Kanye West gets booed and censored during Billboard Music Awards performance

2015-05-18 10:05

Las Vegas - Kanye West was booed during his performance on Sunday night that closed the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

Fans seemed divided as they could be heard booing and cheering as sister-in-laws Kendall Jenner, 19, and Kylie Jenner, 17, introduced Kanye.

While Kanye performed his songs All Day and Black Skinhead, a large part of his performance was also censored due to his use of expletives.

According to Rolling Stone, ABC censored more than a minute of Kanye’s performance and although he was on stage for 5 minutes and 18 seconds, sound was only available to viewers for 4 minutes and 16 seconds. This left some viewers wondering whether the sound had cut out.
