OMG! Is Zayn Malik performing with The Weeknd during the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 30? A new video, which claims to be a leaked commercial for the unconfirmed performance, surfaced online Aug. 28, leading us to believe it may actually happen. Watch it here!
Talk about a show-stopping performance. If Zayn Malik, 22, performs with The Weeknd at the Aug. 30 MTV Video Music Awards, as a suspicious new video suggests, viewers of the awards show will be in for a night of epic proportions.
Zayn Malik might be making his live TV debut as a solo artist on Sunday evening. Earlier today, Aug. 28, a video surfaced online, and it appears to be a promotional spot for the VMAs. On YouTube, it’s actually called “ZAYN MALIK /THE WEEKND LEAKED VMA COMMERCIAL.” In the 13-second clip, Zayn’s face appears in front of the typical lime green background, which has been used throughout all of MTV’s promotional spots for the awards show, followed by a plus sign and The Weeknd’s face.
Nothing more is shown except a crowd of people clapping, which is what we’ll be doing — at the very least — if this performance actually happens. HollywoodLife.com reached out to Zayn’s rep, who said “no comment.” So the performance is not confirmed, but we certainly hope it’s true. We also reached out to The Weeknd and MTV’s reps, but they have yet to comment.
A Twitter account dedicated to Zayn updates also tweeted about the alleged performance.
UPDATE || According to an insider from VMAs, Zayn will be performing with The Weekend. THIS IS 100% NOT CONFIRMED. It might happen tho.
