At just 20 years old, Shawn Mendes has achieved more than many artists twice his age. As far as awards go, the GRAMMYs are inarguably the most acclaimed, and it looks like the young singer has just scooped up his first two nominations ever.
The long list of nominees were released today, and as we all skimmed through the well-regarded artists, I'm sure everyone's eyes lit up to see Shawn's name not just once, but twice!
