Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth have both loved enormous, breakout success in the previous two years, each touchdown their first No. 1 on the Hot 100, and the two joined forces for a medley of Trainor’s platinum single “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” and the duet’s “Marvin Gaye” at tonight’s 2015 American Music Awards.
Taking the stage facing a simulated rain-soaked backdrop, Trainor’s understated ballad was delivered by her having a trust that grew prior to the curtain rose to reveal Puth and his four-man backing band. As he launched into “Marvin Gaye,” Trainor sauntered out following a fast ensemble change to join the vocalist by his trademark piano.
And then the shocker — as the tune was completed by the duo, they went in to get a kiss as the crowd looked on, that turned into a protracted makeout session.
