One Direction's Liam Payne and Niall Horan were among the stars who paid tribute to JLS at their last gig on Sunday night (22.12.13).

The One Direction boys took to Twitter after watching the concert with Marvin's wife Rochelle and their seven-month-old daughter, Alaia-Mai.
Niall tweeted: "Jesus! That was an emotional one last night! tears were flowing all round! congrats to the jls lads. What a career! Love u boys. [sic]"
