There are a lot of boy bands out there, some might say too many too realistically keep track of and remember their faces. So for Mariah Carey to confuse Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, more commonly known as The Chainsmokers, for members of One Direction, isn’t all that unprecedented.

That’s apparently exactly what happened when the duo ran into the songstress.

“I remember seeing her and I was like, ‘Oh my God! Like ‘Fantasy’ and ‘Honey,’” Pall said uring a radio appearance Wednesday on SiriusXM’s “The Morning Mashup.” “And she was like, ‘Dude, I love you guys!’”

Unfortunately, the moment was shortlived.

“Were like, ‘Wow, you know who we are? And she was like, ‘One Direction, right?’” Pall said.

Of course, once Carey was made aware of her mistake, she owned up to it and joked about the whole ordeal.

Maybe we’ll get a Chainsmokers & Mariah collaboration out of it? Probably not, but could you imagine?
