It might be time for The Weeknd to invest in a new mantel — he continues to rack up awards, despite the Grammys snub … this time taking home the most trophies at the iHeartRadio Awards.
Abel was the winner of 3 pieces of hardware Thursday night — including the coveted Song of The Year and Top Male Artist awards — for his single, “Blinding Lights,” and album “After Hours.” The 3 wins tied him with BTS for the most of the night.
The singer was humble in accepting, thanking his team and his fans … but you gotta imagine the last couple weeks have brought him great vindication after leaving the Grammys with goose eggs.
Fans and fellow artists were outraged when “After Hours” was snubbed. Abel vowed to never submit his work to the Recording Academy for Grammy consideration again, accusing “secret committees” within the org of getting it wrong.
However, just last week, the singer was validated when he took home 10 trophies — the most of any artist — at The Billboard Awards.
By the way, he also showed off his singing chops at iHeart with newly-married Ariana Grande, the two performed their version of “Save Your Tears” … and of course, the crowd ate it up.
