The AMAs are all about bringing people together, including two estranged former boy banders.
Niall Horan was at the American Music Awards to perform his new single "This Town," which put him on course for a brief reunion with his ex bandmate Zayn Malik, who was there to accept the award for Best New Artist Of The Year.
A One Directioner caught the slightly awkward exchange of pleasantries on SnapChat for us to gawk at:
