The Weeknd’s halftime show at Super Bowl LV in 2021 was a mesmerizing and surreal experience. Taking center stage at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, the artist put together a choreographed set that was unlike anything we had seen before. With a dazzling array of lights, lasers, and special effects, the Canadian singer transformed the stadium into a futuristic dreamscape of sorts. He played several of his most notable hits, including “Blinding Lights,” “Can’t Feel My Face,” and “Starboy.”

While it may have strayed from the usual halftime performance, it was undoubtedly a spectacle. Even if you weren’t necessarily a fan of the set, you were surely talking about The Weeknd’s performance the following Monday at work.
