The rapper, who described himself as a "punk, forward artist", performed 'Jesus Walks', 'Touch The Sky', 'Stronger', 'Heartless', 'All Of The Lights', 'Mercy' and 'Black Skinhead' on the show.

TheEarlier this month (February 18), author Bret Easton Ellis confirmed that he has written a film for Kanye West. Speaking about the script, Easton Ellis said: "He came and asked me to write the film. I didn't want to at first. Then I listened to 'Yeezus'. It was early summer last year and I was driving in my car."

He added: "He'd given me an advance copy and I thought, regardless of whether I'm right for this project, I want to work with whoever made this. So fuck it, I said yes. And that's how it happened. That was seven or eight months ago. We'll see what happens."

Last week, meanwhile, UK singer-songwriter James Blake revealed that the rapper had approached him about the prospect of collaborating together. "I have been in contact with him," said Blake. "You know, the way that I like to work is bare bones and personal. I think because Kanye's such an accomplished producer, if I was to work with him, then I think we could do something together, and just together, you know?"

Kanye West celebrated the 10th anniversary of his debut album 'The College Dropout' earlier this month (February 10). The record helped launch West as a solo artist, the rapper having previously worked as a producer for artists including Jay-Z, and features the singles 'All Falls Down' and 'Through The Wire'. To commemorate a decade since the album's release, West posted a series of tweets detailing what the album means to him 10 years on.
