“Thank you so much,” said Mendes, collecting the award for best male from model Jourdan Dunne at Rotterdam’s Ahoy arena and dedicating it to his “incredible fans worldwide.”

“You guys are outstanding,” said the singer who also used the occasion to wish happy birthday to his mum to loud cheers from the crowd. Earlier in the show, Mendes performed a stirring rendition of his hit “Mercy” from within a inverted holographic pyramid, which slowly lifted to reveal the 18 year-old seated at a piano. He also triumphed in the Canadian category of the worldwide act prize.
