Ummm, we are totally here for this! Shawn Mendes and Niall Horan gave us a taste of what we can look forward to in their upcoming collaboration by duetting on Shawn’s hit ‘Mercy’ backstage at the American Music Awards — and you have to see the video!
Niall Horan, 23, and Shawn Mendes’ bromance is officially our new favorite thing! The guys hung out backstage at the American Music Awards on Nov. 20, and even had an impromptu jam session. While the 18-year-old played guitar, they both sung along to his song, “Mercy,” and it sounded like absolute perfection!
And if you’re loving the mix of these two voices together, you might not have to wait long to hear more — there’s a collaboration coming! News that the pair would be working together first surfaced in Feb. 2016, but in September, Shawn officially confirmed that there’s something happening.
“Definitely, yes,” the teenager responded when asked if he’d be working with Niall. “He’s awesome. I’ve been talking to him for a long time, but it’s annoying because I’ll be in London like, ‘Niall, I’m here,’ and he’ll be like, ‘Just landed in L.A!’ When I get a second I want to write with him a bunch.”
Meanwhile, the AMAs were a big night for the singers, as they each took the stage separately to perform. Hmm, if all goes well, maybe we’ll see them doing a duet like this onstage at next years’s show!? Either way, we’re glad they were able to find some downtime to bro out and play some music together on what was otherwise a majorly hectic night. We can’t wait to see what they put out when they finally get into the studio!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Shawn and Niall duetting? Are you excited to hear their actual collaboration?
