AceShowbiz - There were many unforgettable moments at the 2018 BRIT Awards, which was held at the O2 Arena in London on February 21. One of them was Kendrick Lamar and Rich the Kid's performance, where they suffered technical issues.
As Kendrick lay on top of a large glass case containing an orange Lamborghini, the opening beats of his track "Feel." kept stopping and starting. After three times, the 30-year-old finally started rapping. Despite suffering the technical issues, Kendrick continued his performance professionally.
The words, "This Is Another Satire by Kendrick Lamar" then popped on a screen behind the rapper when he finished the song. He immediately followed it up with a rendition of "New Freezer" as Rich smashed the luxury car.
While the audience members at the award show were left satisfied after his performance, viewers at home were confused and enraged. This was because ITV muted most of the lyrics to the song due to the swearing. "Why get Kendrick Lamar to perform on the #BRITs if you're just going to mute him all the way through?" one angry fan tweeted.

Elsewhere at the event, Liam Gallagher paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester arena attack with a rendition of Oasis' 1994 hit "Live Forever". Gary Barlow introduced his performance, declaring that the Manchester concert "epitomized the human spirit" and that "hate will never win and fear will never divide us."
Meanwhile, Dua Lipa, who was one of the biggest winners at the event, gave a powerful performance of her hit track "New Rules". Donning matching colorful swimsuit and blazer, the songstress began her performance by lying on a multicolored triangle stage. She then walked around a beachy stage and danced with swimsuit-clad female dancers. "You ain't getting over him!" Lipa yelled to the crowd after the performance.
