The Weeknd performs “Starboy” at American Music Awards — watch

In support of his forthcoming album of the same name

Despite the fact that his Starboy LP isn’t set to drop till later this week, The Weeknd found himself nominated for a pair of awards at Sunday’s AMAs. He was up for both Favorite Male Artist (Pop/Rock) and Favorite Male Artist (Soul/R&B) (because what are genres anymore?). Abel Tesfaye showed why he deserved those accolades with a rendition of the album’s title track live on the AMAs stage. Watch the replay below.
