Meghan Trainor + Charlie Puth Had Plenty of Pre-AMAs Makeout Practiceby Ali Szubiak | PopCrush
Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth made for the most obnoxious PDA couple in the world when they extensively made out during the finale of their 2015 AMAs performance last night (November 22). Like a terrible train wreck, things got worse before they got better: There was excessive tonguing and ass grabbing, and it stretched on for an uncomfortable amount of time.
Puth was quick to shut down rumors of a budding relationship between the two, all but sprinting to his iPhone post-performance to quell any fears that he might actually be dating Trainor. He wrote, “before it begins…we are just friends. so happy to preform [sic] with meghan tonight!! thank you for all the love everybody! :)”

Trainor also cleared the air by posting a photo of the incident on Instagram with the caption, “All about dat ass grab doe @charlieputh proud of you Charlie #imsingle.” Phew! Glad that’s settled!
Their stage kiss was reflective of the music video they shot for their collaborative effort “Marvin Gaye,” which the two performed that night — they kissed onscreen then, too, so they’ve had some practice.
Trainor spoke to MTV about how painfully awkward it was at the time, saying, “There were, like, 40 people there and [Charlie’s] parents were in the greenroom — and so we had to make out a bunch of times. Everyone was cheering because I was so good at it, and we went back to the greenroom and I was like, ’What’s up Mom and Dad?’ So awkward.”
It was generous of them to resurrect that awkwardness in front of thousands of viewers last night, all in the name of art. If you missed it, worry not: Footage of the kiss lives on and no amount of brain bleach will ever erase it from your mind’s eye. Watch below!
