One Direction to Attend First Awards Show Without Zayn Malik

One Direction is making a big leap next week: attending a a major awards show sans Zayn Malik.

One Direction Feud
The One Direction fandom has got Louis Tomlinson's back against Zayn Malik.

The boyband is set to take the 2015 Billboard Music Awards stage on Sunday, May 17 for the first time since Malik departed from the group. The foursome — Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne — is set to present one of the awards alongside the show’s hosts Chrissy Teigen and Ludacris.

The BBMA news comes on the heels of Malik’s very public feud with Tomlinson after the 1D member poked fun of Naughty Boy for posting a photo of him and Malik using their “cool” Macbook Photo Booth filter.

Malik retorted, “Remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?”

The dispute was likely caused by some unsettled issues between Mailk and the 1D boys after he decided to leave the group in March and begin a solo career.

Hopefully their BBMA appearance will be a stepping stone in move forward.
