(NME) — Kanye West performed at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday night (May 17).

The rapper closed the ceremony with a medley of recent single ‘All Day’ and ‘Yeezus’ track ‘Black Skinhead’. A large amount of West’s performance was censored due to frequent use of expletives (as was the case during his Brit Awards appearance in February) and the star’s appearance was shrouded by smoke and pyrotechnics.

As Billboard reports, West was booed by a portion of the audience at the end of his performance, as well as during his introduction – with West introduced by his sisters-in-law, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner.
