The 2015 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday May 17 was an epic failure for Kim Kardashian’s family. During the live awards show Kim’s little sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner took the stage to introduce her hubby Kanye West – and were booed so badly that the only thing missing was tomatoes being thrown at them. Then, Kanye headed up on stage to perform – and the special effects made it nearly impossible for the audience to even see the rapper, then the network bleeped out the majority of his performance.
Surely this isn’t the first time Kendall and Kylie Jenner have been booed, and it most likely won’t be the last – but it was still painful to watch on live television, like a train wreck that you can’t look away from. The Jenner sisters managed to struggle through reading the teleprompter and maintain their composure while the audience made it very clear that they were not fans of them or their famous family. The sisters read, “It’s an honor to introduce this great artist: A friend, an inspiration, a brother and now, a doctor. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Kanye West!”
The special effects crew at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards must have had a little too much free time on their hands – because the fog machines and lights on stage were so over the top Kanye could barely even make it through the smoke to sing his two songs, “Black Skinhead” and “All Day.” Then, to make matters worse Kanye apparently opted not to censor his songs on live television so the network had no choice but to bleep out nearly two minutes of his performance. So basically all anyone seen at home was a silent screen full of smoke.
It’s safe to say Kanye West is not a happy camper right now, and Kendall and Kylie are probably paying in their beds at home crying because everyone hates them. Bottom line is, the 2015 Billboard Music Awards was an epic failure for Kim Kardashian’s family. They should probably stick to heavily scripted, rehearsed, reality television – live TV is not their forte.
