5 Seconds of Summer on 'The Today Show': Witnessing The Power of Youth

FUSE TV - 5 Seconds of Summer on 'The Today Show': Witnessing The Power of Youth

For most bands, getting to play a national morning show like TODAY is a telling sign of sustained success. 5 Seconds of Summer, who performed on the show on Wednesday (Oct. 28), have been there before, almost a year ago to the day. That was when they were still introducing themselves to U.S. audiences; this year, the moment feels much bigger. It's a huge deal for them, now, as a band who've proven themselves to have real staying power. It's an even bigger deal for their young fans, and the dedicated masses showed that no one was going to keep them from enjoying it.

Prior to the scheduled 7:00 AM start time, 5SOS set forth on an epic sound-check, running through hits "She Looks So Perfect" and the Madden Brothers-penned "Amnesia." They work through "She's Kinda Hot" and "Hey Everybody!" the latter causes every older gent in Rockefeller Plaza to namecheck the Duran Duran "Hungry Like the Wolf" influence. It becomes clear that this is going to take a while, and that the crowd is in it for the long haul.
