Niall Horan to perform solo at the American Music Awards

Niall Horan will make his American Music Awards debut as a solo artist on Sunday night (20Nov16) when he performs his new hit This Town.

The Irish singer became the first current member of One Direction to release a solo single in September (16), and the track has become a worldwide hit.

Horan will now join previously announced performers Maroon 5 and Kendrick Lamar, Fifth Harmony, Lady Gaga, Green Day, John Legend, and Bruno Mars, among others, who will hit the stage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Horan previously hit the AMAs stage with his One Direction bandmates in 2013, 2014 and last year (15). As a member of the boy band, he has collected seven AMAs.

Gigi Hadid and comedian Jay Pharoah will co-host the event. Drake leads all nominees with a record 13 nods, while Rihanna has seven and Adele and Justin Bieber have five apiece.
