Liam Gallagher isn't known for keeping a lid on his opinions, so no big surprise that the former Oasis singer let rip during Kanye West's BRIT Awards set on Wednesday night.

In a series of tweets, Gallagher branded West's performance "s**t". Gallagher added that his new song All Day wasn't a patch on his old work, and tweeted the rapper to tell him he preferred his 2004 album The College Dropout.

Of course, the same criticism could be levelled against Gallagher himself. After he left Oasis, Gallagher went on to front Beady Eye with former Oasis members Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock.

Their highest-charting single The Roller came in at No.31. While their two albums sold better, the band couldn't touch the success of Oasis.

While watching the BRITs, Gallagher recommended that the rapper check out La's singer/songwriter Lee Mavers
