The BRIT Awards 2016 saw killer performances from Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Rihanna and more, but it all built to the one-two finishing punch of The Weeknd and Adele. Mr. Tesfaye, having just done "In the Night" and "Can't Feel My Face" at the GRAMMYs, decided to dust off his mega hit "The Hills" for the night.
And damn did he dust it off. He showed up in low-key all-black attire with three backing musicians atop big platforms, performing his Beauty Behind the Madness single in front of giant staticky screens. The Weeknd's been performing at basically every award show since the VMAs last August, but he manages to keep it super interesting.
