Watch: The Weeknd Rocks the Super Bowl LV Halftime Show

Published: Sunday 7th Feb 2021 by Rashad

‘Starboy’ singer The Weeknd shined brighter than ever Sunday (February 7) when he rocked Tampa’s Raymond Jones Stadium as the headliner for the Super Bowl LV halftime show.

Drawing on 10 years worth of hits including the likes of ‘Can’t Feel My Face,’ ‘Earned It,’ and – of course – tunes from his top-selling 2020 ‘After Hours’ album, the ‘Blinding Lights’ star dazzled viewers with a jaw-dropping array of pyrotechnics and cutting edge technology.

Joining the hallowed halls of history-making headliners Michael and Janet Jackson, Madonna, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Prince, and many more, look inside to see how the 30-year-old handled the stage of the biggest spectacle on Earth.

      I had me a GREAT night and it isn’t over yet lol 🤳🏽 Shout out to The Weeknd, Tom Brady, Gronk, Jason Pierre-Paul, Bruce Arians, GM Jason Licht and the whole Buccaneers 🏴‍☠️ 🥳 I know some of y’all rather see sweaty ass weaves and cooochiie poppin in gymnastics outfits with sparkles on them 😂 That’s played ALL the way out if you ask me! I LOVE the flavor Abel brought to the halftime show! This was perfect to me 🎶🤳🏽🏈 🤩 💯💋

      • Fancy BISH 💎 February 8, 2021

        Now I can see why he doesn’t date flavourless black gals. Fancy BISH has spoken.

    • Fancy BISH 💎 February 8, 2021

      Yaas ✅🤩 I know the traditionalists want to see the tittty sweating, mean mugging divas dancing up a storm in 20 inch heels , but I like things more chill and relaxed sometimes lmaooooo 🤳🏽 Like, I don’t need to see clothes ripping off and sliding down poles lol 👀 Out of breath divas smiling at the end like they did something special about to collapse 🤣

  4. Gee February 7, 2021

    The Weeknd stayed true to his artistry, and he did what he needed to do.

    • Fancy BISH 💎 February 8, 2021

  6. Check Ur Lipsticks B4 U Come 4 Me! February 7, 2021

    For a stadium
    Vocally he’s just not there not commanding
    Flat one note
    Conclusion if it’s not a diva/female artist
    Keep it
    He did ok

    Not the best but it’s quite good. Way better than maroon 5, black eyed peas & JT

    • Fancy BISH 💎 February 7, 2021

      Fancy CLOWN is was shít like your mommas stinky pùssy, you know that Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5 both done a better job than this joker.

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) February 7, 2021

        “It was”, not “is was” dummy. Do I need to proof read all of ur shít?

      • Fancy BISH 💎 February 7, 2021

        Nancy CLOWN you can’t say sh|t after you typed GB instead of GP you dumb pile of sh|t.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) February 7, 2021

      I was a little disappointed that he didn’t perform in your eyes with Kenny G😩

      • Fancy BISH 💎 February 8, 2021

        Is that the song your daddy plays when he forces himself on you?

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) February 8, 2021

        That’s your song named “In your Ass” when you stick a cucumber right inside your nasty messy ass.

      • Fancy BISH 💎 February 8, 2021

        Awwww did I hit a nerve now Nancy CLOWN 🤡 is having a panic attack of flash backs of its daddy on top of it and it loving every moment of it.🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿

    • Mary February 8, 2021

      it was one of the most borring peformances that i ever saw its not becoming better anymore

  8. February 7, 2021

    nice.

  9. The Last Days February 7, 2021

    No soul…nothing smooth about it.

  10. Fancy BISH 💎 February 7, 2021

    This has to be the worst Super Bowl Halftime performance EVER in history, it had no flavour what so ever he was boring to watch and his singing was way off.

  11. SuxMyCockiness February 7, 2021

    He picked all the right songs, I’ll give him that. Everything else I found lackluster 😑 You have all these dance ready songs and barely any choreography, and all the weird singing into the camera was annoying. He makes great music but unfortunately is just a boring performer. Zero showmanship.

  12. Clarks0o0ñ February 7, 2021

    If DAP was a performance this would be it

  13. Jimarlo February 7, 2021

    Errybody probably caught c**** 🙈 Good show tho ✨👌

  14. Pat February 7, 2021

    Solid production and vocals

  15. Meme February 7, 2021

    Given the limitations and issue with audio…he did what he was suppose to do. After this performance I really have a new found love for the weekend. Can we give it up for the fact that he is the ONLY male artist giving us artistry and actual art behind the music. Is approach to everything from visuals, to performance, to clothing…all is so thought out and I can appreciate that. No other male artist is doing this. Also I really forgot how many hits this man have.

    • Clarks0o0ñ February 7, 2021

      Gurl, the way you’re lying thru ur teeth. Lol

      He was boring
      He has the hit tho, but this show was boring.

    • Tori February 8, 2021

      What does anything of that have to do with giving the worst SB performance in years? And the “artistry” he’s given is pretty basic and and has been done, the only difference is he has an audience and a bigger budget. He’s giving all tjis “artistry” and yet no one actually past the actual music itself, which has yet again already been done. So you said all of this to say nothing. We should celebrate for doing what has been done or because he has a budget?

      • Meme February 8, 2021

        Please tell me who and when has the music The Weeknd makes been done? WHEN? This isn’t Bruno we are talking about, this is The Weeknd. His music sounds like nothing no one else present or future has done. His music should be in a genre of its own called The Weeknd, because it’s nothing we’ve heard before. Hater!

    • eric February 8, 2021

      @Meme. You’re giving him too much credit. Usher wore the blazer and MJ wore the jackets, gloves and dress shoes before The Weeknd. His red & black theme and horror elements all come from MJ’s Thriller era when he wore red/black with tapered pants. Even Bruno Mars performed in tapered pants and dress shoes before The Weeknd. Michael’s solo sound pre-90s can be heard all throughout The Weekend’s music.

  16. London+lad February 8, 2021

    He has a couple of bops, but he showed me why I can’t listen to a whole album of his. His one note whining pitch is an acquired taste. Not for me, but don’t knock him for trying

  17. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) February 8, 2021

    Trashy bish where the f u c k u are hiding now? Thought u said Abel has flavor. I’m telling u he only has baby ass smell flavor 💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿 The performance was bad bad bad 🤳🏿🤳🏿🤳🏿 I rather watch Fergie singing jazz version national anthem😂🤣😂

    • Carlitos February 8, 2021

      iTunes is the CD version of the music industry now.

      • fufu February 8, 2021

        It was entertaining, but something was missing for me. Im a solid XO fan though.

        For a start, the music should have been louder.

        I would have wanted smoother transitions. Lady Gaga SB had perfect transitions and each track had its moment. The Weeknd music didnt feel synchronised.

        I wanted more songs beyond just his pop hits. At least he gave us HOB

        It didnt have enough shock factor. Knowing the Weeknd he could have gone way more hardcore seeing his visuals throughout his discography. PG I guess.

        All in all it was an okay delivery. He should discover more of himself as a performer.

        6/10

  18. XYZ February 8, 2021

    I love his music, but this was messy

  19. XYZ February 8, 2021

    Somehow the boys are just not killing it

  20. Charli+Cheer+Up February 8, 2021

    Love his discography and voice but still nowhere near as good as Bruno Mars, Beyonce, J.Lo, Shakira and Gaga’s performance. IMO he shoulda asked for some artist collabs to make his halftime show more exciting to watch

  21. Shayla Queen 👑 February 8, 2021

    So BORING, basic and FLAVORLESS!

  22. Adonis February 8, 2021

    I don’t know, voice didn’t wow me, sounded nervous to me. I do not understand what 7 million went on? He has nothing on JLo & Shakira. Shakira made last year SB halftime show with the Arabian theme was amazing, really gave the bland folks something to ponder about.

  23. RnBee February 8, 2021

    The vocals were a bit :-/, but he has the hits. It was a cinematic experience. I enjoyed it.

  24. Keith February 8, 2021

    The performance was not good because its foundation, THE MUSIC, isn’t good. His 80’s British synth pop redux makes for good background noise but has ZERO soul. He was much better musically as an indie artist. The performance of the night was HER’s “America the Beautiful”…

  25. Slick February 8, 2021

    S*** was boring asf

  26. china February 22, 2021

    Disappointed that the NFL chose that no-talent soy boy over Queen + Adam Lambert! Why does the Super Bowl favour these talentless auto-tuned cucks over established legends?
