The Weeknd stuns with Super Bowl LV Halftime Show performance – watch

The Super Bowl Halftime Show is one of the most highly anticipated performances every year, and 2021 is no different. 

Gracing the stage of Raymond James Stadium for this year's show, The Weeknd wows the crowd, both live and at home, with a grand performance like no other. Backed by a live band and choir, a legion of men dressed in a red glittery blazer, and a neon skyline, the R&B singer took viewers on a journey through the "absurd culture of Hollywood," narrated by a medley of his top tracks. 

The Weeknd performed his tracks 'Starboy,' 'The Hills,' 'Can’t Feel My Face,' 'I Feel It Coming,' 'Save Your Tears,' 'Earned It,' 'House of Balloons / Glass Table Girls,' and 'Blinding Lights.'


Unlike previous Super Bowl performances, the After Hours act mainly performed from the stands before ending his set on the field. The show comes as the first performance from The Weeknd this year, following his performance at the 2020 American Music Awardsand after speaking out against his Grammy Awards nomination shutout.

Following the performance, fans took to social media to share their praises for The Weeknd. Even Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Toronto Mayor John Troy shared their admiration for the Canadian act online.
