This classic show is making a very welcome return — MTV Unplugged

Surprisingly, Mendes and Sheeran have yet to collaborate on new music - but after their latest duet, and the unbelievable response it received from fans, we think they should consider hitting the studio together to collaborate immediately!

Mendes' episode will be filmed in Los Angeles' Theater at Ace Hotel. RollingStone reports that now is the chance for this generation to experience the show and bring back the moments of "Unplugged", as said by MTV's SVP of Music and Executive in Charge of Music for Unplugged, Armani Duncan. Mendes is popular for his songs, "Treat Me Better" and "Something Big".

One of the finest examples of this was MTV Unplugged - a much-loved show which allowed bands and artists to scale back their performances in order to give viewers an alternative perspective on their sound. Among the artists to appear on the program were Nirvana, Jay-Z, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Miley Cyrus, Tony Bennett, Mariah Carey, Katy Perry, Lil Wayne, Adele and Florence + The Machine.

The show started in 1989, and since then has produced worldwide audiences. So, who showed up you ask?

Mendes told Variety he was excited to be a part of the show after seeing Pearl Jam's 1992 session.

Both Mendes and Sheeran later posted photos from their successful duet. Presumably young people know who he is. The series is created by Jim Burns and Robert Small. Shawn also won awards in the categories of "Best Male" and "Best Worldwide Act" at the 2016 MTV EMAs, and has been nominated in the category of "Best Pop" at the 2017 VMAs. He joins other artists in the category such as Ed Sheeran for "Shape Of You", Harry Styles for "Sign Of The Times", Fifth Harmony ft.
