Kanye West's Weirdly Muted BRITs Performance Explained!
The BRITs have issued a statement after fans took to Twitter complain about the disjointed sound...
While Yeezy was pretty well behaved at the bash (there were NO stage interruptions for starters) he did put on a typically explicit performance of new track All Day, with many fans left baffled after half the tune was muted to block out the naughty lyrics.
Unfortunately for ITV, the N-word did slip through the net a few times, with one person tweeting: “Well done to @ITV for blocking out the only part of Kanye’s song that wasn’t a swear word and for letting him drop that n-bomb on live TV...”
Another posed the question: “What was the point of Kanye performing if they just auto muted most of his lyrics?”
While someone else wrote: “Brit awards go to all the trouble of muting half Kanye’s song and STILL let the n word out three times. Censorship at its best.”

A rep for the ceremony has since stated: “ITV took the decision to use an audio mute during the performance. The BRITs is broadcast live on ITV from 8pm to a wide audience.
“We have operated a short time delay as standard practice for some years on the show, to allow us to mute language that may be inappropriate for that wide audience, and elected to do so in this case, given the performance took place shortly after the 9pm watershed.”
Well, it’s unlike Yeezy to cause controversy!
Anyway, here's Yeezy in ALL his glory...
