Ellen TV: Shawn Mendes “Life of the Party”
Ellen DeGeneres welcomed Shawn Mendes, who rose to fame after posting Vine videos of himself singing. He now has 3 million followers and a number one song on iTunes. Shawn Mendes, just 16 years old, was on the show to perform that song, “Life Of The Party.”
His voice is incredible and when paired with the guitar in his hands, he made a fan out of me. Ellen sent everyone in the audience home with a copy of his CD, The Shawn Mendes EP.

Ellen then sat down with Shawn Mendes and shared that she had quite a few of his fans in her audience, so she wanted to call two of them down. Ellen called out the names Alexa and Andrea, and two girls sitting in the front row immediately grabbed each other in excitement before jumping up and walking on stage to join Ellen and Shawn.
The girls shared that they have seen Shawn’s six-second Vine videos, and when Ellen asked what they liked about them, they said “everything.” They said he’s really talented and really inspiring.

Ellen then said the two girls had six seconds to tell everyone why they love Shawn Mendes so much. “He’s kind of perfect and talented at singing and I love him so much” said the first girl. The next girl froze and just laughed when Ellen gave her six seconds. “Alright, well you still get to go,” Ellen said to her.
