Opening the VMA’s was Justin Bieber who performed ‘Holy’ before busting into his duet with Shawn Mendes! Right out of the gate, another Canadian took the stage.
The Weeknd was a big winner this year at the Video Music Awards, but his wins and pretty cool performance from downtown LA didn’t come without some confusion!
The Weeknd, sporting a large white face bandage?
He gave no reason for his appearance, which confused fans on social media, but it appeared to be an artistic choice that started with his March album cover where he sported a bloodied and broken nose. The Weeknd will headline the Super Bowl halftime show in February!
Other highlights at the VMA’s, the event being hosted by actress Taraji P. Henson and featured musical performances from Megan Thee Stallion, BTS, Lewis Capaldi, and new mom Katy Perry.
AMA winners included Taylor Swift for “Artist of the Year,” BTS for “Favorite Social Artist,” and Dua Lipa for “Song of the Year” and “New Artist of the Year.”
