Awww! Niall Horan performed on the American Music Awards stage solo for the first time on Nov. 20, and it was totally amazing! We have all the details on his “This Town” performance, right here!
We’re not crying, you are! Niall Horan, 23, performed his sentimental new song “This Town” at the American Music Awards on Nov. 20, and it was as beautiful as it was emotional! The former One Direction singer showed off his amazing voice and proved that he doesn’t need anyone else to shine. However, he still took the performance to the next level by bringing a full band along with him.

The former boybander was surrounded by soft lighting that looked like a music meter behind him as his band surrounded him on a pile of rugs on the circular stage. Niall’s fashion was also on-point. He looked super adorable in his brown wool vest over a white button down shirt, and our hearts melted when we saw he was playing his own acoustic guitar. We’re in love!
“This Town” is the first song that Niall released without One Direction, and we’re glad to se that he’s equally amazing on his own. However, it did make us a little emotional to see him on stage alone, bringing back memories of all the guys performing “Perfect” together in 2015 and “Night Changes” in 2014 on that very same stage.
We wonder if it made it easier or harder to perform knowing that his buddy Zayn Malik was in the audience looking on as Niall sang his song. Zayn was the first to break off from the fivesome, and he did it amazingly. Maybe Niall got some pointers, because he’s sure following in Zayn’s footsteps!
