Shawn Mendes Strums His Heart Out on 'There's Nothing Holding Me Back' at 2017 AMAs

For this second trip to the AMAs main stage, at Sunday night's (Nov. 19) 2017 American Music Awards in Los Angeles Shawn Mendes said it all with his song selection: "There's Nothing Holding Me Back". 

The 19 year-old singer -- wearing a black shirt and matching pants, his hair swooped up into a pompadour -- plucked out the soul-stirring tune's familiar groove on his acoustic guitar.

With a spare set that kept the focus firmly on his swoon-inducing vocals, Mendes had the crowd up on their feet singing along to his infectious hit -- including apparent super fan Keith Urban, who clearly knew every word. Mendes then sent those true believers into a frenzy of shrieks when he wandered out to a second mic stand in in the middle of the floor for a big finish to the number.
