We're giving away a set of One Direction dolls - signed by Louis, Harry, Zayn, Liam & Niall! - to celebrate 1D's 2012 success & Billboard cover story.
To say One Direction had a massive year would be quite an understatement. The guys kicked off 2012 already big in the U.K. but not well known in the U.S., and in the space of one calendar year this boy band juggernaut has seen its first two albums hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200, they've headlined Madison Square Garden, and as Billboard's Top New Artist of 2012  have graced the cover of our year-end issue.
At this point millions worldwide want whatever they can get of 1D, but Billboard.com has a super special One Direction New Year's present personally from the guys for one lucky fan: we're giving away a full set of signed One Direction dolls!
