Last Saturday, 700,000 One Direction fans worldwide saw 1D Day, a seven-hour live-streaming show revolving around the popular UK boy band.

But local fan Tiffany De Conceicao was one of the few who managed to get up close to her idols virtually during the broadcast from Los Angeles - and earn her 15 seconds of fame.

During one of the segments, fans from different countries were given the opportunity to ask the quintet a question related to the fans' countries.

Tiffany, an 18-year-old biotechnology student at Temasek Polytechnic, was selected to represent Singapore and posed the boys a question via video chat.

The true-or-false question she was cued to read out live, which was prepared by One Direction's local record label Sony Music Singapore, was whether there is a road in Singapore named after band member Harry Styles.

Fellow band member Liam Payne answered correctly with "false".

For the correct answer, the boys got to enjoy a Singapore dish - Hainanese chicken rice.

Had they answered wrongly, they would have to feast on Marmite-coated chocolate.

The video call was made from the Sony Music Singapore office in Tiong Bahru at 9.10am on Sunday. The 1D Day live stream was aired from 3am to 10am Singapore time.

Tiffany said of her mother, who drove her to the studio: "She was in the room with me and she was more excited than I was.
