Shawn Mendes Reveals What Taylor Swift Taught Him About Performing

Shawn Mendes is all smiles on stage as he attends Billboard’s 2018 Live Music Summit Panels on Tuesday (November 13) at the Montage Beverly Hills in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Shawn also revealed what close pal Taylor Swift taught him about performing live on stage in front of crowds of fans. Before their first show during her 1989 World Tour, Taylor asked Shawn if he was nervous – and he said he was because he was terrified about messing.

Taylor then explained to him that everyone in the audience was there to have fun – and that nobody was there to judge.

“Since that moment, I really learned what it meant to be a performer,” Shawn shared. “It wasn’t about being perfect; it was about enjoying it. … She went onstage every night to have fun and enjoy it, because that’s what a live show is about.”
