The Weeknd Performs ‘Earned It’ at 2015 Juno Awards [VIDEO]
There's no question that the Weeknd is enjoying the success of his recent hit, "Earned It," off the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. The Canadian crooner performed the seductive ballad at the 2015 Juno Aweards Sunday (March 15).
Rocking a black suit and a white button-up, the 25-year-old hit every note perfectly and meshed well with the large, booming sound provided by the small orchestra and pianist.
The singer's falsetto delivery was also on point. He didn't lose any of the fullness in his voice despite the notes being extremely high.
Lyrically, the Weeknd couldn't have enunciated the words any clearer or sold the song any better. The TV audience soaked it all up. Screams, claps and cheers could be heard loudly throughout the crowd.
The singer also gets credit for holding down a huge stage all by himself. There were no props, back-up performers or anything else to take away from his set.
The dreadlocked singer also took home the award for R&B/Soul Recording of the Year, as well as the biggest prize, Artist of the Year.
"Um, I'd like to thank the Junos of course. I want to thank Canada man," he said in one of his acceptance speeches. "Thank you guys. I wouldn't be here without you. Thank you."
Meanwhile, "Earned It" continues to be the biggest hit of the Weeknd's career, currently holding a No. 7 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
