Why can't Today use their platform to showcase lesser known artists? Are the scared of rating drops? I hear these artists above everyday on the radio, I don't want to listen to the same songs over and over. But I guess it's all about that $$$, right?
May 8, 2014, 6:06.50 am ET
Why don't you have one direction or 5 seconds of summer

5 Seconds of Summer
5 Seconds of Summer are 4 hard working lads that came along way to make music and to please their fans. Their EP came to #1 on Itunes for most pre ordered. I think that the Today Show crew would be surprised by how many people would come to see the lads. I also think that it would mean the world to many fans,of theirs, to be able to see them on such a successful news channel. The boys have come a long way, and they would be honored to perform on the Today Show.
March 11, 2014, 6:12.57 pm ET
One Direction again! I went to see them and was stuck on the side of the stage ALL THREE TIMES! It would mean the world to be in front of them and just see them and tell them how much i love them and how much of and inspiration they are to me! And if they were there with 5SOS it would be amazing i hope you see this! It would mean so much to get to be in front of them and just admire them i love them! #directionerforever
March 10, 2014, 8:45.53 pm ET
5 Seconds Of Summer
