On Friday, the Pickering, Ontario, native played to a sold-out crowd of 55,000 (the largest show to date) but it was Camila Cabello’s appearance that had everyone talking.

Mendes brought his collaborator-turned-girlfriend on stage to perform their hit “Señorita”, which was topped off with a steamy onstage kiss.

Fans could hardly contain their excitement.

Not only did he perform his own songs, Mendes covered Whitney Houston’s “I Want To Dance With Somebody” and Coldplay’s “Fix You”.

The singer’s trainer Josh had a moment in the spotlight when he proposed to his girlfriend. Mendes then dedicated “Fallin’ All In You” to the loved-up couple.

The singer also thanked fellow Canadian Alessia Cara, who opened for him on tour calling her “the most incredibly smart and talented, incredibly caring unbelievable person [who] gets on stage and rocks that show every single night.”

Cara had a few words for everyone as she finished up her set.

“Before I sing this next song, I just want to thank everybody that was part of this tour from tech, my whole crew, everybody, Shawn, everybody on this tour has been so incredible, thank you for opening up the stage for us,” she said while holding back tears. “I’m sorry. I’m super-emotional.”

When it was all over, Mendes was understandably awed by the love he received performing in front of his hometown crowd.

“It’s taken me 24 hours be able to wrap my head around how breathtaking playing in Toronto was… I’ve never experienced something so moving in my entire life,” he wrote on Instagram alongside an array of photos from the show.

“76 shows done & I just want to say thank you with all of my heart to every single one of you,” he continued. “I want you all to feel so proud of this tour… this is just as much yours as it is mine so look around and see what you’ve done! I truly feel so connected with you guys when I’m on stage, it’s my favourite thing in the world and we get to feel magic every single night. I love you the most.”
