Niall Horan is performing his new single ‘This Town’ at the 2016 American Music Awards on Nov. 20, and of course we all know that his ex-bandmate Zayn Malik is also set to attend. So could there be an awkward meeting between the two?
Niall Horan, 23, is following in the footsteps of Zayn Malik, 23, and pursuing a solo career, and we can’t wait to see him perform “This Town” on Sunday. However, there’s a chance that Niall and fellow former One Directioner Zayn will run into each other on the red carpet or backstage — which could be super weird, considering Zayn more or less shaded 1D in his book.
Still, Niall is probably thrilled that the focus will be on him during the awards show. He performed “Perfect” with the rest of the band — 1D is a ten-time AMA nominee and seven-time winner — at the AMAs in 2015, “Night Changes” in 2014 and “Story of My Life” in 2013, but this will obviously be the first time he takes the stage solo. So exciting!
Fans can’t wait for Niall to perform, and Twitter has been blowing up ever since the news broke. “Cant wait for you to perform at the @AMAs @NiallHoran,” one fan tweeted. “Niall. #AMAs. First solo performance. This Town WILL be performed. I am SO happy for him. Time for @NiallOfficial to shine!” another wrote. Yep, this will certainly be his night!
