At the 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards, the Weeknd took home Best Video honors for "Starboy" as well as brought the house down with a very cool performance.

With a trippy dome of the cosmos casting him into the shadows, Abel Tesfaye emerged from his silhouette with his natural charisma.

The Weeknd's new album Starboy drops on Black Friday, November 25.
