Fans weren't mad about Niall Horan's choice of hat at the American Music Awards

At least he bagged the New Artist of the Year award.

IT HAS BEEN a pretty big month for Niall Horan.

Just over a week ago, Horan signed a modeling contract with Wilhelmina Models who represent a heap of big celebs like Nicki Minaj, Shawn Mendes and Nick Jonas. Then last night, Niall took home the New Artist of the Year award at the American Music Awards in LA.

After he scooped up his award, he returned to the stage to perform his single ‘Slow Hands’, but decided to wear a very Harry Styles-esque hat while doing so. The notions of modelling must have gone to his head already.

Fans took to Twitter to discuss the hat, suggesting it should be ‘lit on fire’.

Some believe this never would have happened if One Direction had remained together.

And one fan believed that being a country singer and being Irish are mutually exclusive.

If only she knew…

Here’s the video of Niall’s performance, which was unimpeded by his very large hat.

Somehow it actually sounds a lot more like a country song while he’s wearing that hat.
