When it comes to channeling the breakfast staple, stars such as The Weeknd, Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj are among the select few who can execute it flawlessly. Okay, the lauded singers didn’t exactly transform into pancakes (how cool/weird would that be though?!), but PEOPLE did recruit super-talented illustrator Nathan Shields of Saipancakes to take on the challenge.

In anticipation of the Grammy Awards on Feb. 15th, Shields reimagined a handful of this year’s nominated performers as incredibly detailed pancakes. As for his favorite creation, Shields is quick to choose The Weeknd. “I’m a fan of his hair,” he tells PEOPLE, “half out of envy and half because it’s fun to pancake.”
