After Miley Cyrus’ unforgettable Saturday Night Live premiere performance, The Weeknd, 25, had to do something big. Well, he did just that when Nicki Minaj, 32, stepped out onto the stage to perform with him on the Oct. 10 episode. Watch them perform their new version of “The Hills” now!
The Weeknd started out solo, easing into his hit song. About halfway through the performance, that’s when Nicki made her appearance, and the crowd went wild. She started rapping her verse, slaying the performance.
Nicki looked gorgeous in a cleavage-baring mini dress. She playfully danced throughout the performance. The Weeknd and Nicki had so much fun together on the SNL stage. At one point, he twirled her around — so cute! He even bowed down to her once the crowd started their applause. She is the Queen Nicki after all!
After SNL, Nicki posted a video of the performance on Instagram. She captioned the photo, “Lol I had so much fun performing on SNL. They’re always a pleasure to be around. Thank u, Abel – The Hills Remix is now on iTunes. #MakeSomeNoiseNewYork.”
Their rendition of The Weeknd’s song is now an official remix. Eminem was also featured on another remix of the song.
