Imagine getting the opportunity to attend the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, only to have your view of Shawn Mendes obstructed during the majority of his performance. Well, that was the unfortunate case for Darren Criss, who documented the accidental travesty caused by none other than Taylor Swift.
The Glee alum took to Twitter to share a clip of himself simply trying to enjoy Mendes’ performance at the BBMAs. The young singer was treating the crowd to a rendition of “In My Blood,” but it’s a bit difficult to hear him over Criss’ comical complaints.
“Miss? Excuse me, miss,” he repeats sarcastically behind an oblivious Swift, who is jamming out alongside Reputation tourmate Camila Cabello. “Miss, I can’t see! I’m trying to watch Shawn Mendes!”
Still, Criss doesn’t seem too broken up about the obstructed view, suddenly belting out the song’s chorus at the end of the clip — perhaps to slyly play it cool as Swift finally catches on to his antics.
See Criss’ amusing tweet below.
