One Direction and Zayn Malik have both been nominated in the Choice Male Hottie category. This means fans will have to vote for one or the other, making it the hardest choice ever.

This conflict could prove to be great news for the other young stars nominated in the category. With 1D and Zayn possibly splitting the vote, the award could go to 5 Seconds of Summer, Austin Mahone, Justin Bieber or Ryan Guzman.
