Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello did exactly what you’d expect them to do during an award show: Act very coupley and affectionate when they weren’t on stage. Once again when they performed “Señorita,” they didn’t kiss, though they were pretty touchy during their performance.
But that was part theatrics. The real moments were when they weren’t center-stage. In their seat, they held hands and let photographers capture that moment:
And when they walked off stage after winning an AMA for “Señorita,” Cabello grabbed Mendes’ arm and eventually held his hand. Cameras caught that too, along with Mendes wrapping an arm around Cabello:
This isn’t the first award show the two have been affectionate at. They were also all over the other at the MTV VMAs at the end of August. Last week, they made out while on a dinner date in Santa Monica and showed PDA during an entire NBA game. Photographers at the game captured them holding hands, kissing, cuddling, etc. They did not mind a stadium of people seeing.
Mendes and Cabello’s song “Señorita” won the award for Collaboration of the Year tonight. Mendes also has a Favorite Social Artist nomination, and Cabello performed solo during the show too.
Cabello spoke openly this fall about how she was always attracted to Mendes, but the timing originally wasn’t right. “Definitely there were feelings, but I think we were just too young to know what to do with them,” she told The Sun in October.
But it wasn’t just their being single at the same time—and Mendes’ attractiveness—that made Cabello fall hard for him. It was his heart: “The thing I’ve always loved about Shawn so much is that he just radiates this goodness,” she said. “He’s always been so kind.”
