The highlights of the night

The Weeknd was spectacular both when he got his award and when he sung live on the Rotterdam scene, the Global Icond Award, Green Day debuted their newest song, “Bang Bang” from the album Revolution Radio and closed the night with their 2004 hit “American Idiot”. The Joe Jonas band DCNE also made a debut in style on the music scene in the eve of their album launch on November 18. To close the ‘good’part of the show, Bebe Rexha was the host of the evening and changed no less than 15 costumes and played her hit song “I’ve Got U”.

On the other side, in the not so good section, Bebe Rexha played her song in a not so hip-hop way that we were used to. That with a lack of artists of the genre made the evening a little less colorful.
