So pretty much any artist that spoke about human rights this weekend eas essentislly blocked. Got it.

Maybe, maybe not - depends on the criterion they use so as not to upset their incumbent paymasters.

They got complaints when Stormzy just stepped on stage. So there would never b e a shortage of complaints whether its just performing while black or speaking about the realities of the current state of affairs

Just watched some of the Charlie XCX set (I hadn’t seen it live) quite sad to see the amount of miming going on. On Gone she’s just singing tiny sections and letting the backing track fill in the gaps.   It doesn’t feel right to have such an over reliance on backing tracks for the lead vocal.  
I'm going to have to go and look up what overdubbing is compared to miming if that’s what Billie’s set had.  It looked to me like she was miming some songs when I was watching live, she shouted something like “get that vocal track out of there, why is that even playing?” on one track.  

Didn’t think Neil from PSB was miming tho, he had some backing vocals for odd bits with vocal effects (like Heart) but you can hear weaker bits of vocal and slightly duff notes here and there.

I saw Jarvis has to change the lyrics of his song at the request of the BBC, but if you saw the Amyl & The Sniffers set they used a massive load of c**t. I mean, they are Australian so perhaps it’s allowed. 

Probably more that he is a seasoned broadcaster as well so knows the headaches it could cause. I was there and was pretty surprised that the crowd behaved with it too. But then he had plied us with sweets and compliments by then. I was looking forward to bellowing out the uncensored version but it was still cathartic singing about pricks. Better fitting given RvW too.

They're running the coverage through their 'political expediency' filter just in case someone criticises...

Not just me then.

Lorde telling the Supreme Court to do one is intact in her set 

Maybe I'm just paranoid then?

Yeah a lecture on Human Rights might not go down too well with a government about to replace the international definition with one of their own 'taking back control' interpretations. They hate judges and lawyers telling them what to do however (as in golding them to account), so they might be happy with Lorde...
