If you are awake, Singapore, One Direction will be live at 3am Singapore time (7pm GMT) to launch The You Generation, a brand-new reality talent competition engineered by Simon Cowell, to find the next global talent superstar. The You Generation will be held via YouTube — that is, participants will audition via YouTube and can apply from all around the world (yes, even Singaporeans can apply!) Tweet about this with #1DYouGeneration and don’t forget to drop us a comment below or on Twitter to let us know what you think of the contest. (Or, if you just want to take the boys home.)
