Taylor Swift, One Direction, 5SOS: The 5 best Fan Projects of all time

We love seeing fans getting together and supporting their idols in creative ways and here’s a list to prove it. From One Direction flashmobs to Taylor Swift video edits, here’s our favourite times you lot blew our minds with Fan Projects.

One Direction
During the Where We Are tour, One Direction fans organised flashmobs around the world where they danced to the song ‘Midnight Memories’. These amazing moments were filmed by fans and uploaded to YouTube, including this one is Sydney which has had over 2 million views.

5 Seconds of Summer
5SOS organised a huge meetup for their fans around the world called Derp Con in 2014. The main Derp Con was in Los Angeles, where the band performed an intimate live show. At the same time, fans got together in the UK, Japan, Brazil and more, and joined in with the fun online.

Selena Gomez
When Selena Gomez came to London’s Hammersmith Apollo as part of her Stars Dance tour in 2013. Fans arranged a special treat for Selena to show how much they love her and appreciate the message of her hit single ‘Who Says’. While she performed the song, they held up signs reading “I’m just beautiful me” and other messages. They promoted the fan project online using sites like Tumblr.

Justin Bieber
When Justin Bieber visited Paris on his Believe tour, his French fans wanted to make sure he felt welcome, and they did it in a truly French way. They held up signs saying “Merci” which is “Thank you” in French. A huge number of people in the audience took part, creating a really special, memorable moment.

Taylor Swift
A Taylor Swift superfan put together an amazing video in 2013, when she decided to visit 13 cities to perform Taylor’s poptastic tunes and share them with people around Europe. After the video got lots of views on YouTube, Nadia finally managed to meet her idol a few months later at the Red tour in Berlin.

Feeling inspired to start a Fan Project for your favourite artist? Here are our top tips on how to put it into action.

It’s looking good for Selly G and Anton Zaslavski (we think we’ll stick to calling him Zedd), if Zedd can be patient with Selena’s work commitments then this relationship could last way longer than Selena’s last relationship with Justin Bieber.

Demi, Miley, Selena: Which would Nick Jonas kiss, marry and leave?

Nick Jonas, tread carefully. Very carefully.

A game of ‘kiss, marry, kill’ could be dangerous when you’re forced to choose between three hot ex-Disney popstars: Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez. Don’t say Whoopi never warned you.

With that said, the hunky Jonas bro boldly went there when he was quizzed on Capital FM. So who would he assign for “lips, wife or leave”?
