Kanye West Debuts Three New Songs at Governor's Ball

A day after turning thirty-six and celebrating with Jay-Z and Nas, Kanye West took the stage at Governor's Ball and performed tracks off his hotly-anticipated album, Yeezus. Among the cuts came the debut of "On Site "

A picture of Kanye's initial stage setup and some other performances from the show are below.

Here is Kanye performing "Black Skinhead":

Kanye also went back and performed some of his classic tracks, such as "Can't Tell Me Nothing" and "Power."

UPDATE: More footage from Kanye's performance surfaces, including the intro of "On Site," which he bangs out on the MPC.

The crowd also wished Yeezy a happy birthday:

UPDATE: Here is Kanye performing "I Am God," triumphantly standing in the midst of the crowd.

UPDATE: Right after performing "I Am God," Kanye transitioned smoothly into "Jesus Walks." Footage from that and his performance of "Heartless," "Flashing Lights," and "All Of The Lights" is below.

UPDATE: This was a vintage Kanye West performance tonight. Towards the end of his set he thanked the crowd for coming out for this occasion, saying that they didn't have to be there. He then said, "With this album, we ain't got no single to radio... We ain't even got no cover." The Chicago native used this as a segue into his performance of the "Don't Like" remix. Footage of that and "Clique" are below

UPDATE: Yeezy's not done with the debuts. Below is footage of him performing another track presumably off Yeezus

UPDATE: Below is more footage as Kanye performs "Diamonds (Remix)" and "Runaway." Also, it appears that Kanye's rants have left members of the audience in tears.

UPDATE: Brief snippets of Kanye's rants were documented in vine form, available below.

UPDATE: Here is complete footage of Kanye performing "I Am A God." Note the bloodcurdling scream.
