Chris Brown Performs at the VMAs [Video]

Chris Brown

Chris Brown pumped up the volume with this high-powered medley of his hits during the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. With his brief retrospective of MTV hits, Breezy kicked off with his club smash “Yeah 3X,” cutting his performance with a dance breakdown to Wu-Tang Clan’s “Protect Ya Neck.” After rocking out to Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” the singer, clad in a white suit, took flight while he belted out “Beautiful People,” entertaining an ebullient Kanye West who applauded while standing next to Jay-Z.

    I don’t give a F*CK what anyone says, he had the most epic performance. He mixed all genres. He danced his a** off and I don’t care if he didn’t really sing. We all know he can sing. You wanna hear vocals from him, pick up the album. You wanna see the best dancing out there right now, whatch his performance.

    @meme, BITCH please!!! Jay Z is a former DRUG DEALER and he stabbed someone! He ain’t no better than Chris! Jay just wasn’t famous when he committed his crimes so he got away with it! The nerve of him to look down his nose at Chris when he has skeletons in his OWN closet! If Joe Camel got a second chance to become a better person why the hell can’t Chris?

    Kanye was on his feet stannin for Chris so that’s all that matters! He even shouted out Chris when he won with Katy!

    Kanye >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Joe Camel

    Aw man! Reply:

    @King, First of all, you shut the fuck up! The lil sis thing is over rated, secondly dude stabbed a man who was somebody’s brother and son, and third, delt in drugs in which I’m sure was sold to kids, but people seems to think he is a fucking God, he ain’t no better, so he don’t have a reason to sit there and mean-mug anyone, I don’t give a damn who it is!

    [Reply]

    King Reply:

    @Aw man!, anyway jay aint thinkin bout chris jay is mature unlike chris. and y yall keep talkin bout stabbing a man and sellin drugs? i mean i dont do it but dats how it gotta be in the hood sometimes, i guess yall not familiar wit dat huh?

    sam Reply:

    @Aw man!, So agree and @ King if anybody is not being mature about it, it’s you! Jay being mature, if that’s the case, he would let the shit go, everybody including Stevie Wonder could see Jay being salty! The same reason him stabbing and selling drugs is being braught up is the same reason people keep bringing up what Chris done! Why is he so wrong and Jay ain’t, wrong is wrong. Drugs only being done in the hood, what are you talking about? Nobody is perfect, we have all done wrong and hypocrites should take a look in the mirror at themselves before looking down at others!

    King Reply:

    @Sam o god first off I didn’t say nothing about drugs only being done in the hood. But I dnt feel like going back and forth

  6. courtney

    no shade…but of course if your a DIE HARD BREEZY STAN ur gonna say it was the best of the nite so ur opinions are kind of biased…but his performance was good, even tho he DID NOT SING AT ALL… now bey adele bruno’s tribute and “the throne” those were the best of the nite in my opinion

    [Reply]

    zania Reply:

    @courtney, Actually it wasn’t only his fans giving him props, a whole lot of his peers, artist was tweeting him and did you see the standing ovation. It is very hard to do all those back flips in the air and come down dancing, his performance was epic and amazing. His BET performance was good, but this was amazing.

    Ok did Chris sing at all. I like Chris but his dance is the same. His performance was good. The best performance Adele her vocals are the best right now no one can compete with her. Bey was good. Gag now that’s a different story may have to look at it again. Jay and Kanye did good. I gotta say I love Jay he just keep it real. They put the cameras on him when Chris was performing and he didn’t even change his facial expression. Jay keep it real 100dred. Gotta love Hov, he aint pretending for no one.

    @shell517nj, he was sitting there watching the show… how is that “keeping it real” why do people look for meaning where there is none? Were you expecting him to throw panties on the stage? How did you do you find a deeper message is Jay z sitting there’s watching a show sipping a drink? Isnt that how jay is all the time?

    Sorry but y’all are hyping this up. He did the same dances we’ve always seen him do. He didn’t sing at all. Like not one word. He lip synced the entire thing. For all that, he can simply put out a dance dvd. He did not top his 2003 performance. Not even close.

    [Reply]

    zania Reply:

    @KimIsTheQueen,A whole lot of celebrities hyping this performance up too, giving him mad props. You said he is doing the same dancing he always does, did anyone on that stage tonight do anything different? I know one thing he did different that he hasn’t done, back flipping in the air.

    [Reply]

    KimIsTheQueen Reply:

    @zania, I could care less if celebrities are hyping a performance up. Celebrities have also hyped up some of the worst performances in history. Does that make it a great performance? No. Sorry but I don’t recall Beyonce doing the same routine of dances that she’s done in the last televised performance we saw tonight. Indeed he backflipped in the air. Was it a smooth transition? No.

    Haters Stay Pressed! Reply:

    @KimIsTheQueen, You dumbass his last performance was back in 2007 not 2003! He wasn’t even out then! He lip synched that performance too and it was just as epic! Chris Brown had the best performanc of the entire night as usual!

    How the hell do you expect him to dance as hard as he does, do backflips & fly through the damn air while singing at the same time? Huh?! You can’t!! Janet, Usher, Justin Timberlake have all done it before!

    When the hell have you seen him do those moves before?! When the hell has he EVER fly threw the air?! I’ll wait….

    [Reply]

    KimIsTheQueen Reply:

    @Haters Stay Pressed!, Smh another rabid CB fan. Firstly, I meant 2007. Secondly, he has done a combination of those same dances in the last 5 or so performances. I wouldn’t expect you to agree because you’re a stan. When I spoke of his 2007 performance being better, I was referring to his level of creativity and choreography. I would NEVER refer to him having great vocals because let’s be honest, he doesn’t have those. Chris spent more time hyping up his performance when he should have been spending that time at least practicing a line to actually sing. You’re ok with him lip syncing. That’s fine. But I expect more from a performer. There are plenty of artists who’ve danced hard, sang, and have been lifted through the air. You would make that sorry ass excuse for him. Does Pink ring a bell? No? How about Beyonce? Still no? Ok how about the late Michael Jackson? Oh ok. Your filthy wig has been snatched. Therefore, I won’t even bother responding to you again.

    @KimIsTheQueen, wow you sound mad salty, no need for Chris to hype up THIS performance he has already set a standard in the industry and everyone already knew it was gonna be good… Chris was on point like he always is. His 2007 performance was lipsynched as well and guess what it is still being talked about so not sure what the big deal is now. I would like to make one point tho, since you mentioned Pink doing the same thing and singing live I would encourage you to go back at look at her performance because…1 she did not sing live but did infact lipsynch and 2. Pink unlike Chris had the assistance of a partner. Chris deserves mad props for his performance and it was the best of the night and that’s no shade to anyone else!

    His dancing was so crazy so i don’t care if he didn’t sing live.Best performance of the night.Me,Kanye and Cudi don’t give a damn about what haters say.

    Chris did what we all can agree is the best performance hands down. I have to say I love how Kanye West stood the whole time for Chris and Jay Z well he did nod his head at the end of the performance. But still that didn’t make me like him at all. I love how the whole audience gave Chris that standing ovation. Chris and Beyonce are byfar the best performer of the Black American race. I will miss Beyonce now that she preggy. But again, congratulation to Chris Brown for the most memorable performance of the VMA’s.

    chris, adele and beyonce stole the show for me fair enough chris didnt sing live but I’m sorry how can u sing live wen ur doing all those hard dance move its aint as easy as some of u think (yes I’m crazy CB fan but at the same time I’m not indenial if I thought he did shit I would of sed the performance was shit), but yet again he did a 10/10 performance, I love how adeles’s performance was laid back and soothing I just love Adele she was amazing and I know that performance touched everyone, as for beyonce the woman is pregnant but she was still able to go on that stage and leave everyone breathless yet again like adele and chris she slayed, and ppl allow hating on Chris the man is trying give him a break there celebrities who has done much worse everyone deserves a second chance in life :)

  33. Drizzy

    Trippin’ cuz he lipsyncced his performance? I know for a fact that I couldn’t do a FRACTION of the shit he did, and you’re expecting him to sing on top of that? He isn’t a dancing God, but give the man the props. He had arguably the best performance, even though I will admit his dancing through the air got annoying after the 5th time he did it. But Chris Brown was just saying he would do something he’s never done before, not do the best performance ever. Swizz, Joe Jonas, and MTV hyped him up.

    [Reply]

  34. someone

    Say what you want to say, Chris Brown did the damn thang, no need to hate! He isn’t the first person to lipsync and he won’t be the last, you people find some stupid ass reasons to hate on him for, really! Damn, I be so glad when all of you nay sayers give it a rest! CB, I’m giving you mad props, keep it moving dude!
