Shawn Mendes wowed the audience when he performed an acoustic version of his hit song “Stitches” during the Billboard Music Awards 2016 last Sunday. From the way the stage was set up like an interior of the house with some words written on the walls with matching rain effects at the back, it added emotional feeling from the song.

It seems that the 17-year-old Vine hit singer, Shawn Mendes, has silenced everyone in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas when he started singing his hit song “Stitches” during the Billboard Music Awards 2016. Just Jared reported that the young Canadian singer sounded great – stirring the hearts of the shouting crowd.

According to Hollywood Life, the Vine star has finally become a bona fide music sensation after his A-lister performance at BBMAs 2016 on Sunday night. The audience was left in tears during his heart-breaking act because of his voice filled with sentiments. Yet, the rain effects behind him created an additional sad feeling that paused and silenced everyone.

Much appreciation was given to him like Taylor Swift who also became one of the youngest superstars in the music industry. Hollywood Life mentioned that he can even surpass what the “1989” hitmaker earned to Hollywood stardom faster.

With his love for his fans around the globe, he kept on updating them through his active Twitter and Instagram accounts. In fact, hours before the Billboard Music Awards 2016 started, he tweeted his fans earlier saying, “Watch my performance tonight @BBMAs starting at 8pm EST plus have a surprise for you ???? #BBMAs” Just Jared previously mentioned.

Meanwhile, the young singer didn’t mention about relating the emotional BBMA act to Camila Cabello whom he was recently linked to. In an interview, he revealed that he loved her professionally through her music and her talent.

He said, “She’s phenomenal. I love her and she’s so talented. She’s one of the sweetest girls I’ve ever met and super, super-smart.” Though the fans desired to have the sweet couple consider officially dating, but the two kept saying they’re just friends.
