Niall Horan Wins Fan Fave International Artist Or Group

The fans have spoken, and they’ve named Niall Horan the winner of Fan Fave International Artist or Group! The former One Direction member used his quick hands to pick up one of his first solo awards tonight, beating out Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry and fellow performer Lorde in the fan voted category.

The award was presented by actor Shenae Grimes-Beech, YouTuber Tyler Oakley, and host Alessia Cara, who last year took home the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Award for Best New Canadian Artist.

Making his first appearance of the night during the live show, Horan—looking dapper in jade green blazer—appeared on stage and thanked the crowd for giving him a great reception. He also noted that the MMVA was his first solo award earned in Canada and reminded his hordes of cheering fans that he’d be back on stage soon to perform singles “This Town” and “Slow Hands.”

The 2017 iHeartRadio MMVAs are hosted by Alessia Cara and Joe Jonas and feature performances from Camila Cabello, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Julia Michaels, Post Malone, Jazz Cartier, Niall Horan, DNCE, and Arkells.
