Just two days after dropping Beauty Behind the Madness, The Weeknd gave standout single “Can’t Feel My Face” its television debut with a performance at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards.
It marked the first televised performance of the single and the first VMA performance for the Toronto-born singer, but none of that was obvious on Sunday night. (It literally brought Video Vanguard recipient Kanye West to his feet.)
Oh, Taylor Swift and her pals liked it too.
The Weeknd was up for two Moonmen at the show, for Best Male Video for “Earned It” and best collaboration for “Love Me Harder” with Ariana Grande.
