Louis Tomlinson up for Best Solo Breakout Award at iHeartRadio Music Awards

(For Louis Tomlinson to win, vote here)

Frequently Asked Questions About iHeartRadio Music Awards Answered HERE

Louis Tomlinson has been nominated for the Best Solo Breakout Award at this year's iHeartRadio Music Awards, but there is one slightly awkward twist.

Two years after One Direction announced their hiatus, the popular British star is also up against his former bandmates, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Liam Payne for the same award.

The categories and nominees for the March 11 show were announced yesterday (January 10), and the award is completely determined by online voting, which could prove slightly tricky for hardcore One Directioners.

Fans who are torn between having to pick between their favorite boyband members, have the option of voting for megastar, Camila Cabello, who is also nominated as the sole female artist in the category, though it may not be easy for some.

However, Tomlinson fans are supporting his solo career for now, which to-date has been nothing short of hugely succesful. His debut solo single and collaboration with Steve Aoki, "Just Hold On," was certified gold in both the UK and United States. Furthermore, his summer banger, "Back To You," featuring Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals, was a Number One hit in 37 countries, streamed over 220 million times and sold over 1 million copies.
