The 2017 American Music Awards aired tonight and as always there were a ton of amazing performances (we're looking at you, Niall Horan) and seriously cute moments that had us shrieking with delight. Of course, there were a bunch of precious interactions that happened when the video cameras weren't rolling, too — luckily, a lot of them were snapped behind-the-scenes.

Shawn Mendes and Nialler may not have taken the stage together, but they sat next to each and chatted for a while (and there's photo proof that will literally melt your heart). Ansel Elgort caught up with BTS and made sure to snap a pic that will make you LOL because he is the ultimate fanboy and we totally love it. Then there's Selena Gomez, who despite her odd performance, had a cute moment with her good friend Julia Michaels afterward. Curious to see the pics? Scroll down to check them out!
