BRIT Awards 2021: Lewis Capaldi leaves fans in hysterics as expletive-laden speech is CENSORED

Lewis Capaldi's surprise appearance at the 2021 Brit Awards left viewers in hysterics on Tuesday, after his expletive-laden speech was heavily censored by bosses.

The singer, 24, who took to the stage to present British Album, was muted multiple times after dropping the F-bomb during the live ceremony, despite his speech being aired after the 9pm watershed.

Despite his outburst, many fans took to social media to praise 'hilarious' Lewis for his foul-mouthed outburst, as the singer has been noticeably absent from the spotlight in recent months while working on his second album.

Look who it is! Lewis Capaldi's surprise appearance at the 2021 Brit Awards left viewers in hysterics on Tuesday, after his expletive-laden speech was heavily censored by bosses

As he took to the stage, Lewis attempted to bresh off the huge cheers from fans in the audience, telling them repeatedly to 'shut up.'

The Someone You Love Me star's began: 'Hello motherf***ers!' before being hastily muted by ITV bosses.

He said: 'Listen guys, I'm f****ng sweating! It's like a swamp down there I'm telling you, sweaty b******s hello Brit Awards!

'It's great to be here tonight, it's just great to be out of the house to be honest, it's been a great year for albums, mostly because I haven't f*****g released one.'  

What did he say? The singer, who took to the stage to present British Album, was muted multiple times after dropping the F-bomb during the live ceremony

The rest of Lewis' speech was intermittent with muted parts as producers tried to block his profanities with the sound eventually returning as Lewis said: 'Sorry, I was reading off a card here - 'how is everyone doing?' 

Censored again Lewis added: 'And obviously let's also hope that Scotland win at the Euros! Aye! I didn't f*****g write it! I'm just doing a job!'

After introducing the nominees, Lewis got in one more expletive, clearly took fast for producers attempting to mute his speech, adding: 'Some good s***.'

Cheeky! He said: 'Listen guys, I'm f****ng sweating! It's like a swamp down there I'm telling you, sweaty b******s hello Brit Awards!'

The star's cheeky behaviour left viewers in hysterics, with one writing: 'If someone could please share Lewis Capaldi unmuted that would be fab.'

Another wrote: 'Trying to lip read Lewis Capadi because #brits2021 think they have to mute the audio after 10pm.'

A third also penned: ' LEWIS CAPALDI LITERALLY STARTED HIS SPEECH BY SAYING 'HELLO MOTHERF*****S ON BRITS AWARDS.'

'Lewis Capaldi's 'hello motherf-*audio muted* IM SO FUC-*audio muted* is how the Brits is supposed to be,' an amused fan said. 

We can't hear him! The rest of Lewis' speech was intermittent with muted parts as producers tried to block his profanities

Despite much of the ceremony taking place after the watershed, BRITs bosses were clearly keen to avoid the use of any crude language, as they also had to mute host Jack Whitehall during one of his more naughty quips.

The comedian appeared to be referencing the awards show's organised sat in the corporate boxes at the top of the O2 Arena, before his speech was suddenly censored.

According to the subtitles on the ITV Hub, Jack had joked about 'the corporate w***ers in the boxes.'

We love it! However the star's cheeky behaviour left viewers in hysterics, with many praising his 'hilarious' appearance on the show

Put 'em up! Lewis continued his rebellious behaviour backstage, flipping the bird in a hilarious selfie with presenter Maya Jama

The sound returned as Jack said: ''I think this is the moment when I won't be asked back next year.' 

A performance by Headie One also fell victim to the BRITs censors, with their energetic showcase being muted multiple times due to explicit language.

In an explosion of colour and optimism, the 2021 BRIT Awards celebrated the achievements of British and international artists over the last 18 months.  

The awards ceremony truly belonged to Dua Lipa, 25, as the evening saw her scoop the accolade for Female Solo Artist and the Mastercard British Album of the Year Award for her lockdown hit Future Nostalgia. 

This year's Rising Star award winner Griff was handed the baton for the honour by 2020's Rising Star winner Celeste, who herself was up for three further awards.

He said what? BRITs bosses were clearly keen to avoid the use of any crude language, as they also had to mute host Jack Whitehall during one of his more naughty quips

And Arlo Parks was crowned Breakthrough Artist, one of the three awards the star was nominated for, after what has been an incredible year for the young London artist. 

She also made her debut BRITs performance with an elegant rendition of Hope and decorated the set as a sunflower field in a nod to the name of her debut album.

The most nominated girl band in BRIT Award history, Little Mix, finally bagged the title of British Group and made history as the first-ever girl band to win, having been up for the award three previous times. 

Meanwhile, the International Group category followed a similar suit, with the California girlband HAIM in attendance to accept their award.
