People are fuming.

Tonight (Wednesday 22nd February) Skepta performed at the 2017 BRIT Awards broadcast on ITV, but there was on thing very wrong with his performance - parts of it were muted. 

Watch the unedited performance below:

While fans were happy to see Skepta (and Grime, in general) finally represented at this year's BRIT Awards with nominations and performances, they took to Twitter to express their frustration at Skepta's performance being muted, even after 9pm. 


Fans also were quick to mention that Dermot said the phrase "batshit crazy" live on the show and yet was not muted.

There's been no comment from ITV.
