Representatives of the Kardashian universe were not well-received at Sunday’s 2015 Billboard Music Awards, with Us Weekly reporting that Kendall and Kylie Jenner were booed when they took the stage to introduce a performance by their brother-in-law Kanye West.
“While there were some cheers and yells in the mix, the chorus of boos (which didn’t come from the celebs at the front, but from the crowd in the upper decks, according to our insider) were even audible on the TV broadcast,” Us reports.
The report adds: “Remaining professional, the celeb sisters continued their introduction as scripted, ignoring the crowd reaction. Kylie, 17, did most of the talking while Kendall, 19, (who famously flubbed her intro speech while presenting the Australian band 5 Seconds Of Summer at last year’s awards) just cut in at the end to say West’s name.”
The family’s problems on the program extended to West, whose performance of “All Day” and “Black Skinhead” saw the performer largely overshadowed by “a wall of smoke and flames,” the report notes, adding: “And for the viewers watching the show at home, the majority of the expletive-filled lyrical performance was silenced out by the censors, leaving fans both in the auditorium and at home feeling shortchanged.”
