How One Niall Horan Fan Slayed the 2016 AMAs

As the world’s biggest fan-voted award show, the American Music Awards are made for by the fans, by the fans. So, what better way to honor the fans who make the AMAs possible than invite them to the show?!

We invited several fans who run popular fan accounts to the 2016 AMAs, one being Shila Bui aka @1DWhereAbout. Back at the beginning of November, Shila started a hashtag in hopes of getting Niall Horan to perform his new single “This Town” on the show: #NiallOnAMAs.

We saw the hashtag, Niall saw the hashtag and what do you know, Niall ended up performing on the 2016 AMAs! So, we invited Shila to the show and she had “the best night of her entire life.” Check out Shila’s AMAs journey below!

Shila is going to the AMAs!

First, she hit up the red carpet.

Then, it was time for the show!

Thank you so much to the @AMAS for inviting me!!! I'm so excited!!!

Of course we gave her the best seats in the house.

Niall performed his debut single “This Town” on the AMAs stage!

Honestly, she just really couldn’t even.


Overall, she had the best night ever.

Thank YOU for attending the 2016 AMAs and supporting Niall, Shila! The AMAs wouldn’t be possible without fans like you.
