Washington, Feb. 29(ANI): Seems like The Weeknd did not leave a single stone unturned to make his performance at the 88th Academy Awards evening as memorable as possible.
After being introduced by Kevin Hart, the 26-year-old rapper took the stage to perform his Oscar-nominated song ‘Earned It,’ featured in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ with utter sensuality, reports E! Online.
Keeping with the theme of the movie, The Weekend was surrounded by scantily clad dancers and one incredible trapeze artist, who pulled off some amazing moves.
For this performance, Swarovski created a custom stage to make the music video come to life. The stage included 10 custom designed torcheries with eight different cuts of crystal made with 10,816 Swarovski crystals that really made the stage sparkle.
‘Earned It’ was nominated for ‘Best Original Song’ at the Oscars, marking The Weeknd’s first Oscar nod. (ANI)
