A new wave of Brits are invading the United States! Yes, there’s Adele and One Direction but there’s another pop star from the UK that's building some momentum. Ladies and gentlemen, we introduce to you: Olly Murs!
Hollywire chatted with the charming lad while he was at the Gibson Amphitheater in L.A. opening for One Direction. Olly filled us in one his new album, life after The X Factor, and his secret shower with Will Ferrell. No, seriously. It happened.
Being on tour with One Direction, as you can imagine, can be quite an interesting experience. So what’s the craziest moment from the tour, according to Olly? Of course it involved a mob scene!
“I just walked through [Universal Studios], just minding my own business, coming back here and I got leached by a thousand One Direction fans,” he explained. “It got really dangerous, like I was Justin Bieber.”
Get ready, Olly. It could get to that point when your debut album In Case You Didn’t Know drops in the U.S. on September 25th! Until then, make sure to check out his single Heart Skips a Beat featuring Chiddy Bang!
Do you think Olly could surpass One Direction fame in the U.S.?
