Who Will Win: “What Makes You Beautiful” by One Direction; directed by John Urbano
We don’t care that they’re British. We don’t care that they were created on The X Factor. We only care about all the fan girls screaming after five young boys serenading people on the beach. Let’s hope that Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” doesn’t snag the award.
