The Weeknd has done it again! He continued his streak of epic performances at the American Music Awards with an incredible rendition of his hit ’The Hills’ and had everyone from Meghan Trainor to Wiz Khalifa on their feet!
Abel Tesfaye, better known as R&B star The Weeknd, sure knows how to put on a show. The 25-year-old singer rocked yet another major stage at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Nov. 22 with an awesome performance of “The Hills”! Between his on-point vocals and amazing theatrics, The Weeknd certainly proved that he should always be a performer for award shows!
Working the stage with ease, The Weeknd tromped around in an all-black outfit and white sneakers while belting out his head-bopping tune. On top of The Weeknd sounding and looking awesome himself, he was completely surrounded by flames the whole time — talk about bringing the performance to a mind-blowing level! As if the performance wasn’t amazing enough, he totally nailed his falsetto parts. Can you say flawless?
2015 has been a major breakout year for The Weeknd, as he has gotten the chance to perform on some pretty incredible stages including the AMAs’ Microsoft Theater. After giving the first live performance of his chart-topping hit, “Can’t Feel My Face,” at the MTV Video Music Awards, The Weeknd has rocked the Saturday Night Live stage as well as performing alongside some beautiful models at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! And considering he took home the AMA for Favorite Soul/R&B Album for Beauty Behind The Madness, it seems his year just keeps getting better!
Even with all of the shows The Weeknd has been on this year, we have to say that his AMA performance may have been his best yet. Now that we’ve watched The Weeknd absolutely crush so many huge performances, we can’t wait to see where he’ll take the stage next!
