One Direction - Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson - were discovered on the U.K.'s "The X Factor" in 2010. The band quickly gained a following to become one of the competition's all-time most popular acts, finishing in the final three and garnering a gigantic and loyal fanbase along the way. In March 2012, One Direction's debut album, "Up All Night," made U.S. history, as it was the first time a U.K. group's debut album entered the U.S. Billboard 200 chart at No. 1. The band has sold over 12 million records worldwide. In November, One Direction released its sophomore album, "Take Me Home," which includes the No. 1 single, "Live While We're Young."

Pitbull has risen to become a global superstar as both a recording and performing artist. The Miami native recently added to a long and growing list of hits with his first No. 1, "Give Me Everything." At the same time, his world tour sold out concerts in Latin America, Canada and Europe, before bringing the party to the United States, Japan and Australia. Pitbull's new single, "Don't Stop The Party," is gaining heavy momentum on the radio and video charts and is featured on his new album, "Global Warming." It's the highly anticipated follow-up to "Planet Pit," which earned critical acclaim and enjoyed massive commercial success with sales of more than 1.4 million albums and 18 million singles. "Don't Stop The Party" comes on the heels of Pitbull's two million-selling single, "Back In Time," the chart-topping anthem from the action-adventure-comedy "Men In Black 3."
