Well at least we think he did but someone kept muting him due to what we can only imagine was some rather colourful language.

But the flames were quite pretty.
And Taylor Swift seemed to like it...
Lionel Richie and Taylor Swift 'enjoying' a muted Kanye West might be one of the all time great BRITS moments. https://t.co/5kYOgRwGUF— Adam Burt (@Newnab) February 25, 2015
Lionel wasn't too sure though.

Lionel Richie looks ready to commit suicide. #BRITAwards— Tim Doble (@BetterThanToday) February 25, 2015
As for the rest of the world, well, it was divisive to say the least.

Turned Brits on for a few minutes, & having seen Kanye West's 'performance', on reflection Mertesacker & Giroud have done okay— Guy Mowbray (@Guymowbray) February 25, 2015

I thought Kanye West's performance tonight was— Boogie (@BoogsTweets) February 25, 2015
But he did have his fans.
I like @kanyewest
I love a human who doesn't give a toss and does what they feel right!
Having the $ to do it helps though #BRITAwards— Roycey (@officialroycey) February 25, 2015
Kanye has put on such an amazing show with only a days notice that he was performing. How people can discredit what an artist he is, idk— Cara ♡ (@Caraaaaaxo) February 25, 2015

@HuffPostUKEnt It wasn't confusing it was a load of posturing crap— Daisy ✿ (@Mystic_Mo) February 25, 2015
