During his performance, Stormzy took a moment to add political commentary within his songs:

“Yo, Theresa May, where’s the money for Grenfell? What, you thought we just forgot about Grenfell? You’re criminals, and you got the cheek to call us savages. You should do some jail time, you should pay some damages. You should burn your house down and see if you can manage this.”
