Niall Horan has hit the AMAs stage but it is the first time he'll be doing it as a solo act. Earlier today, we learned that Niall will be performing his new single, "This Town," this year, marking a huge moment as a bona fide solo artist. "Absolutely delighted to be performing 'This Town,'" Niall tweeted this morning before tagging the official AMAs account and posting a photo of the single cover.
As we already know, he'll be joined by some of our absolute faves, as Gigi Hadid is set to host the evening, that there will be performances by everyone from Fifth Harmony
