kanye west - billboard awards
*Well dang, folks are certainly talking about Kanye West‘s performance at the Billboard Awards Sunday night.

After a brief introduction by Kendall and Kylie Jenner, who got booed, by the way, Kanye did his thing (to some boos, too).

Dude was barely visible behind array of pyrotechnics. For TV viewers it was a tedious performance as the 37-year-old rapped a heavily censored version of his song, “All Day.” Censors killed the audio in parts of the song (due to N-word usage) … Some reports say the censoring killed as much as 1 minute or more in total of the 4 minute song. But on the other hand, most of the audience at the show didn’t seem to mind.

After “All Day” Ye launched into an impassioned performance of “Black Skinhead.” It was intense and in true Kanye West fashion.

His set was part of the build-up to his forthcoming album, “Swish.” The album doesn’t have a release date, but Kanye has debuted three singles from it, including “FourFiveSeconds,” “All Day” and “Only One.”
