It's pretty well-known that Shawn Mendes fans are a force of nature, but even that didn't prepare us for the sheer volume of screams the 19-year-old was met with as he stepped on stage.

At an intimate performance at the Star Theatre in Singapore, Mendes opened the show with "There's Nothing Holding Me Back" from his latest album, Illuminate, echoing around the theatre and sent fans into a frenzy with his infectious energy and a backing 4-piece band.

Mendes brought in the strings, the grand piano and held it on his own, too, for "Three Empty Words," and encouraged the crowd for a singalong to the emotional "Roses." He drove the audience WILD when he decided to hop off the stage after shredding on his electric guitar as fans echoed "Do I Ever Cross Your Mind" over and over with his eighth song of the night, "Ruin."  

Shawn Mendes owns his rendition of Ed Sheeran's "Castle on the Hill" with a smooth and effortless transition to "Life of the Party" from his debut studio album Handwritten. That was not the only cover Mendes has sung. He also performed a beautiful cover of "Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon right before his finale song, "Treat You Better," which had Mendes removing his in-ear monitor ­– and taking it all in as fans roared their hearts out and sang along with it. It was one of the highlights of the night – defo!

Shawn Mendes' live show will have you head over heels with his characteristic charm and energetic stage presence. He took the stage like an absolute seasoned pro and conquered the crowd of more than 5,000, like, effortlessly – all at the age of 19 years old. Have we said that already? He is nineteen!

This year, Shawn Mendes begun his globetrotting Illumination world tour for his 13-track album, kicked off our show’s return, MTV Unplugged, and bagged home 4 awards at the recent MTV EMA 2017 — all in all, a stellar year for Shawn.
