It has finally happened!

Niall Horan just got up on stage at the 2016 American Music Awards and made history. It was him, his guitar, and his first performance at an awards show without One Direction. Of course, it was a bittersweet moment, but Nialler killed IT!

The Irish heartthrob sang his solo single, "This Town" and seriously caught the attention of everyone in the audience. As the cameras panned the crowd, people were singing along and it gave us all the feels. Niall showed that he can hold his own and we're so freaking excited for him!

Before the show, he admitted that it would definitely be different without the lads by his side, but he got up there just did his thang! Not to mention, he looked FAB. Now our eyes are peeled for Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson's reactions! We have a feeling they are freaking stoked for their bestie!

Congrats, Niall – we are SO proud of you!
