Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

Kanye West delivered an awkward performance of “Jesus Walks,” “Only One,” and “Wolves” on Saturday Night Live’s 40 Anniversary special last night.

West kicked off his multi-track set with “Jesus Walks” while lying completely flat on his back, with overhead cameras capturing his face and audio as he belted out his 2004 anthem into a microphone suspended over his mouth.

The ever-supportive wife, Mrs. Kardashian West, instantly turned to Instagram after Yeezy’s performance, calling it an “Iconic moment;” meanwhile, Twitter users wasted no time slamming the performance.
