It was a historic performance for The Weeknd, whose off-stage name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, as he’s the first Canadian to ever headline a solo Super Bowl halftime show. 

Canada's PM acknowledged the achievement, adding, “Hope you heard all the cheers from back home.”

It was a sentiment backed up by several leading Canadian politicians, including NDP leader Jagmeet Singh who described the show as an example of “Canadian excellence.”

Toronto Mayor John Tory also got involved in the love-fest, tweeting, “From Scarborough all the way to the world’s biggest stage. Making Toronto proud.”

In true Super Bowl style, the halftime show was pretty extra and reportedly cost around $7 million to produce.

It included a selection of the star’s most famous songs, including "Can't Feel My Face," "The Hills," "Earned It," and "Blinding Lights," among others.
