs! Hope you all like the performance! x.” Um, not to be rude or anything, but DUH we’re gonna like the performance. In fact, wanna know what else we’re gonna like? One Direction’s new single, “Live While We’re Young,” and their new album, Take Me Home. Any chance of a true 1D Stan could get an advance promo copy? Maybe? ::Raises hand::
