'Scarborough Represent!': The Weeknd has Ontario beaming with pride after Super Bowl Halftime Show

The Weeknd is the first Canadian to take on the Super Bowl stage since Shania Twain in 2003 and people around the country are sharing their support for the Toronto, specifically Scarborough, artist.

Filled with all the lights and tricks that make up an elaborate Super Bowl Halftime Show, The Weeknd sang hit songs including “Starboy,” “The Hills” and “Can’t Feel My Face.”

Many Canadians were quick to call out their homegrown talent who’s making a splash on the international stage, with “Scarborough” trending on Twitter.

Many others also compared The Weeknd to Michael Jackson, after seeing his slick dance moves, hearing his voice and seeing his outfit that’s very reminiscent of the late pop star’s look. Last week, The Weeknd told Variety that he was particularly inspired by Jackson, Prince, Beyonce and Diana Ross’s halftime show performances.
