Shawn Mendes broke some hearts on Thursday night when he announced he had to pull out of the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball stop in San Jose. The last-minute cancellation came on doctor’s orders that prohibited Shawn from performing or traveling.
The bad news might have a silver lining for Shawn though, as he got a shoutout from his role model, John Mayer. John replied to Shawn’s announcement tweet with a joke that would’ve fit right in with the #RoastShawn hashtag. Zedd also sent some love Shawn’s way; however, it was a collaborator that Shawn and Zedd have in common who had to pick up the slack.
Hailee Steinfeld shared a pic of herself headed to San Jose as she stepped in for Shawn. The Chainsmokers took over Shawn’s headlining spot, but Hailee helped fill time for the show.
Check out Shawn’s announcement, John’s joke and more updates from Thursday’s show below.
