Did Simon Cowell just made the most awkward joke of 2015?
The boys of 1D introduced their boss at the Music Industry Trusts event to accept an award based on his contributions to the music biz!
But the memorable part of the night was definitely when Cowell went on stage to collect his trophy, and gave some cheeky banter about the former band member!
He said to the audience, grabbing the mic:
“Just my luck I get the award I’ve been wanting all my life and I’m completely hammered. Guys, who misses Zayn?”
Continuing his speech, Cowell added:
“We all get old but I’ve still got charisma!”
The joke seemed all in good fun, and the boys didn’t seem to take it to heart — as they only had good things to say about their mentor!
Watch the clip (below) to what they had to say about the man who made them famous!
