Poor Liam Payne. All he wanted to do when One Direction won the award for Top Touring Artist at the Billboard Music Awards was thank probably his mum and dad and maybe us.
Unfortunately, the ceremony had other ideas. Those ideas being pulling a bit of a Kanye West and cutting him off before he could even say ‘thanks’, much to the rest of the boys amusement.
And ours, but that’s irrelevant. #OhNoLiam.
So here’s what went down in chinatown. Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles had already thanked the awesome Directioners for all their support, when Liam decided he had a few words to say and attempted to speak into the mic.
ALAS, the BBMAs just weren’t that bothered about what Daddy Payno had to say (RUDE), instead playing music and cutting him off on live TV.
Apply ice directly to burn, Liam.
Luckily, even Liam managed to laugh the whole awkward situation right off, with Louis, Harry, and Niall having absolutely no contro-o-o-ol and almost literally wetting themselves with laughter as they left the stage because LOL.
Sidenote: Can we set Luigi’s laugh as our ringtone please? It’s music to our ears and the world needs to hear it, tbh.
Of course, the wonderful scene of laughter, laughter and more laughter meant it didn’t take long for #OhNoLiam to start trending, with Lou himself also getting in on the act. Sort of. It’s close enough, anyway.
Directioners were quick to lend their creative skills to the trend, with this Monsters Inc comparison particuarly making us snort-laugh, which means it’s very good.
Then there was the realisation that maybe Niall planned the whole thing as revenge for that car prank:
The realisation that maybe last night just wasn’t Liam’s night. POOR BUBBA.
This WILL go down in history, after all.
Let’s just take a moment to imagine Niall as some sort of psychic please. ‘Kay thanks.
