Kanye West tried to perform “All Day” and “Black Skinhead” at the Billboard Awards tonight, but the censors were like — “nah.” The combination of out of control pyro and censorship overload, resulted in a performance nobody could either see or hear. So what was the point?
Also why perform “All Day” in the first place? There was no way Yeezy was going to top that crazy performance at the Brit Awards back in February. Once again Kanye stole the show tonight for all the wrong reasons. Check out what folks online had to say about Ye’s smoked out set.

Kanye West at the #BBMAS…what was the point! Why bother getting him to perform if you're gonna silence most of it.
