From his self-titled EP but first a chat if we can hear each other talk because you have a lot of very enthusiastic fans here. You uploaded a vine of yourself singing Justin Bieber's "As long as you love me." The next morning it had 10,000 hits. What was that moment like? I thought it was -- I didn't know what was happening on my screen. There it is. Look at you there and look at you now. Your new EP went to number one in 37 minutes when it hit itunes. Yes. You're on tour. You went from recording songs in your bedroom to performing in front of thousands of fans. Yeah. Adoring fans. Have you adjusted to that yet? Not at all.

Your fans have asked questions via vine. You saw one earlier. Let's replay it from laura shellenberg. So you can answer it. Hey, SHAWN, I was just won wondering what your idea of a perfect date is. Ah, I don't know. Probably keep it simple. Maybe go to dinner and go to a beach or asking. All right. They all like that. Your fans love it. Also we've got one from gagrianna Walter, I think we have her right here. What's your favorite part of performing in gropts of all your fans.

The next one we have from Bella Navarro. Hi, SHAWN. Dinner -- It was incredible.
