Kanye West’s headlining gig at this year’s Glastonbury fest has been the subject of heavy debate in advance. Facing an online petition to keep him away from the festival in order to make room for “a rock band,” Kanye proved the naysayers wrong with a stunning set.

You can watch his removal from the stage in the tweet below and an extended, but low-quality version of the stage invasion above.
