Music fans were furious at the decision to mute portions of the BRITs which interrupted Stormzy’s performance and Lewis Capaldi’s first victory speech of the night, particularly as Stormzy’s performance took place after the watershed. Fans believed it stopped the artists from “expressing” themselves.

The often rowdy BRITs, which have a reputation for some unpredictable moments, were given few chances by ITV to shock or offend.

When Lewis Capaldi eventually spoke to accept the award for New Artist right at the start of the show, his words were muted.

This became a familiar occurrence throughout the show, perhaps drawing the most anger from the award ceremony’s viewers when Stormzy’s performance had portions of his performance sonically edited.

The response from viewers on social media was rapid, as they objected to the policing of his work.

One viewer asked on Twitter: “ITV why are you muting audio after the watershed?”

Another couldn’t understand the decision: “Why the hell are ITV muting the audio on Stormzy at 9.30pm? Heaven forbid we hear a swear word.”

One fan objected to how it stifled Stormzy’s work: “Are we seriously still muting certain words ITV? Let the artists express themselves.”

There was also the feeling that there was little point in asking artists to perform if they were then going to have their performance edited, and this was far from the first time such an event had taken place.

One fan commented: “Dear ITV it’s past 9pm, why are you still muting swearing? Why invite artists on if you’re just going to mute their songs? Every single year.”

The first sign there would be little room for truly unpredictable incidents arrived when Lewis Capaldi collected his first award of the night.

After standing in several poses and whipping up the crowd, Lewis eventually spoke, but viewers at home heard nothing.

One fan joked ITV regarded him as a loose cannon: “ITV muting the whole of Lewis Capaldi’s speech because they never know what he might say.”

Another asked to know what had happened: “What do Lewis Capaldi say?”

One thought it was so predictable: “Boring ITV muting Lewis swearing.”

However, the muting did have one unexpected effect on a viewer.

“Muting people is why I’m going to buy tickets for Brits 2021.”
