The Weeknd Performs At Much Music Video AwardsJune 22, 2015
See his performances of “Earned It” and “The Hills.”
It was a big night for The Weeknd at the Much Music Awards.
The Weeknd made Canada proud with his impressive performances in Toronto at the Much Music Video Awards this past weekend. Setting aside his four triumphant wins at the awards show, including Best Director (“Often”), Best Pop Video (“Earned It”), Most Buzzworthy Canadian (“Earned It”), and Video of the Year (“Often”), The Weeknd played his “Fifty Shades of Grey” soundtrack “Earned It” along with his recent single “The Hills.” The pyrotechnics (he later Tweeted “thank you @Much , last night was fire [emojis]”) and dizzying light show were no match for The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) who shined through with his signature live vocals. See the performances below:
Oh, also Drake (glad he could dress up for the occasion) made a surprise appearance at one point in the night.
