The Bromance is real: Our favorite young pop star, Shawn Mendes, went to the American Music Awards ceremony this week – where he met fellow singer Niall Horan (formerly of One Direction).

The two were so adorable together all night long – that fans are already dreaming about relationship goals.

19-year-old Shawn Mendes (who, according to some rumors, is actually dating Hailey Baldwin these days) did well at the awards ceremony, winning “Favorite Artist – Adult Contemporary”. 24-year-old Niall Horan, who released his first solo album this year, won the “New Artist of the Year” award.

But the best part for us – and their fans – was seeing Shawn and Niall affectionately supporting each other throughout the evening. This photo, posted on Shawn’s Instagram account with the caption “Love you man, congratulations!” says it all:

Of course, the fans immediately started writing things like “”Find you a man who looks at you the way Shawn looks at Niall.”

Further on, when Shawn was notified of his win, the two shared a beautiful hug:

Everyone’s happy for them…
