Kanye West brought his Sunday Service to the Coachella festival grounds on Easter Sunday (April 21), where those who were able to attend gathered around a hill in Indio, Calif. to watch him, his band and gospel choir perform.
But for those tuning into the live stream, their view was a little different — and many immediately commented on West’s choice to basically make the at-home audience peer through a telescope on the live stream.
Instead of going with the full-frame approach that Coachella’s live stream has utilized for its broadcasts, West’s Sunday Service got the circular treatment: as cameras flew overhead and offered different viewpoints of dancers and the band, the smaller lens honed in on individual players and occasionally West himself.
Check out reactions to West’s Sunday Service — and, specifically, his approach for the live stream — below.
