Zayn Malik And Niall Horan’s Reunion At The 2016 AMAs Was As Awkward As You’d Expect

Zayn Malik And Niall Horan Awkwardly Reunite At The AMAsAs soon as Niall Horan was added to the 2016 AMAs performance lineup, fans were holding their breath to see what would go down between him and his former bandmate Zayn Malik. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet, Niall addressed the inevitable reunion. “I haven’t spoken to him in a few months or whatever, and I haven’t seen him in a while so I’m looking forward to seeing him,” the singer said. While Niall was looking forward to it, Zayn didn’t seem to have given it any thought and the result makes you wonder what will happen when all of the former One Direction members start releasing solo music.

In a short video captured by a guest at the award show, Niall is seen walking by Zayn. He stops to say a quick hello and the two exchange an awkward handshake before Niall continues on his way. Zayn’s reaction seems more like a tired celebrity greeting yet another fan after being caught slightly off guard.
