Shawn Mendes came to Singapore prepared to impress. Big time.
Like most polished pop stars at the top of their game, the 21-year-old wunderkind gave fans bang for their buck, but we don’t need to elaborate about how he was delivering hit after hit with aplomb at his second gig in Singapore, where he performed to a sold-out crowd at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Oct 4.
What we need to talk about is the Canadian heartthrob’s ability to make every screaming tween/teen girl feel like they were the only girl in the room. Yes, ladies and gents and chaperoning parents in the crowd, he worked the room like the slick, suave male lead in a rom-com — a PG-rated one, of course. From the moment he strutted on stage to the finale when he was blowing kisses 105 minutes later, Shawn the smooth operator hit all the right notes, said all the right things, and wore the right clothes (no need for outfit changes) to impress the Mendes Army (aka his fans). Here’s how.
