The British-Irish boyband walked the red carpet at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night (23 November), taking home three gongs at the end of the night.
Zayn looked healthier than in recent days and was pictured messing around with one of the band's three prizes in the press area.
The singer was recently struck down by stomach flu which cause him to pull out of 1D's big appearance and performance on America's Today breakfast programme.
But last night, he was back to his best while joining Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan at the LA awards ceremony.
As well as taking home three trophies – including 'Artist of the Year' – the five-piece performed their new song 'Night Changes'.
Fans were definitely happy to see Zayn - and his hair! - back. Has one man's perfectly groomed locks ever caused so much excitement?!
