ABC censors entire minute of Kanye's closing act at Billboards

Kanye West graced the 2015 Billboard Music Awards with an elaborate performance of "All Day" and "Black Skinhead" Sunday night.

Too bad we could barely hear or see him the entire time, thanks to some heavy profanity and a whole lot of pyrotechnics.

The performance was so censored, it was kind of like ABC was screaming, "Kanye, I'mma let you finish, but ..."

Rolling Stone did the math -- Kanye was on stage for 5 minutes and 18 seconds, but viewers at home could only hear him for 4 minutes and 16 seconds. Yeezus!

The, uh, dramatic performance didn't seem to mute the audience one bit -- though the feedback was quite split, with some pumping their fists enthusiastically and others reportedly booing as he finished his set.

Kanye also received a lot of backlash on Twitter for his "hell set."

But as a writer for The Huffington Post so perfectly pondered, should we expect anything less from Kanye at this point? "It was intense, in true Kanye West fashion."

Well, if we know Kanye, he'll have at least something to say about getting bleeped for more than a minute. And we can't wait to hear it ... well, unless that gets censored too.

P.S. Did you hear Kanye was now a doctor? He received his honorary doctorate degree last week in Chicago:
