Kanye West at the V Festival

KANYE WEST thrilled fans at the Stafford leg of the V Festival yesterday - hours before scooping his first UK number one. Backed by a glamorous orchestra sporting David Bowie makeup, the rapper kicked off with Diamonds From Sierra Leone and was rewarded by 50,000 cheering fans. But it was his latest single Stronger which got the crowd bouncing around with their fists in the air. Dressed like a McDonalds box of fries and weighed down by a multitude of diamonds, Kanye bounded across the stage pounding out hits including Gold Digger, Through The Wire and Heard Em Say before finishing with Touch The Sky.
