Yes, it was Zyan Malik's day at the American Music Awards 2016, the singer got his first AMA as a solo artist. Seems that he must be feeling really blessed enough to sit into the huge VIP list and see her girlfriend Gigi Hadid hosting the award ceremony. And more icing on the cake happened when Zyan Malik stole the limelight.

Proudly he quoted, "Wow. This just has my name on it, right". But how many of us could get through the real sarcasm pointed towards his ex-band One Direction? We remember how he shot to fame with other band members. His supporters must have gone gaga with praise, as he added, "Also, big thank you to you guys".

Taking complete advantage of the stage and his popularity as he earned it, he just didn't shy away from taking a dig at the band's reputation. As he looked at the shiny statue in his hand, it must have stung many others present at the ceremony.

Later Zyan Malik said, "I can't thank the people that have been with me every day the past year enough", he continued. "Standing here is crazy. My mom, my dad, everybody in my family that's been supporting me the past year, especially my dad. Thank you, Dad. Also, big thank you to you guys. I didn't expect anybody to still vote for me. So thank you, and I"ll put it on my fireplace".

Backstage, Zyan Malik  and Gigi Hadid's PDA was much more evident, as the two passionately embrace each other. So it seems like Zayn Malik gets the last laugh, even if nobody else did at all. Niall Horan was also present at the AMA, where he performed his latest solo single "This Town".
