Kanye West Booed After Heavily Censored Billboard Music Awards Set

Monday 18 May 2015
Words Ailis Mara

Kanye West closed the 2015 Billboard Music Awards with a performance so heavily censored it was  indecipherable. 


Appearing onstage at the MGM Grand to close the curtains on another confetti-drenched celebration of the world’s biggest selling pop artists, Kanye West performed his new single All Day and ‘Yeezus’ single Black Skinhead to a bemused televised crowd. Due to US Network television’s strict rules on profanity and a stage production straight out of the new Mad Max film, the rapper was nothing but a faint figure engulfed in sparks and silence.
