Meghan Trainor playfully cringes at kissing Charlie Puth during her 2015 AMAs performance

Meghan Trainor jumped on a popular one TikTok trend Tuesday to look back on her rather regrettable choice to lock lips with Charlie Puth in 2015.

Using the viral audio “Hal Walker Plays the Banakulas”,Bad for me” the singer twerked it out while celebrating some career highlights — namely her debut single “All About That Bass,” which reached No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 and won a Grammy for Best New Artist in 2016 – before the fun stopped.

“The decision to kiss Charlie Puth on national television in 2015,” the screen reads as Trainor mouths, “Two pieces of masking tape tied together with a pink ribbon” and grimaces at the camera. (Trust us, the lip sync makes sense in the context of the challenge.)

The moment Trainor refers to occurred at 2015 American Music Awards where she performed her hit single “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” before being joined on stage by Puth for his flirty Nine tracks of mind ode to teenage lust “Marvin Gaye.” At the end of the latter, Puth stepped out from behind the piano, Trainor beckoned him closer, and the two embraced in a passionate kiss as the crowd erupted into surprised cheers.

The music video for the track also happens to end with the singers locking lips – but at the time both stars insisted they were nothing more than friends and collaborators. These days, Trainor is married to husband Daryl Sabara of Spy Kids fame and is preparing the release of her fifth album Taking it back on Oct. 21. Coincidentally, Puth’s self-titled LP Charlie is set to arrive two weeks early, on Oct. 7.
