Niall Horan made his mark as a solo artist with a performance of "This Town" at the 2016 American Music Awards.

The former One Direction singer -- who released the acoustic guitar-driven debut track back in September to little fanfare -- was flanked by a small group of musicians as he performed a dutiful version of "This Town" on the AMAs stage.

Check out Niall's performance of "This Town" at the 2016 American Music Awards in the video above.
