The celebrity couple took to the stage at the AMAs for an eye-catching performance, shortly before picking up their prize.

The couple, who have been together since July, won collaboration of the year in a category also containing Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s Shallow, Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ Old Town Road, Marshmellow and Bastille’s Happier and Post Malone and Swae Lee’s Sunflower.

Cabello and Mendes took to the stage together at the MTV Video Music Awards in August.
