Can I get a witness?

After months of controversy and doubt about his headlining status at Glastonbury last night Jay Z absolutely KILLED it. He opened up his set with a huge grin on his face as he mimed the words to Wonderball by Oasis (Oasis front man Noel Gallagher was quoted saying "I'm not having hip hop at Glastonbury, it's wrong") and a video montage flashing up Noel's words alongside images from Gordon Brown, George Bush, to Boris Johnson and the Queen. Then straight into "99 Problems", a slew of hits, a very amuzing accapella in English slang, and then of course the perfect finale "Encore". His performance was phenomenal and so was his exhibition of humbleness and gratitude as he thanked his whole audience and acknowledged the importance of love and broadmindedness before he walked off the stage.
