>> the biggest party of all happened today on our plaza. >> we couldn't get in the building to go to work today. >> there is a group called 5 seconds of summer. usually it is packed. this time it was packed all the way from 50th, 49th street to central park. the kids have been sleeping on the pavement with faces on the sidewalk, some from last week. these are four kids from australia. they scream out their names. by the way, i was walking through the crowd. while i was walking through i saw a girl crying and someone is passing out and doing something. they said 18 girls were treated by medics because they had been out there for so long. two girls -- it'insane. two girls -- we were finding two fans to bring them to the front.
>> they are from montgomery, new york. they are 15 and 16-year-old sisters. they were sisters. take a look. ready and go. >> we are going to walk to the front. let's go. >> hyperventilating. >> they kept saying -- >> you know what is funny about those two? all the young girls were saying we are so happy because they were so happy to be there. >> so we should look at the performance. >> i hadn't heard of them until last week. ♪ i love you standing there in my american apparel underwear ♪ ♪ and i know now that i'm so down ♪ ♪ your lip stick stain is a work of art ♪ ♪ i have your name tattooed in
an arrow heart ♪ ♪ i know now that i'm so down >> they are all adorable. they have the darling australian accent. it turns out the three -- what i like about these guys is they are not just a pretty boy band. they really are a band. they all play instruments. three of the guys were putting up covers of songs on youtube and they found their drummer who is so cute. >> adorable. >> looks like a surfer. found him on facebook. now they are opening for one direction. >> i wonder if they are bigger than one direction. >> they might end up being. never under estimate the power of teenage hormones. that is what that is. >> the little girls were sobbing. i didn't know what was going on. a girl gave me a letter to give to one of them and then she
wants him to tweet when she gets it. it was a lot. people had things to hand to them and gifts. >> we had a song from them. they are going to play on our show, too. we all know kate hudson in a movie called "i wish i was here". she is here. that is all that matters is that she is here. let's talk about our party. we have party favors. we have wine. we are celebrating a 1 year old. we decided we wanted to take a look back at the prince over his first year. let's take a peek. >> it will just be fun. >> oh, my gosh. >> the long gown. >> look at this. he wants everything. >> he is so curious. >> he's curious george.
>> curious george but such a happy baby. >> oh, don't you want to watch like every -- i want to see every photo, every piece of video. >> he has already been on about 100 covers. >> good luck trying to keep him grounded. >> the statement they did release we would like to take this opportunity on george's first birthday to thank everyone over the last year wherever we have met them for their warm and generous good wishes to george. there are rumors that she is pregnant again. we don't know it is true. we will show you party ideas for your child if they are turning 1. >> we don't want george to hog the spot light so we asked for pictures of your baby who share
george's birthday. here they are. presley is 1 today. >> how adorable. >> look at her shirt. i love george. >> elliot and bennett hardin. >> and by the way, throughout our show we will show you more pictures of babies turning 1 today. >> so there is an update about the three little girls from the photothey took together that have gone viral. they are battling cancer. >> there they are. >> it is one of the photos. they didn't know each other and took the picture. the great news about when you see that you feel sort of sad but the great news today is that all three of those girls are in remission. so we are just very happy for them and for the families. we thought sometimes we show photos like that and it is nice
to know. the photographer wants to reunite the three girls and get them back together. >> that's fantastic. >> harrison ford, remember he was in england and they were shooting his "star wars" movie. >> he broke mething, never confirmed. >> it was such a weird thing. did he twist his ankle? this is the contraption he is walking around in. >> no crutches. he has sort of like bent at the knee and then he has a peg thing on the ground. give me crutches or something. >> he is 71 years old even with that thing i think he looks great. >> i do, too. >> i think he is a sexy man. what is interesting is they had to stop production on the movie. so this is a great piece of video. there is 105-year-old woman who celebrated her birthday in a
unique way. the oldest person ever to throw out a major league pitch. >> look at the windup and the toss. >> watch how she does it. >> and go! i think she did well especially considering some of the other people throwing out pitches. remember 50 cent. >> it's just a picture. that doesn't help. that is not great form. >> remember, he threw it into the bleachers on to the side. >> it is not as easy as it looks. >> i don't mean a girlie pitch. >> want an apology underneath. all of us have heard of procrastinators, the ones who pay taxes late and do things late. >> who is a procrastinator that you know? >> i am about certain things. taxes and bills.
i wait. >> jury duty. >> but there is a new thing called precontrast naters, people who do things too early. the people who show up to lunch a half hour before they are supposed to be there, people who pay their bills a month before and making us all feel overwhelmed and stressed out. >> or is it making the people doing it feel that way? >> i like being early. we show up early for lunch. >> we have been on live television for so many years. frank when he was coach under vince lombardi you were never to be on time with coach lombardi. you had to be there ten minutes ahead of time so you were late. we live by lombardi time. >> i like that. >> you have to factor in that things are going to happen. life happens. >> sometimes if people are eating with us they want to show up early.
i know when others come to meet us feel like they are late because we are already sitting there. >> everybody has just so much time in their lives. if you are chronicily late you are saying my time is more important than everybody else's. nobody's time is more important. >> what about five minutes late? >> things happen. you get stuck in traffic or the elevator. i think people have a grace period of five or ten minutes. people always late and come in breathless and always drama. >> the subway broke and it's like i don't want to know. >> you know we don't like your sexy photos online. >> for young teens who think it is cool to be like i'm at the beach look at my earrings and their boobs are out don't do that. studies show people don't like that. they looked at facebook profiles
for a fake 20-year-old woman. the bottom line is when you do that you annoy people. i know when i see pictures of someone saying you like my new jeans you are having everything out. >> you have to be careful. these things haunt you sometimes. you are trying to get a job and it is a serious subject. be careful. so we have a huge show. we have major, major stories. we have 5 seconds of summer performing. and from "i wish i was here" we are glad she is here. kate hudson. >> what a breath of fresh air
