Who did The Weeknd wink at during his Super Bowl LV 2021 performance? Fans say it will ‘make your p***y throb’
The singer opened the show with ‘Starboy’ and wrapped it up with ‘Blinding Lights’
Fans were eager to watch The Weeknd’s Super Bowl LV Halftime performance since its announcement weeks ago. The award-winning crooner took to the big stage of this year’s biggest sporting event on February 7, Sunday, where he performed his medley of hits backed by choir, violinists and masked backup dancers.
The 30-year-old singer-songwriter donned a red suit for the big day. Yes, the same one which he has been wearing at all his performances since last year. The Weeknd decided to open the show with his hit single ‘Starboy’ and culminated the concert by taking over the field along with a large group of bandaged dancers on the song ‘Blinding Lights’ with an accompanying choreography. Interestingly, the pop star, whose real name Abel Tesfaye, was soon trending on the Internet when he winked during his performance and got everyone talking about it.
