Shawn Mendes Wins & Melts the Crowd at the 2017 Juno Awards

Shawn Mendes won the Fan Choice Award at the 2017 JUNO Awards, the Canadian version of the Grammys.

Backstage, after the show, Shawn dished about what’s inspiring the music he’s writing for the next album (Drake and Rihanna!) and gave an update on what his new tour is going to be like.

“We haven’t even rehearsed a full show yet, everything is in the blueprints right now,” he explained, “but it’s beautiful. It’s going to be stunning and so much fun and so much crowd interaction.”

Fellow Canadians The Weeknd and Alessia Cara also took home trophies!

Alessia actually beat out Shawn for Pop Album of the Year award for her debut Know-It-All. And The Weeknd won R&B/Soul Recording of the Year for his album Starboy.

Shawn and Alessia both performed, separately. Shawn made the crowd go wile with “Mercy” and Alessia rocked “Stay” and “Scars to Your Beautiful.”
