Something some social media users thought was a blessing in disguise. Ahem.
The 37-year-old rapper was tasked with closing the awesome awards show, and after being introduced by Kendall and Kylie Jenner, took to the stage for what everyone was hoping would be a performance to remember.
Which it was, to be honest. Just not for the reasons Kanye was hoping, we assume.
The rapper had decided to go from ‘All Day’ into ‘Black Skinhead’, but instead of being able to enjoy Kanye at his finest, viewers were left wondering whether they’d accidentally sat on the mute button after grabbing some mid-show snacks.
His five-minute performance was censored for an awkward 15 seconds at times due to ‘inappropriate’ language, which was made worse by the fact that you couldn’t actually see him on stage through the dark lighting and smoke.
A bit like having a concert in the middle of Hollister, perhaps.
If that wasn’t enough, the rapper was also booed at the end of the set, a bit like the angry icing top of the Yeezy cake.
Somebody get the boy a light switch and a fire extinguisher, STAT.
Twitter users were quick to air their views on the performance, with one tweeting: “Kanye West ft. Silence.”
Another wrote: “What’s wrong with my tv? Sound kept dropping during
@kanyewest’s performance! Umm, wait… #BBMAs, while another said: “WTF is this @kanyewest cr*p on Billboard awards in Vegas. #AllDay. What a load of utter rubbish. Can’t even see him, which is good.”
Maybe ditch the smoke and invest in a torch next time, Kanye? Just a suggestion.
