It had only been two days since Louis' mum had tragically passed away but Louis bravely decided to appear in from of millions of people to do what he does best, perform!

The collaboration between the 1D superstar an world famous DJ Steve Aoki is a big step away from the pop vibe of One Direction however fans are already going crazy over it! Louis was quick to tweet his appreciation for all the support Aoki had provided throughout the recording...
