Shawnmila stans, rejoice!

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes came quite close to touching lips while performing their duet “Señorita” during the 2019 American Music Awards.

After arriving solo (as they did at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this year), the cute couple performed a sexy rendition of their smash collaboration together.

Before kicking off their performance, Taylor Swift pointed at Mendes — and he couldn’t hold back a giggle. During the performance, Swift was seen watching in awe and interacting with Billy Porter. Both were clearly expecting a kiss from the couple.

Cabello, 22, arrived on the red carpet wearing a tan-colored dress and a long braid. while Mendes, 21, wore a navy blue suit with aqua green accents — and no shirt!
