ITV Just Basically Muted Most Of Kendrick Lamar's Brit Performance

First there was a technical problem. Then we didn't hear most of it.

Kendrick Lamar performed during the Brit Awards. It was absolute scenes. It started with a technical problem where we saw him lying on a box waiting for his song to start for an awkward amount of time.

It lasted for nearly a minute and it was so awkward.

What’s the point in having Kendrick Lamar perform on #BRITS if you’re going to mute him every other word?

Then ITV essentially muted quite a bit of his performance, even though it was past the 9pm watershed.

Many people were frustrated about it on Twitter.

‘Audio Muted’ has to be one of my fave Kendrick tunes #BRITs

Kendrick.... you alright mate? #BRITs #BRITs2018

This hasn't been the first time a performance at the Brits has been muted. Last year, the chorus to Skepta's "Shutdown" was muted by ITV.

And in 2015, they muted a song by Kanye.
