Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's 'Senorita' may have released six months back but the song and the singer couple continue to create hysteria of sorts. On Sunday, at the American Music Awards night, Medes and Cabello raised the temperature once again with a scintillating performance on their hit track.
Introduced by Ciara, Cabello kicked off the performance in a curve-hugging red dress, before Mendes emerged at the front of the stage, playing his guitar.
The two shared crackling chemistry on stage with most fans and celebrities seated audience expecting them to kiss on stage. But despite a lot of nudging, stroking each other, and literally breathing on each other's face- the two ended the steamy performance without kiss even as the audience including Taylor Swift gasped for some air.
Later at night, Cabello and Mendes won the 'Collaboration of the Year for 'Senorita.' See full list of winners.
Last week, the hit song also fetched the two singers a Grammy Nomination. "Nominated for a Grammy with my favorite person !!!!!!!! @shawnmendes EEEEEEEPPP!!!!!! congrats to all our friends who got nominated too thank you @recordingacademy," she wrote on Wednesday, following the news.
This is not the first time that Mendes and Cabello put up a steamy performance at an awards night. Earlier this year, the two sizelled on stage as the crooned the song at MTV Video Music Awards. There too, the audience had rooted for them to kiss, but they hadn't.
