International sensation The Weeknd’s much-awaited Super Bowl performance failed to impress the masses as some even went on to call it “boring”.
The pop star headlined the halftime Super Bowl show, racing through his many hits like a gold-focused Olympic relay track team. But his performance on Sunday night was far from victorious.
In his trademark red blazer and sunglasses, The Weeknd kickstarted his 14-minute set, directing his robotic ensemble and singing Call Out My Name. His semi-Michael Jackson-esque nasally sung vocals shone particularly during ‘The Hills’ and ‘Earned It’, however, the performance felt like it was designed for the Billboard Awards or MTV VMAs show, and was definitely not on par with the Super Bowl level.
Fans of the Canadian singer were utterly disappointed with his performance, especially after the release of the music video of ‘Save your tears’, which had several symbolisms directed at the Grammys. Maybe, either creatively or COVID-ly he had restrictions? Who knows, but his overall performance felt restricted and insufficient. Check out his performance below-
