There are two types of people in this world: Those who love One Direction, and those who are liars. And for those of us who are proud about our British boy band love, music-based award shows offer the unique opportunity to see 1D don their finest skinny pants and blazers and entertain us with their cute, blasé attitudes about silly American Hollywood events. Remember that time Harry Styles was casually snacking on an orange during the VMAs? And with music's biggest night — aka the 2015 Grammys — right around the corner, it'd seem like it's time to gear up to see the boys take on their next award show. But, sadly dear readers, this year it just wasn't meant to be: One Direction will not be at the Grammys, so don't get your hopes up about seeing everyone's favorite boy band crush on the red carpet this Sunday. And the good news? Their Australian fans are pretty happy about it.
Why? Because while the Grammys are happening in the US, One Direction will be on the second night of their On The Road Again Tour, performing in Sydney for their fans down under. I know, I know. It doesn't seem fair that Australians should get to have adorable actions and be blessed by the presence of Harry, Zayn, Niall, Louis, and Liam at the same time, but that's just the way the Tim Tam crumbles. And just in case you're feeling particularly broken up about their absence, never fear — there are a few steps you can take to get over the heartbreak.
Watch the Where We Are Tour DVD
My boyfriend gave me a copy for Christmas, and he's never regretted a purchase so much. Relive the wonderful, overpriced experience that was One Direction's most recent tour, and I promise not to judge you if you sing along and wave around a glow stick like you're actually at the show. Not that I've done that before or anything.
Look at GIFs of Harry Styles
In my experience, this method cures any amount of heartbreak. Whether he's shirtless, melting your heart with a smile, or displaying his particularly awful dance moves, watching Styles in motion over and over again will improve your mood instantly.
Cuddle up with one of these bad boys
Your life — and your napping experience — will never be the same.
Watch the Grammys anyway
Because they're going to be really good. Beyonce's performing. Freakin' Paul McCartney is performing. One Direction who?
