To be fair, there are a lot of lyrics in that song

We've all experienced it. Your favourite song comes on in a club or at a gig, and you begin to loudly and enthusiastically sing along... before realising with a flush of embarrassment that you don't really know the words as well as you thought. Last night, that happened to Kanye West in front of tens of thousands of people.

West treated fans to a cover of Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' - a great choice in front of a British crowd. Except, he could perhaps have done with a little more practice. Before he began to sing the opening verse, he mouthed along to 'I'm just a poor boy", before promptly forgetting the words and just, sort of, opening his mouth repeatedly.

We should probably cut him some slack though - 'Bohemian Rhapsody' does have a lot of words, and he had his own lyrics to tackle as well.

As for the rest of Kanye West's much-anticipated (some with excitement, others with dread) headline set at Glastonbury - it was met with a mixed response to say the least. Read Gigwise readers' reaction to his performance here.

Meanwhile, the BBC's subtitles department had a grand old time attempting to make his language a little more PG - though eventually, it seems, they just gave up and wrote "HE RAPS".

Glastonbury 2015 comes to an end tonight (28 June) with a headline performance from The Who.
