The Weeknd & Ariana Grande Perform 'Save Your Tears' at 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards

The Weeknd brought out special guest Ariana Grande for the debut television performance of their Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit "Save Your Tears" on Thursday (May 27) at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

He serenaded the masked live crowd at the Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre in a sleek black suit against a multicolored background before Grande came out in a silky purple gown. The newly married singer dazzled alongside The Weeknd before peppering her whistle notes in the bridge, but the crowd couldn’t handle saving their tears, letting them loose at the sight of the two.

The remix of The Weeknd’s After Hours track went No. 1 on the Hot 100 earlier this month, marking the sixth Hot 100 chart-topper for each artist.

The R&B superstar is the leading contender for the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards with eight nominations, while the pop superstar is up for six — including two nods in favorite music video choreography.
