Liam Payne and Niall Horan had One Direction fans tuning in to ‘One World: Together at Home’ on Saturday, as they both during the first two hours of the event.

During their performances, both Liam and Niall took time to thank frontline workers for their heroic efforts.

Liam said, “I really feel, at the moment, we’re all being brought a lot closer together by this solidarity that we have to feel right now.”

While Niall shared, “Thank you so much to anyone out there working in an essential service, whether it be a doctor, a nurse, a grocery store worker, teacher, anyone working in an essential service.  You are doing an unbelievable job and we thank you for your service so much.  You were already doing a great job anyway, but you’ve really stepped up to the plate on another level.”

Liam shared the screen with previous collaborator Rita Ora and together, they sang ‘For You.’



Other U.K. performances include Jessie J, who sang ‘Bang Bang’ and ‘Flashlight’ and Ellie Goulding, who belted out her massive hit, ‘Love Me Like You Do.’
