Can we make this happen please?

Over the last few weeks we've seen some pretty good lip-syncing from the likes of Anne Hathaway and The Rock, but a new contender just stepped up to the microphone: Anna Kendrick.

The actress is the latest Hollywood star to appear on Lip Sync Battle (that TV show you'd never actually sit down to watch but can't get enough of on YouTube), and decided to make her debut by essentially auditioning for the vacant role of Zayn Malik in One Direction.

She sang 'Steal My Girl' while gently stroking the side of Emily Blunt's face, but all anyone was really thinking was, "Why hasn't this deal been done?"

Now you've seen Anna Kendrick as the new Zayn Malik, can you stop One Direction from splitting up?
