Shawn Mendes Makes Grammys Performance Debut with Surprise Appearance from Miley Cyrus


🖤

Surprise! Shawn Mendes made his Grammys performance debut alongside Miley Cyrus.

The talented pair teamed up to perform Mendes’ hit single “In My Blood” together on stage at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday.

Mendes started the performance solo while playing the piano before Cyrus came out to a roaring round of applause to help finish the song.

The pair is also expected to release a single together on Cyrus’ new album, due out later this year.

At the show, Mendes, 20, is nominated in two categories: song of the year for “In My Blood” and pop vocal album for his self-titled third studio album, which was released in May.

On Thursday, the “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart” singer, 26, posted a black-and-white photo of her and Mendes wearing matching black leather jackets with Parton’s face printed on the back. The jacket Mendes wore featured Parton’s iconic 1978 cover of Playboy.

“This could be the year for the real thing,” Cyrus captioned the photo, quoting the lyrics to Parton’s 1983 duet with Kenny Rogers, “Islands in the Stream” ahead of the duo’s MusiCares performance.

When Cyrus posted a photo from her Grammys rehearsal earlier in the week, fans were quick to point out that Mendes’ guitar was in the background, as well as some equipment marked with his name, and suspected that a duet from the two was on the way.

“Gram Gram rehearsals! Performing this Sunday at the @recordingacademy!” Cyrus captioned the photo she shared on Wednesday.
