Controversial rapper, Kanye West closed the 3-hour Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 18 with an uncensored performance which earned him more boos than cheers. Boos from the audience even before the controversial rapper took the stage indicated doom.

According to Ameyaw Debrah, when it was announced that West would be performing after the commercial break, the attendees in the venue booed loudly, according to a Yahoo Music editor who was on site. Even West’s sisters-in-law, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, received negative reaction from the crowd when they introduced him. The disapproval continued throughout his set that included his heavily bleeped songs “All Day” and “Black Skinhead.”

To omit profanity, an ample portion of the audio for his first track, “All Day,” was censored from the broadcast, leaving viewers to hear several seconds of silence throughout his segment. The portions that were played were nearly inaudible, inhibited by screeching sound effects.

Viewers also never got a clear glimpse of the rapper, hidden behind a steady stream of pyrotechnics and thick smoke. At the beginning of the concert, he appeared to be walking through flames towards the front of the stage but he never emerged from the clouds of mist.
