Ten-time Juno Award nominee Shawn Mendes finally bagged his first win and he has his fans to thank.

The international chart-topping singer from Pickering, Ontario was in the running for 5 2017 Juno Awards including Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for his No.1 record Illuminate.

Shawn walked away with just one out five, but he took the most desired prize of them all, the Juno Fan Choice Award.

Standing out from the stack of trophies rewarding Canadian talent for their grand achievements, the Juno Fan Choice is the only award which the recipient is voted on by the public.

Shawn was up against 9 fellow Canadian nominees, among the pack were superstars Drake, The Weeknd and Justin Bieber who has picked up the award 5 times since 2011.

Casting their votes by using the hashtag JFCShawnMendes on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, Shawn’s fans united and came through for the superstar.

“I’m on twitter all the time. I saw my fans voting like crazy,” Shawn says. “When I win an award like this, we did it together. It can’t get any better than this.”
