Is your teen obsessed with One Direction?

OMG! One Direction is going to be on Saturday Night Live this weekend! Hold everything!

My 13-year-old talks about nothing but this group. She saw them perform live on "The Today Show" a few weeks ago and plans to go to their shows this summer when they come to Florida.

TBH, as the kids would say, or to be honest, I don't see what the big deal is about this British boy band manufactured by Simon Cowell of "American Idol" fame. They competed on "The X Factor" in England and placed third. Their songs are OK, their dancing is mediocre and they don't have much charisma.

I do remember obsessing over pop stars in my early teens, namely David Cassidy and Bobby Sherman. I can relate to the thrill. But take some dancing lessons, guys!
