Did Payne, Tomlinson kiss onstage?

LONDON: Musical artistes Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson accidently kissed each other onstage at the One Direction’s concert in Birmingham.

The two, who often goof around onstage, were caught on camera kissing during the show on October 10, reports aceshowbiz.com.

In a video shared on Twitter by someone in the audience, Payne and Tomlinson wrapped their hands around each other towards the end of the concert.

Their lips appeared to briefly touch when they leaned in at the same time. The duo didn’t seem to mind the kiss while fans went frenzy on the micro-blogging website.

Most of the fans insisted that the two didn’t kiss, but found the video hilarious.

“If we stop the video it really seems they kissed by accident by omg this is so funny, their faces. #lilokiss,” one fan tweeted.

One Direction is currently on the European leg of their ‘On the Road Again’ tour while gearing up to release their new album, Made in the A.M.

Marking their fifth studio effort, and their first without former bandmate Zayn Malik, the project is due out on November 13.
