The Weeknd’s Super Bowl LV Halftime Show is now available to watch online.
During last night’s Super Bowl LV (7th), which saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeat the Kansas City Chiefs, Canadian artist The Weekend performed during the game’s coveted 15-minute Halftime slot.
Joining legendary Halftime acts such as Beyoncé, Madonna, Prince and Stevie Wonder, The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, performed solo, backed up by a choir, band and dancers.
Against a city skyline set, Tesfaye performed to 25,000 people – as well as 30,000 cutouts — some of his more recent hits like ‘Blinding Lights’ and ‘Save Your Tears’, as well as a throwback in the form of his 2011 track, ‘House Of Balloons’.
You can watch the full performance below via YouTube.
Last year, The Weeknd teamed up with Calvin Harris for their collaborative single, ‘Over Now’.
In June, The Weeknd urged major labels and streaming services “to go big and public” with donations to racial equality organisations amidst ongoing Black Lives Matter protests.
