This is exciting! Both Zayn Malik and Niall Horan will be at the American Music Awards on Nov. 20, and it’s the first time they’ll be in the same place since One Direction split up! So, will the dudes be sitting together? See for yourself, right here.
Okay, don’t get too excited just yet. Hearing that Zayn Malik, 23, and Niall Horan, 23, would be in the same place at the same time at the American Music Awards on Nov. 20 was thrilling for about two seconds before we learned that they most likely won’t come in contact at all. “Zayn and Niall couldn’t be seated further away from each other!” says our eyewitness to the AMAs seating plan. “Zayn has two empty seats on either side of him. Niall is seated in a completely different section and 4th row back behind Ryan Seacrest.” Aw man!
In the seating charts above, you can see that Niall is behind Ryan and in front of Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy while Zayn is a world away surrounded by empty seats and Sting. It doesn’t look like these two will be spending any time together during the show.
As a matter of fact, a source told HollywoodLife.com that Zayn is very worried about seeing Niall, but not because of any bad blood. “The fact that Niall will be there only adds to the pressure for Zayn because he wants to be his best in front of his old bandmate,” said the insider. Zayn has cancelled several appearances because of the stress they cause him, and the AMAs will be no different, “Zayn’s anxiety issues have been challenging for him heading into this big awards show, but Zayn loves his fans, and more than anything wants to be at the AMAs for them,” another source says. Good for you, dude! We hope it all goes smoothly.
