Love him or loathe him, absolutely everybody was excited to see what kind of show Kanye West would bring as he headlined Glastonbury music festival last night.
Needless to say, nobody quite expected him to bring every light in the world and Brit comedian Lee Nelson, but who doesn’t love a surprise, eh?
In perhaps one of the most memorable moments of the entire weekend, just four songs into Kanye’s show, which also doubled as some kind of weird light exhibition, a then-unidentified man scrambled across the stage with a microphone as he pretended to rap along with the star.
In fact, he managed to get alarmingly close to Yeezus himself, who at first attempted to continue performing as he got security’s attention, and then simply said: “Let’s start it over” once the gatecrasher was safely off stage.
What a pro.
Just moments after the stage invasion happened, comic Lee Nelson took to his Twitter account to share his glory and admit that he was the guilty party, posting a photo of himself in a T-Shirt that read “Lee-zus” alongside the caption: “Some people were saying Kanye shouldn’t headline Glastonbury so I thought I’d give him a hand.”
And in case you’re wondering, Lee is also the one who gatecrashed Stereo Kicks X Factor performance last year; if that ain’t going up in the world then we don’t know what is, tbh.
Predictably, Lee’s invasion of Kanye’s headline spot didn’t faze the 38-year-old rapper at all, in fact, he was classic ol’ Kanye – telling the audience towards the end of his set: “I’m gonna say this now because in twenty years or thirty years I might not get another chance.
“You are watching the greatest living rock star on the planet.”
Erm, talk about blowing your own trumpet, Kan….
