Niall Horan Set To Bore The AMAs With “This Town”

Niall Horan Set To Bore The AMAs With This TownNiall Horan was added to the performance lineup for this year’s American Music Awards, marking his return to the show’s stage sans One Direction. Previously announced performers include Fifth Harmony, Lady Gaga, Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. The solo One Directioner will perform his debut single “This Town,” which even he admits is a snooze. The circumstances surrounding the 2016 AMAs could, in theory, cause enough excitement to overshadow Niall’s admittedly boring tune.

Zayn Malik, Niall’s former bandmate, is up for “Best New Artist” so he could likely be in attendance. If that’s not enough to get him to the red carpet, girlfriend Gigi Hadid’s hosting gig could seal the deal. Opportunities for super awkward audience, meaning Zayn, reactions could be that shiny glimmer of hope. Also, take a minute to imagine Gigi, devout Zayn supporter, responding to that performance, especially considering her recent One Direction digs.

For now, this all remains mountain-out-of-molehill speculation. Fans will find out how it all goes down this Sunday night at 8PM ET on ABC.

Gigi Hadid Is Excited To Bring Her Monotone Voice To The American Music Awards

Gigi Hadid talks AMAs and ZaynGigi Hadid is on the publicity train now that it has been announced that she will co-host the American Music Awards on November 20. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the model talked about her upcoming hosting duties.

“I’m so excited, I can’t believe it,” the model says with such little emotion that if she wasn’t smiling you wouldn’t believe her. Gigi will be hosting alongside former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Jay Pharoah, who will hopefully balance out Gigi’s laid-back personality. “We have to carry an entire show, so there’s no one better than someone with a great sense of humor,” she adds.

The AMAs will also be a special night for Gigi’s boyfriend Zayn Malik who could possibly take home the “Best New Artist” award. “I’m so excited for him. I think that he is so talented. You know, comes from such a genuine place of loving music,” she says.

Watch the full interview below.

Zayn Malik Has A Shot At Being Best New Artist At The 2016 American Music Awards

Zayn Malik Now Has A Shot At Being The Best New Artist, 2016 American Music Awards Nominees Are OutJoe Jonas and Rachel Platten stopped by “Good Morning America” Monday morning to announce the nominations for the 2016 American Music Awards. It was an exciting morning as both Joe and Rachel discovered personal nominations. DNCE is up for two AMAs, “New Artist of the Year” and “Favorite Duo or Group” in the Pop/Rock category, while Rachel is up for “Favorite Artist” in the Adult Contemporary category. DNCE will face off against Zayn Malik in the New Artist category. Zayn, as you might recall, was deemed ineligible for receiving a nomination in the “Best New Artist” category at this year’s Grammys due to his involvement in One Direction.

Zayn isn’t the only one getting good news. Drake’s 2016 AMA nominations have broken a 32-year record. The rapper is up for 13 awards, which beats out Michael Jackson’s record of 11 nominations in 1984.

The 2016 American Music Awards will air live November 20 at 8pm ET on ABC.

Check out the full list of nominations below and let us know what you think.
