Skepta was nominated for three awards at this year’s Brits, including British Album Of The Year, British Male Solo Artist Award, and British Breakthrough Act. Unfortunately, the 34-year-old is not taking any of them home this year. Despite his losses, the grime artist from Tottenham owned the stage during his performance of “Shutdown.” Drenched in red light, Skepta gave an intense performance as he owned the stage completely solo while flames shot up in the background. Some viewers called attention to the fact that the TV network chose to mute the performance when Skepta rapped the word “pussy,” which put a damper on his otherwise stellar performance. Watch clips below.
