You can watch The Weeknd’s special performance of ‘Save Your Tears’ at the BRITS 2021 in the above video.
The Weeknd also picked up a BRIT for International Male Solo Artist, and was remotely presented with the prize by Michelle Obama.
“In a tough year, he’s provided a light that’s pretty blinding and given us all a reason to dance,” the former First Lady said about The Weeknd.
Elsewhere at the BRIT Awards 2021 Taylor Swift paid tribute to the NHS while accepting the Global Icon Award, while Elton John and Years & Years teamed up for a special cover of Pet Shop Boys’ ‘It’s A Sin’.
