Niall Horan cries while on stage singing ballad Little Things
ONE Direction star Niall Horan was overcome with emotion as he performed their hit Little Things to a packed arena.
The 19-year-old Irish star was seen welling up as he sang the slushy ballad on stage alongside fellow 1D members Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson.
The boys were performing in Glasgow on Wednesday night as part of their Take Me Home tour when fans spotted Niall getting teary as he played the tune of his guitar, with the moment caught on video by several fans at the gig.
Zayn was also seen becoming watery-eyed during his solo in the song.
Fans at the show then started a frenzied exchange of images and love-fuelled messages on Twitter about the touching moment.
