Watch them cover Valerie and Torn

It's easy to forget that One Direction are of X Factor stock who began their career singing live covers in front of millions week after week. We know them now for their own amazing songs like One Thing and the BRIT Award winning What Makes You Beautiful.

However, being cover veterans, the guys can put their take on any tune, as the below video demonstrates.

Here we see them covering the late Amy Winehouse's track Valerie and then smoothly linking it into their version of Natalie Imbruglia's Torn.

Louis takes the lead for Valerie to the delight of the crowd and the whole group join in to sing Torn. We're loving the camping theme complete with a classic VW campervan and log fire. Niall's guitar playing is also pretty special.

The video was filmed during One Direction's Up All Night Tour at Plymouth Pavilions on Thursday 5 January 2012. Were you there? We'd love to find out what you thought of the gig. Let us know by commenting below.
