Move over Justin Bieber, Canada have five brand new teen heartthrobs to go crazy for!

One Direction wowed America and are having the same effect on the ladies of Canada! Their Much Music performance saw over 2,000 Directioners (that's the new affectionate term for true 1D fans, for those not in the know!) showed up.

And, to ensure that the masses were safe, officials were forced to shut down the entire street! According to Much Music, One Direction’s appearance led to over 17,000 One Direction fans phoning with ticket requests; that's the most ticket requests in Much Music history!

And, with one girl fainting, another tossing her bra at the stage and hundreds breaking down into ecstatic sobs, it seems as if the boys are definitely going down a treat over the pond.

Band member Niall took to Twitter to express his feelings on the public reaction to One Direction:

"Omg, @muchmusic was crazzzzzyy, the maddest its been, sorry we couldn't stay longer, it was just soo crazy, thanks for having us!"
