The Weeknd hit the 2016 Grammy stage to perform his smash hit "Can't Feel My Face" and a slowed down version of "In The Night," off his hit album Beauty Behind The Madness. The Toronto native picked up the Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album for his second album during the pre-show, and is also nominated for Album of The Year.
The Weeknd began his performance with a strong rendition of "Can't Feel My Face" on the main stage — and showed off a few new dance moves — but the transition into the Michael Jackson-esque track "In The Night" was a bit underwhelming. Backed only by a piano and cello on the normally uptempo track, The Weeknd's vocals were strong, but the performance felt disjointed. That could be due to the fact that The Weeknd was originally slated to perform with Lauryn Hill during tonight's telecast, but the ex-Fugees singer seemingly pulled out at the last minute after rehearsing with the R&B star this morning.
