The Weeknd cleaned up his act for the Grammys.

The Canadian singer, known for bleak songs about drugs and sex, dressed up in a tux to perform his No. 1 hit “Can’t Feel My Face” before segueing into an acoustic version of his song “In the Night.”

Considering his performances in the past have been literally explosive—he performed around a ring of fire during last year’s MTV Video Music Awards—the simple arrangement and simple flashing lights of the medley were strikingly understated.

Both songs are from his already Grammy-winning album, The Beauty Behind the Madness, which took home the award for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
