The Weeknd showed off his incredible talent during the 2021 Super Bowl halftime show, which was held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
During the performance, Abel Tesfaye – his real name – sang his most famous hits, from “Starboy” to “Blinding Lights“, recreated the aesthetics of “After Hours” but this time moving bandages over the dancers’ faces, he amazed us once again with his vocal extension.
In short, remarkable performance, and many stars applauded the almost 31-year-old artist (he will perform them on February 16) sending him messages of support on social media.
Drake, who helped The Weekend’s career in the early days, posted several videos and photos of half-time in Story, like this one:

“The Weeknd shakes my world,” wrote Sophie Turner. The actress had already proved to be a big fan of hers by supporting him ahead of the 2021 Grammy Awards nomination.
