    Story time! On Wednesday, The Chainsmokers stopped by The Morning Mash Up radio show where they opened up about the first time they met the music icon at an award show.

    At an award show, @TheChainsmokers were SO excited to meet @MariahCarey.. but things got real awkward real quickly.

    "We met Mariah Carey this one time," said Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers. "I remember seeing her and I was like, 'Oh my God, 'Fantasy' and 'Honey.''"
