Camila Cabello thought ex-boyfriend Shawn Mendes was singing on The Voice on Tuesday’s episode when contestant Tanner Hauer covered his song Mercy.
The 25-year-old new trainer looked stunned when she realized Tanner, 29, of Huntington Beach, Calif., was performing the 2016 hit song for Shawn, 24.
Camilla, who couldn’t see Tanner while he was performing in the blind auditions, asked, “Is that… is that Sean over there?”.

Tanner continued singing and Camila commented, “I thought it was Sean.”
“Awesome,” said fellow trainer Gwen Stefani, 52.
Gwen, Blake Shelton and John Legend pressed Tanner’s buttons.
Camila refused to turn around, but was the first to congratulate Tanner on being on The Voice.

Camila admitted: “I was like, ‘Is Sean on stage now?'” ”.
“I looked like him,” agreed John, 43.
‘Wow. You know him best, Tanner said, so that’s cool.
John Legend agreed, saying, “I looked like him.”
I know him better than anyone in this room. But the reason I didn’t turn around was because I felt like you looked a lot like him. He clearly has a great voice. Camila said I love this song.
She added, “But I’d be curious, when you choose your coach, to kind of set yourself apart.”
I really respect Sean as an artist and see myself in this aisle, but I absolutely love what you’re saying. Thank you very much. I’ll try to be more discerning, Tanner told Camilla.

“I was deep in his lane,” Camila said, laughing.
‘Hey! Hey!, John exclaimed. ‘well now.’
“Whoa. We heard it,” joked Blake, 46.
“I was in his lane deep,” Camila said, laughing.
Tanner chose a fellow Orange Gwynne County native to be his coach.
‘Oh, my God! Orange County Power! yelled Gwen before handing Tanner the team’s jacket.
Camila and Shawn started dating in July 2019.

They collaborated on “Señorita” which was released in June 2019 after they previously joined forces on 2015’s “I Know What You Did Last Summer”.
Camila and Shawn announced their separation last November.
Tanner said before the audition that he was excited to know Camilla would be a coach, but had already chosen Mercy by Shawn for the audition.
It’s funny to think I’m singing a Shawn Mendes song by Camila Cabello. “So I hope you like it,” Tanner laughed.
