ICYMI: Jackson from GOT7 was hanging out with Liam Payne at the EMAs

13 November 2017
The MTV EMA isn't just your ordinary awards show; we've got a great lineup of performers, presenters, host and artists from around the world for one sole purpose – to celebrate music!

And don't even get me started on the amount of eye-candies right here – Shawn Mendes, Rita Ora, Liam Payne and Camilla Cabello? Major yums! But, there was this "guy with the green highlighter" that really stood out to us – it was Jackson Wang from the K-pop boy group, GOT7! Jackson showed up to the party as an ambassador from Greater China and if you don't already know, he is Chinese.

As Rita Ora introduces the next act, Stormzy, to the stage, Jackson was seen hanging out with Liam Payne at the on-stage bar! Check it!

We aren't sure if Jackson was really 'fanboy-ing' Liam Payne right there. But its really adorable if it is!

Jackson didn't grace the stage for long, but if you check out #MTVEMA fan tweets, you'll see a whole lot of love despite the brief appearance. Considering he had just under 30 seconds of screen-time, he basically stole the show in the Twitterverse!

I really meant it when I said that the MTV EMA is a place to forge new friendships. Just look at them!

Are we possibly looking at a Jackson X Liam collab in the future? We are pretty sure they are gonna give us something wicked if they did!
