There’s nothing like a Shawn Mendes performance! The Canadian cutie rocked the stage at the MTV EMAs on Nov. 6 with an incredible performance of hit single ‘Mercy.’ We can’t stop swooning over him!
Shawn, 18, started out his performance of “Mercy” on the piano, showing off his incredible skills as a musician. Seriously, how is just 18 years old? The lights in the Rotterdam stadium were out, with all eyes on Shawn. Shawn crooned out to his new hit and eventually grabbed his microphone to belt out the rest of the song. Shawn’s voice sounded absolutely amazing. Performing is so effortless for him!
Shawn arrived on the EMAs red carpet looking adorable, as usual. He wore his signature black leather jacket for the award show in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Shawn loves his fans so much, and he even took pictures with fans on the red carpet before the show. Shawn is just the best.
Shawn was up for four major awards at the 2016 MTV EMAs — Best Male, Best Pop, Biggest Fans, and Best Canadian Act. He was up against Calvin Harris, 32, Justin Bieber, 22, The Weeknd, 26, and Drake, 30, for Best Male, but he won! He was so cute up on stage thanking his fans. He noted that he won the award on his mom’s birthday. Aw!
He recently released his second studio album, Illuminate, in Sept. 2016. The album quickly rose to the top of the charts. Shawn is set to go on a world tour in March 2017. Raise your hand if you can’t wait to buy tickets (or already have)! Shawn is also going to be performing at the 2016 AMAs on Nov. 20. We are more than OK with more Shawn Mendes performances.
