Billboard Music Awards 2015: Kanye West’s performance goes up in flames.

The rapper released a statement Tuesday saying he was “grossly over-censored” during his performance on the show. Kanye West was all ready and amped to close out the 2015 Billboard Music Awards with “All Day” and “Black Skinhead,” two songs few can listen to and remain serene and composed.Swift had a historic night at the Billboard Music Awards: The pop star is the most decorated artist in the show’s history with 20 wins, beating Garth Brooks’ 19-win record. But home viewers weren’t able to fully enjoy Yeezy’s performance, as the broadcast heavily muted parts of the show, including words that don’t even anger the FCC or violate its regulations.

Taylor Swift dominated the event, winning eight awards including top artist, while British soul singer Sam Smith took the honours for top male artist and new artist. As a result, his voice and performance were seriously misrepresented.” “Although West was clearly set up to face elements beyond his control during the live broadcast, he would like to apologize to the television audience who were unable to enjoy the performance the way he envisioned.” Swift, 25, one of the top-selling musical acts in the United States last year, also picked up awards for top female artist, top Billboard 200 artist and album and top hot 100 artist, among others. “This is such a good night,” Swift enthused as she collected the night’s big prize, top artist. In a complete fail by the show’s organisers, West’s performance of tracks All Day and Black Skinhead were completely marred by pyrotechnics which basically all but obscured the rapper, flanked by two dancers, on stage with lights, flames and smoke.

Relive the debut of “All Day” from earlier this year and return to the simplicity of flamethrowers and a clearly visible West that were absent Sunday. Worse, it seems the broadcasters were very heavy-handed on the censorship button, completely muting West’s sound, including the backing track and noise from the crowd, multiple times throughout both tracks. The resulting sound, or lack thereof, made it seem as if there had been extreme interference with the broadcast, which completely ruined West’s performance. British superband One Direction was another multiple winner, winning top touring artist and top duo or group, while Iggy Azalea was a triple winner for top rap artist, rap song and top streaming artist.

Twitter went crazy almost immediately, with fans at best bemused at the quality of the broadcast, with many saying they had wondered whether their television had broken. “Lmao kanye is gonna unleash the fury on yall asses once he sees his performance (sic),” said one Twitter user. Pharrell Williams swept the R & B categories, taking honors for song, album and artist while Jason Aldean took the prizes for top country song and album. In fact, dodgy performances seemed to be the main stand-out aspect of the Billboard awards, with Britney Spears’ turn alongside Iggy Azalea on Pretty Girls drawing some flak for very dodgy lip-synching. Earlier in the show, which took place in the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Mariah Carey had drawn a few Twitter reactions over her questionable vocal performance on tracks Vision of Love and new hit Infinity.

Audiences are yet to see how the couples will pan out on Nine’s headline-grabbing new show Married at First Sight, but the network certainly isn’t shying away from commitment. On the back of what Nine said was a “ratings smash” for the show’s premiere episode on Monday night, it revealed a second series would enter production soon and air next year.

The six-part series, which scored an average 1.565 million viewers nationwide for its first episode, follows four couples who meet for the first time as they wed before deciding whether to go the distance. “From the outset, we knew what we were creating was not just another reality program, rather a ground-breaking social experiment. We are thrilled that people have formed their own opinions on the value of this radical method of matchmaking.” Radical indeed: a trio of experts – two psychologists and a psychotherapist – mined through 1000 applicants to match four couples they hope will endure.
