Having a crush as a tween girl is sort of like being addicted to drugs: only the object of your affection will satiate you and being around it can induce exhilaration and hysteria. The young ladies who filled up a sold-out Comerica Theatre for One Direction last night were a crazed group, looking to get their fix of five guys who've inspired obsession and longing for about a year now in the States.

It didn't take much for One Direction to please the crowd enough to throw underwear on stage. They didn't have to dance, they didn't have to play instruments, and they could even tell the fans they were sweaty and smelled bad (blame the throngs for standing in the heat all day before the show) -- the shrieking audience continued to scream with delight every time a member merely did as much as move.
