"I haven't spoken to him in a few months or whatever, and haven't seen him in a while, so I'm looking forward to seeing him." Niall Horan was keen to meet up with former One Direction bandmate Zayn Malik at the 2016 American Music Awards on Sunday night (20Nov16). Horan performed his song This Town at the beginning of the show and Zayn, who quit the boy band in March, 2015 to pursue a solo career, was at the show to support his girlfriend Gigi Hadid, who was co-hosting the show with Jay Pharoah. The Pillowtalk singer also picked up the New Artist of the Year award and joked, "This one just has my name on it, right?"
