Olly Murs is hoping to convert some of One Direction's US fans to his music.
The Heart Skips a Beat singer is to support One Direction on their North American tour from May 29.
He told MTV News: "One Direction have been brilliant in allowing me to go on tour with them and I get on really well with the guys so yeah, it's going to be exciting.
"They are causing loads of hype and hysteria everywhere they go so to be invited along it's going to be fun."
He added: "Hopefully I can convert them [their fans] into the Murs army and the Ollyettes so if they can be converted, that will be great."
Asked if he would like to achieve the same level of success as the boyband, he replied: "There's always room for everyone, but for me, America is just a good challenge and fingers crossed the song does well and if it does, it will be amazing!"
Murs recently confirmed that he will be returning to The Xtra Factor with Caroline Flack.
Olly may have to cut his US tour short to return to host The X Factor spin-off show.
