The Weeknd was the musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night. The singer appeared on the show to play new single "Blinding Lights." He took to the stage with a (presumably) fake black eye and broken nose, perhaps the result of a run-in with Adam Sandler in a New York club. Check it out above.

Earlier this week The Weeknd shared the official "Blinding Lights" music video. "Blinding Lights" was, alongside "Heartless," one of two new songs The Weeknd put out towards the end of 2019. His most recent album, Starboy, dropped in 2016.
