The new mum didn’t attend the awards do at the Barclay Center, New York on Sunday night but it sounds like her and baby North West were glued to the TV watching Kanye, 36, perform new single Blood On The Leaves.

The rapper put on a very eerie set, with the whole stage covered in darkness apart from a haunting image of a tree in the background.

All that could be seen of Kanye was his silhouette as he recited the track and it wasn’t until the end that the light was fully shone on him.

The surprise performance was certainly a big hit with Kim, 32, who Tweeted: Best performance of the night @kanyewest !!!!!!!!!’

The dramatic appearance marks Kanye’s return to the stage following the birth of baby North, who arrived 5 weeks early on 15 June.

Kanye recently talked about his love for Kim and North on Kris Jenner‘s chat show, admitting that having them around has changed his life for the better.

She’s my joy and she brought my new joy into the world and there’s no paparazzi and there’s no blog comments, there’s nothing that’s going to take that joy from me,’ he declared.

After I lost my mother there was times where I felt like I would put my life at risk. I felt like sometimes I didn’t have something to live for.

Now I have two really special people to live for.’
