The One Directioner and the “Pillow Talk” singer both attended the 2016 American Music Awards on Sunday (Nov. 20) where they shared a brief interaction amidst all the excitement.
Twitter user @EverglowAnne was able to capture the moment Malik and Horan crossed paths for the rest of us who weren’t lucky enough to be there in person!
“Here’s the video of Niall and Zayn shaking hands. Zayn was shook. I’m also shook,” tweeted the fan.
The video shows Horan coming down the aisle at the venue and just as he passes by where Malik is sitting, the “This Town” singer takes his hand and gives it a quick shake before heading back to his own seat.
Later, the Twitter user clarified that fans shouldn’t interpret brief moment as an icy interaction. Apparently Horan and Malki’s reunion was cut short because both musicians were pressed for time.
“They had 30 seconds to get to their seats and Niall was on the other side of the area so it was fast,” wrote the fan.
Despite the short but sweet moment in the audience, we’re really hoping Malik and Horan were able to catch up later on in the night. Either way, it’s nice to know that despite the fact that both singers are focusing on solo music, they’re still on good terms!
