One Direction - Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson - caused pandemonium this morning in New York City during their concert on the "Today" show, but Access Hollywood's Michelle Beadle managed to wrangle the five boys from across the pond long enough to chat about one Canadian boy.

The guys told Michelle they were able to take some time off from their whirlwind schedule on Monday and they spent it with a fellow pop star.

"Last night we went to see Justin Bieber," Niall, who the rest of the group says gets the most attention from the girls, said.

"Do you feel competitive with him, or no?" Michelle asked.

"No, we're friends with him," Niall said.

"Does he get more chicks or do you guys get more chicks?" Michelle asked.

According to 1D, their numbers beat Biebs - who is now single after his split with Selena Gomez - when it comes to meeting the ladies.
