Shawn Mendes made Canada proud at this year’s MTV EMA, taking home three awards for Biggest Fans and the highly coveted titles of Best Song and Best Artist.

Beating out heavy hitters like Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran, and fellow countryman Justin Bieber, Mendes still managed to stay humble.

“The artists in this category are people I’ve looked up to my entire life and to be nominated with them is a crazy honour,” he said while accepting Best Artist.

Swift lead the nominations with five nods but left empty handed, while Sheeran and Lamar, both nominated for four awards, took home one each, for Best Live and Best Video, respectively.
