Second up on the red carpet backstage at Q102 Jingle Ball with Raph was none other than our FAV, Shawn Mendes! Shawn also sort of... maybe... promised he'd be year at next year's Jingle Ball too, so we're gonna hold him to that! You can watch the full interview below!
Raph couldn't help but bring up 2016's Jingle Ball when Shawn hilariously shoved a bunch of peeps in his mouth (and Shawn hilariously didn't even realize that's what they were called!)
More seriously, though, Shawn talked about how he's grown not only musically but as a person in the past few years, saying, "Oh my god, yeah, like in the most unbelievable way. The funny thing is that I still get on stage and play Stitches with the same amount of love that I play In My Blood with. They're just from two different times. This show I actually remember being one of the biggest moments in my career."
Just saying: Shawn says that our Jingle Ball was one of the biggest moments of his career. We're blushing!
On his holiday plans BTW? Shawn told Raph, "I go home to see my sister and my family -- and just be super Canadian! I don't know even know that means! I really just do it!"
And his Christmas wish this year? Shawn said, "I don't know, I'm just excited to go home and hang with my family, I miss those guys! Then just come out in 2019 and just have an incredible year."
We know you will, Shawn!
