Chris Brown who made an appearance tonight at the BET Awards, finally got to show his love and respect for Michael Jackson his idol. The last sixteen months has been an emotional journey for Chris Brown. Once a number one Billboard artist, now a fallen idol after his domestic abuse charge for beating Rihanna that fateful Grammy night.
A flawless dance performance, became difficult once he started to sing. Overcome with emotion, Chris Brown fell apart on stage, barely able to sing the lyrics to “Man in the Mirror” and visibly weeping. Awww!
“I’m gonna make a change for once in my …” Brown’s voice trailed off. He was out of breath and sounded hoarse. Tears stained his cheeks as he paced the stage, holding the microphone by his side. “This … wind is blowing my … Who am I to…” He clearly knew the lyrics but they failed to come out.
Brown’s emotional performance echoed through the rest of the show. When Niecy Nash came onstage to present the Video of the Year award, she said, “When Chris Brown started crying I got choked up,” MTV reported.
Chris Brown a Taurus can be a stubborn man. The last two years, have been difficult for him to comprehend the effect his relationship with Rihanna would have on his career. This month, Brown’s application for a visa to enter the UK was denied on the grounds of him “being guilty of a serious criminal offence.” Brown had planned on doing a British tour but that has been shelved for now.
Hopefully his appearance on BET Awards will help Chris Brown bounce back in the charts.
