Last night US rapper Kanye West headlined Glastonbury, Britain’s most iconic music festival, in a decision which was controversial even by standards set in recent years (remember all those Metallica nay sayers?). But now that it’s all over, just what did the Glastonbury audience make of Yezzus on the Pyramid stage?

With a stage set which featured nothing more than a ceiling made up of a few hundred lightbulbs, Kanye West took on Glastonbury solo, opening up with the very appropriate ‘Stronger’. But it wasn’t long until some drama went down, as midway through the third song Kanye fell victim to a stage invader, later identified as comedian Lee Nelson.

But once that small hiccup was over Kanye was off, delivering song after song usually with a little help from the audience and of course his invisable band. Along with hits such as ‘Black Skinhead’, ‘Bound 2’ and ‘All Day’, West also indulged in an unexpected cover of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, to the delight of some and the horror of others.

The Telegraph’s Neil McCormick described the performance “as much miss as hit”. “There was almost a sense of two different gigs going on simultaneously. Down the front, hard core fans were lapping up his confrontational delivery,” McCormick observed. “But from about the middle of the crowd and up the rest of the hillside there were just gaps.”

The Independent’s Emily Jupp called it ‘a daringly confident performance'. "With no backing singers and the band – if there is one – is hidden, there’s no mistaking that this is all about one man, one brand."

Twitter on the night seemed almost 50/50 with some revelling in the sheer spectacle West delivered, while others delighted in poking fun at every aspect of the performance, even the BBC’s often humours subtitling.

But at the end of the day Kanye probably isn't too bothered about who thinks what when it comes to his music and staging. After all this is the man, who standing on the stage that Mick Jagger commanded two years ago, declared himself, “THE GREATEST LIVING ROCKSTAR ON THE PLANET!” Now that's confidence.
