2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show: The Weeknd to perform
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, airing Dec. 5 on CBS, heads to Paris this year and they’re bringing their favorite Starboy along.
EW is excited to announce that for the second year in a row, The Weeknd will perform during the taped event. The singer, born Abel Tesfaye, also dates model Bella Hadid, who is walking in the show for her first time. (Hadid’s older sister, Gigi, has also been confirmed for the catwalk.)
The Weeknd won’t be the first artist to perform while his significant other struts. Maroon 5 was featured in the 2011 show while frontman Adam Levine’s then-girlfriend, Anne V, donned wings. (Levine is now married to Behati Prinsloo, also a VS Angel. She has said that she will most likely not appear this year as the couple celebrated the birth of their first child in September.) And Seal performed in 2007 when he was married to Heidi Klum.
Last year, The Weeknd performed “Can’t Feel My Face” and “In The Night,” which you can relive below. His third studio LP, Starboy, is slated for release on Nov. 25. Along with the title track, the 26-year-old has also shared “False Alarm” off the set. Earlier this week, he announced a world tour in support of the new music. That trek kicks off in February.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs Dec. 5 at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
