The Weeknd performed his hit single “The Hills” at the 2015 American Music Awards. For his AMAs take on the track, the R&B singer pulled much from his fiery tour performance of “The Hills.” Flanked by a pyrotechnic-heavy stage design, the Weeknd delivered an exciting rendition of his sexy hit that’s been dominating the charts. By the end of the song, nearly the entire stage had been set aflame around him.
Abel Tesfaye released his sophomore album Beauty Behind the Madness in late August following the success of its singles “Often,” “The Hills” and “Can’t Feel My Face.” The album — which features guest appearances from Ed Sheeran and Lana Del Rey as well as production and songwriting credits from Kanye West and Max Martin — hit Number One on the Billboard 200 while “The Hills” is currently holding the top spot on the Hot 100. Earlier during the American Music Awards, Beauty Behind the Madness was named Favorite Soul/R&B Album.
Currently, the singer is in the middle of his massive Madness fall tour. His diverse set of openers include Travi$ Scott, Banks and Halsey.
