The Weeknd brought fire to our 2015 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball hosted by Z100 on Friday night (December 11), and we mean that figuratively and literally. However, that's to be expected since the R&B crooner churned out hit after hit in the last year.

As one of his last major promotional stops of the year, Abel performed a sing-a-long set of hits, including "In The Night," "Earned It," "Can't Feel My Face," and "Love Me Harder" (sans Ariana Grande) as part of a star-studded line-up at New York City's Madison Square Garden. However, the flames during his set closer "The Hills" felt symbolic in a way to all the heat and commotion that the R&B entertainer has made in 2015, transitioning from underground mixtape artist to full-blown pop&B mega-star.

And at the end of the day, there's nothing better than feeling the gratitude and appreciation from someone that has worked hard for what they have achieved. Well done, Abel!

If you missed out on all the action, consider this your holiday gift. You'll be able to relive the night on The CW during a special 90-minute broadcast on December 25th and 30th at 8 p.m. ET/PT -- so put on your Santa hats, grab some gingerbread cookies, and tune in!
