See the Weeknd Debut New Song ‘Scared to Live’ With Oneohtrix Point Never on ‘SNL’

Abel Tesfaye – in his third visit to SNL – also performed “Blinding Lights,” appeared in “On the Couch” musical sketch and provided new “Weeknd Update”

The Weeknd debuted his new song “Scared to Live” with Oneohtrix Point Never and appeared in a musical sketch during the singer’s Saturday Night Live musical guest spot.

Abel Tesfaye — donning the red suit, black leather gloves and bloody face that’s been the motif of his upcoming album After Hours — first performed his single “Blinding Lights.” The Weeknd’s late-night spots this cycle have all been fourth wallbreaking performances, and the SNL guest spot continued that trend with a mirrored stage that often reflected the SNL crew and audience.
