Shawn Mendes  blew everyone away with this powerful performance of his new single, ‘Mercy‘ … not to mention, it’s probably the best live version ever!

Shawn performed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Jan. 4 and what a way to start 2017!

@ShawnMendes was here to perform his song "Mercy," which as you may know is French for "thank you.”

On top of everything else, Shawn replaced HIMSELF on the Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks Chart. As ‘Ruin’ stood steadily at #1, ‘Mercy’ took over and now has the #1 spot.



The only other artists who ever accomplished this on Billboard are Justin Bieber and Zayn.
