Drake showed off his singing and rapping skills by performing "Started From The Bottom" and "Hold On We're Going Home" during 2013 MTV Video Music Awards tonight.

Set against a background resembling the artwork for his Nothing Was The Same album, the Toronto star kept his set short and sweet.

He explained to MTV earlier, the process of preparing for the big show. “I get to do the new record, I’m doing ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’ into ‘Started From The Bottom,’” Drake said. “So [it's] really just an exciting performance to show the range and also show the diversity of music on the album.”
