OMG! Is it hot in here, or is it just the insane chemistry between Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello on stage at the 2015 PCAs?
Shawn’s performance started out very dramatic as he stood on stage underneath the illusion of rain, just his soulful voice and acoustic guitar. The breakout musician kicked off his medley of hits with “Stitches,” the track that got his voice permanently stuck in all of our heads. No complaints there!
Next up was Shawn’s duet with Fifth Harmony‘s Camila Cabello, “I Know What You Did Last Summer.” Both young stars dressed in all black, keeping up with the dramatic vibe, the pair jumped right into their hit song. As things got emotional, a circle of lasers surrounded the pair, and Camila got close to Shawn’s side as they rocked out. So incredible!

As for how the song came to be, well, that’s a pretty simple story. “We were just backstage hanging out. I pulled out my guitar and we were just messing around, not really thinking about writing a song,” Shawn told Rolling Stone in a Nov. 2015 interview.
“It’s about finding out that somebody had been cheating on you, and the song is that moment right before you confront that person where you both know what’s next, but it’s killing the both of you,” Camila added, explaining that she had just found out a boy she was talking to had also been trying to hit up her best friend at the time. Awkward!
