Kanye x BBMAs

The 2015 Billboard Music Awards featured tons of performances from major names like Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears, Chris Brown and Pitbull, Nicki Minaj and more, but no one had quite the performance that Kanye West did. Well, at least I think…since we actually couldn’t hear OR see relatively anything that happened.

Yeezy opted to perform his recent single “All Day,” which as we all know, is riddled with tons of curses – particularly with the n-word repeatedly in the chorus. Apparently apprehensive of this, the person who was working the censoring for the BBMAs got a little trigger-happy, and bleeped out so much, you truly didn’t hear much of anything but “all day” being said for the most part. The censoring went as long as 15 solid seconds at times!

Kanye‘s love for pyro also served him wrong, as the fireworks and smoke were so thick, you couldn’t see anything else for a majority of the performance. It was just one big fail all around…including the introduction from Kendall and Kylie Jenner, who were booed as they did so.

Since the performance, the people behind the awards show have responded, and they are blaming Kanye for the mess – stating that they didn’t know he’d be performing the uncensored version of his song, forcing the censors to stand on the audio dump button (since the show was live, but there is a few-second delay for situations like this.)

Ye apparently skipped his sound check, so production simply expected him to do the right thing, saying, “He knew it was national TV.”

“He’s Kanye,” they added. “What are we supposed to do?” Check out the clip below.
