Why Harry Styles And Niall Horan *Aren’t* At The Brit Awards

So everyone is talking about Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne at the Brit Awards.

The One Direction singers turned up on the red carpet together earlier this evening – but fans couldn’t help noticing that something was missing.

What was that? Er, their bandmates Harry Styles and Niall Horan, obvs.


There’s no denying that Liam, 22, and 24-year-old Louis made a handsome pairing as they arrived at London’s O2 Arena.

Liam was sporting a dapper navy suit and white T-shirt combo, which he’d matched with sexy stubble and a newly-shaven head.

Opting for a slightly more quirky ensemble, new dad Louis was rocking a metallic blazer with a buttoned-up shirt.


But where were Harry and Niall? Considering 1D’s single Drag Me Down is up for the Best Video gong, you’d think they’d want to be there.

Niall Horan and Harry Styles have skipped the Brits. Boooo


Their absence certainly caused a storm on Twitter, with comments including: ‘GET UR ASSES TO THE BRITS WHERE TF R U’, ‘you’re dead to me’, and ‘not only did you let us down, you let yourselves down.’ Crikey.

But according to reports, Niall is currently enjoying a holiday in Thailand while Harry has simply ‘shown no interest in attending’.

One Direction have been nominated for Best Video


A source told The Sun: ‘This could have been one last hurrah for the boys at what could be their last Brit Awards as a band.

‘Louis and Liam want to be there as a thank you for all the fans voting for them in the Best Video category – which is the big audience vote of the night.

Harry Styles had ‘no interest’ in attending the Brits


‘The band still have a massive fanbase and they should clean up in the public vote so they’re hoping it won’t be a wasted trip.’

Boo. We miss you, guys!
