Canadian crooner, Shawn Mendes will make a special debut on the season three premier of The 100. Now, I’ll be frank, I have never even heard of Shawn Mendes, up until now. Please do not crucify me! Must be my age of getting up there. Yet, I am very excited though to seek out more about the guy. But here is the description of the character that the young man (He is 16) will be portraying. The source is from the E! Entertainment website, as I don’t want to take credit for something that is not my own. As a writer, this is out
“He’s (Mendes) playing a scrappy young Ark survivor who gets into a tricky situation and uses his particular talents to get out of it. Seeing as how Mendes has the voice of an angel, we’re pretty sure this “young Ark survivor” might be busting out his pipes onscreen because otherwise that’d be such a waste of Mendes’ talents…meaning The 100 is totally getting musical. And we could not be more excited about it!
“Shawn is a big fan of the show, and reached out to me on Twitter about potentially working together,” executive producer Jason Rothenberg tells E! News. “He’s a very talented artist, and we knew we wanted to do something special and different for the premiere. Shawn gave us a unique opportunity and I can’t wait for our fans to see our collaboration.”

What exactly does this unfold? Will Mendes ‘sing‘ his way out of a tough situation? Only Jason has the answer to that, my friends. You think a show that is so dark and has twisted elements, that it’d have a ‘Glee-like‘ semblance, and I myself, cannot imagine it. But, I digress because if you are like me, anything that even slightly relates to your favourite thing piques your interest and/or excitement. Our patience is certainly being tested as we fans eagerly await the arrival of The 100, which will air mid-season, 2016. Until then, here are some exclusive Twitter photos.
