Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016: the musical highlights

Previous performers have included Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Ellie Goulding

It’s been called the Super Bowl of the underwear world. The annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show is a pink, glittery spectacle that has spawned the world’s greatest supermodels for over 20 years. But the big-budget runway would be nothing without live performances by some of the flashiest names in pop. Like the Super Bowl, many of the artists are the same, like Bruno Mars, who crashed the Coldplay show last year, and Lady Gaga, who will be headlining the 2017 game. The Weeknd, who this week broke the record for the most Spotify streams in one day, also performed. Here’s what Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and The Weeknd got up to at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016.
