Toronto Grammys

The Weeknd picks up two Grammys

Toronto musicians may not have picked up any prizes during the televised Grammy Awards show last night, but The Weeknd did snag two awards yesterday - his first two ever.

The Scarborough native won best R&B performance for "Earned It" and best urban contemporary album for Beauty Behind the Madness.

During the live show, The Weeknd (aka Abel Tesfaye) got a well deserved standing ovation after he performed "I Can't Feel My Face" as well as a pared down version of "In the Night" to the massive crowd at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Justin Bieber also took to the Staples Center stage. He played an acoustic version of "Love Yourself" and then joined Diplo and Skrillex (together they form Jack Ü) to rock out to their now Grammy Award-winning hit "Where Are U Now?" Like The Weeknd, this was Bieber's first Grammy win.
