In a time where concerts are seemingly nonexistent, The Weeknd aimed to live up to his “Starboy” status.

The Grammy Award-winning artist gave the NFL Super Bowl crowd and everyone watching at home a shining performance that the country’s been lacking amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Weeknd sang all of his popular radio bops like “Blinding Lights” and “Earned It” with a choir and band jamming out behind him as well as a masked dance crew out on the field.

But of course, in true Internet fashion, people on Twitter didn’t miss out on making memes out of the performance.
