The Weeknd is innovative in a way with his use of 80s style beats but is heavily comparable to Michael Jackson voice wise and a darker more romantic feel but still similar music wise.

Saw this guy at The Hangout last Friday night. He closed down the main stage that night. When he was announced as a headliner, I was very disappointed. Bummed, actually.

I had been watching The Chainsmokers & they were hella unimpressive, so I headed over to check him out. Huge crowd there, but I picked my way thru em to be around the sound tent. He's a Hell of a lot better than The Chainsmokers, I can tell you that. Great voice & excellent stage presence. Crowd was singing along to his songs. Wish I'd attended the whole show.

Good perspective on him Paul. I wasn't too crazy about him either, especially now that he's a popstar. The media has been hyping him like crazy and I guess Rolling stone has been doing their part. If they keep that up, then yeah he'll be in the HOF

Well, because there is no page yet for the Chainsmokers (even though they've been big the last two years), I guess I'll just put my two cents on them here. Saw them at Bonnaroo. I do side with Paul that their show is not so great unless you're really wanting to get down. Expect a medley of several of their remixes and hits. I do love their radio hits but their show was sorta dull on their part.
