Choreographed dance had been a boy band staple until One Direction hit the scene. Liam Payne explained why performing dances would be a bad idea for the group when he dropped in on Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson's Dancing With the Stars rehearsal.
"I'm so happy we don't have to dance, because we've seen -- with the boy bands -- the rehearsals you have to do and we can barely go in and sing a song without doing something stupid," Liam said.
Despite being a little rusty, Liam indulged Sadie in doing the Quack Attack dance with her, thus being initiated into the Quack Pack - a name affectionately bestowed upon their fans.
"I'm officially in the Quack Pack!" he said.
This meeting was a long time coming for Liam and Sadie, as Liam visited her family in September when he was on a 1D world tour. During his visit, Liam shot clay pigeons with Sadie's dad, Willie, and her uncle, Si. Sadie was already filming DWTS at the time and was jealous that she couldn't be home in Louisiana for the visit.
Since One Direction was rehearsing for the American Music Awards right next door to where Sadie and pro partner Mark Ballas were rehearsing, Liam decided to take the opportunity to surprise Sadie.
Hopefully the meeting will be the good luck charm Sadie needs to compete tonight in the first of the two-part DWTS finale, airing at 8 p.m. on ABC.
