He can’t shake her off!
Darren Criss shared the hilarious disadvantage to sitting behind Taylor Swift at an award show during Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.
The 31-year-old Assassination of Gianni Versace star posted a video on Twitter during Shawn Mendes’ performance of “In My Blood.” Unfortunately for him, he sat behind Swift as well as her pal Camila Cabello, who chose to stand as well as dance to the tune, blocking Criss’ view of the stage.
“Uh, miss? Miss? Excuse me, miss? Miss, I can’t see! I’m trying to watch Shawn Mendes!” Criss quips, jokingly trying to get Swift’s attention as she has her back to him.
To be fair, Swift incorporates a pretty close connection to Mendes. The 19-year-old opened for Swift’s Rose Bowl concert on Saturday as a part of her Reputation Stadium Tour. Swift also picked up two BBMAs for Top Female Artist as well as Top Selling Album for Reputation, so she had a reason to dance.
Swift also had a blast at the show, posing with hit boy band BTS as well as supermodel Tyra Banks.
For her Saturday concert, Swift was also joined on stage by bestie Selena Gomez. The pair performed Gomez’s hit “Can’t Keep My Hands to Myself,” as well as Gomez gushed about her friend of 12 years to the cheering crowd.
“The reason why she’s been one of my best friends is actually This kind of person has never ever judged 1 decision I’ve made,” Gomez explained on stage. “She’s always met me where I’ve been. She’s encouraged me when I’ve had nothing to be encouraged about. as well as I don’t know if I could be as strong as I am if I didn’t have you as well as your family in my life.”
