The Weeknd Gives a Dizzying Tour of His Career During the Super Bowl Halftime Show

From 2011’s House of Balloons to tracks from 2020’s After Hours, musician hit all the marks

The Weeknd headlined the Super Bowl LV halftime show with a career-spanning, sequin-bombed medley of his biggest hits — from songs from 2011’s House of Balloons to tracks from 2020’s After Hours.

Abel Tesfaye kicked things off in a sleek convertible in front of a Vegas-themed backdrop. A choir with red eyes (a nod to Daft Punk) parted to reveal the man himself — magically — in front of a glowing background in a red, sequined suit before he launched into “Starboy.” The choir shed their masks for a snippet of “The Hills” before segueing into “Can’t Feel My Face,” backed by a crew of doubles decked out in red suits and gauze masks in a trippy hall of mirrors.
