He can’t shake her off!

Darren Criss shared the hilarious disadvantage to sitting behind Taylor Swift at an award show during Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.

The 31-year-old Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story star posted a video on Twitter during Shawn Mendes’ performance of “In My Blood," but unfortunately for him, he sat behind Swift and her pal, Camila Cabello, who chose to stand and dance to the tune, blocking Criss’ view of the stage.

“Uh, miss? Miss? Excuse me, miss? Miss, I can’t see! I’m trying to watch Shawn Mendes!” Criss quipped, jokingly trying to get Swift’s attention as she has her back to him.

To be fair, Swift has a pretty close connection to Mendes. The 19-year-old singer opened for Swift’s Rose Bowl concert on Saturday as a part of her Reputation stadium tour.

Swift had reason to dance as she picked up two BBMAs for Top Female Artist and Top Selling Album for her album, Reputation.

The "Gorgeous" singer also had a blast posing with hit boy band BTS and supermodel Tyra Banks while at the awards show. 

As for her Saturday concert, Swift was also joined on stage by best friend Selena Gomez, and the pair performed Gomez’s hit song, “Can’t Keep My Hands to Myself." The 25-year-old singer couldn't help but gush over her 12-year friendship with Swift while the crowd cheered. 

“The reason why she’s been one of my best friends is this person has never, ever judged a single decision I’ve made,” Gomez said onstage. “She’s always met me where I’ve been. She’s encouraged me when I’ve had nothing to be encouraged about. And I don’t know if I would be as strong as I am if I didn’t have you and your family in my life.”
