Category mistakeEdit

The day of the ceremony, Zayn was incorrectly announced as the winner for the Best Music Video category, and he accepted the award. The error was not caught until the next day, when the actual winner, Fifth Harmony, was announced on the iHeartRadio's official Twitter account.[7][8] Zayn was then announced as the winner of the category "Best Solo Breakout".[7]
