One Direction have performed their latest single 'Best Song Ever' on America's Got Talent.

The group took to the stage at New York's Radio City Music Hall during Wednesday's (August 28) semi-final results show in a prerecorded segment.

Host Nick Cannon asked the group about their behind-the-scenes movie This Is Us.
