One Direction performed at BBC Radio 1's intimate Live Lounge on Thursday (Nov. 12) in advance of the band's release of its new album, Made in the A.M., delivering a set that mixed new songs, old favorites and covers -- including one of particular significance.

The more than 20 minute set included a cover of Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney's "FourFiveSeconds," and closed with Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn," which the band noted it had probably not performed since on the The X Factor together when they formed in 2010. 

Billboard Greatest of All Time

Introducing "FourFiveSeconds," Niall Horan said, "This is a cover that we picked up, we wanted to do it because it's a good song, it's been a big song this year, so we wanted to do our little version of it."
