    @Crandy, Stans because people see his talent? I think ALMOST every artist has had a lip synching performance. But when it’s Chris, it’s a problem. At the end of the day, three performances ain’t gone hurt. You must be one of the people giving him mean head considering the fact you’re all over this post.

    BEYONCE DANCES THE HARDEST FOR A FEMALE ARTIST HANDS DOWN. CHRIS AIN’T EVEN OWN BEY’S LEVEL – REAL TALK! MICHAEL ONLY LIP SYNC FOR LIKE AWARD SHOWS & SH*T BUT CHRIS DOES IT ALL THE TIME. EVEN HIS CONCERTS! USHER WAS NOT STRUGGLING. HE HIT NOTES & TORE THE HOUSE DOWN…

    @BOA BOA… ROCK, Pauseeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!! Beyonce IS NOT on Chris Brown’s level. Yes, she dances hard for a FEMALE artist but Chris Brown will MURDA her in a dance battle. He DOES NOT lip synch at his shows. Buy a ticket and get yo shit correct. He DOES NOT always lip synch at awards. He only has THREE times. See the THREE? You seriously had NERVE. Stop yelling.

    I’ve BEEN TO A CHRIS CONVERT THE DUDE GET’S TIRED & IS CAN ONLY DANCE. CAN’T SING LIVE – HE LOOSES HIS BREATHE AND SINGS OUT OF TUNE SOMETIMES. BEYONCE IS THE HARDEST GOING ALONGSIDE USHER!!! THOSE CHILDREN ARE SUPER-WACK.

    BeyNation Reply:

    @BOA BOA… ROCK, Those children are wack but know how to spell and who to reply to. OH. I’ve been to a Chris Brown concert as well and he SINGS and he DANCES hard as fuck. You seem to not see everyone saying Usher and Beyonce DO NOT dance as hard as Chris. Chhhhhh, Usher doesn’t even dance as hard as Beyonce. Keep that shit pushing.

    Mentamir Reply:

    @BOA BOA… ROCK, what do you know about dance to make such a statement? Chris Brown is on a professional level… That takes years of intense training for the average person. Beyoncé is an alright dancer, don’t get me wrong, but to say Chris is not on her level is not credible, because he is above her level. Don’t underestimate the complexity of his moves.

    IDONTLIKE Reply:

    @Cassidyboi, If Beyonce and MJ, even Rihanna can do it, I’m sure that dance machine we know as Chris Brown can too. It’s a awards show, why not sing live for once, he been getting by so much, he mimes more than Mariah Carey.

    [Reply]

    RitaOraAllDay Reply:

    @IDONTLIKE, He has sang live for once. He sang a little with auto-tune here as well. All the artist you just named DO NOT perform as hard as Chris. Understand that. When he takes it slower, you hear him singing.

    [Reply]

    IDONTLIKE Reply:

    @RitaOraAllDay, That whole performance was lip synched, I understand he performs hard, but cause he chooses to perform “hard” gives him a pass to lip synch on a live show. . .NO GOOD, only show he sang live was the BET Awards when he did all that FAKE crying shit

    [Reply]

    RitaOraAllDay Reply:

    @IDONTLIKE, OH? He chooses to perform hard because when a song is HARD, you don’t just STAND there. Now, he sang TUTM at the Grammy’s, he sang at the VMAs, he sang at the All Star game….. Like, really? COME CORRECT OR STAY PRESSED.

    Like I said before if you seen one Chris Brown performance, you have seen then all. Don’t give me that crap about how much he dance because Usher was dancing just as hard as Chris was, but unlike Chris he was singing live. Damn, our acceptance for good performances have become less and less.

    @Cranberry, Listen bitch, I don’t know why you don’t take your medication when you come on here but he wasn’t a backup dancer for ONE. For TWO, he didn’t lip synch the WHOLE performance. He had auto-tune too. Sitcho ass down.

    I take singing live over dancing anytime. Dancing is for videos where you Lip sing. Performing live is when you show the world that your voice is actually the voice being recorded that people hear in your video that your dancing to and lip singing.

  21. Cruz

    I’m with @Bryan. Chris sang live at the Grammy’s this year and it was the same song. Was he dancing as hard? No. Unlike Justin Bieber, he was lip synching and barely dancing. Usher has lost his groove. Yeah, he can sing but so can Chris; he’s just dancing more heavier. Give him a break.

    I hate when People say “he doesn’t have to sing live he is dancing that hard. Back in the day MJ and Usher brought their dance moves just as hard and they still managed to sing live at pretty much every performance. If Chris cn’t dance that hard and sing at the same time he need to moderate, Sing live and dance hard at certain parts of the song. Don’t pretend to sing. Didn’t Britney Spears recieve hate for doing the same thing

    [Reply]

    Joseph Reply:

    @Miles, No matter how excellent MJ and Usher is, they never…. No one’s ever…. Done what Chris has as far as dancing wise. MJ has lip synch plenty of times but he never flipped multiple times and such and such. Britney Spears? Seriously? Britney STAYS lip synching. Chris has sang live at a award show this year, so…….

    [Reply]

    Miles Reply:

    @Joseph, Chris Brown can never be on MJ’s level Vocally and Dancing wise. They are not even a comparison. And Usher is a 10x better artist than CB. and CB is basically a male Britney Spears. He RARELY sings live. They could take any dancer on that stage and gave him the headset instead of CB and it would have been the exact same thing. But its only “amzing” because Chris Brown is the one dancing to the music. The soul of a performance comes from the artist actually singing

    [Reply]

    . Reply:

    @Miles, So if MJ isn’t a comparison, why did you compare him to CB in the post? MJ has the moves and the vocals but he never danced liked CB is dancing. CB is young, creative, and energetic. He took the tools he learned from MJ and turned it into something only for CB. Usher doesn’t even dance on CB’s level so I don’t see the comparison. He didn’t get signed because he can dance, he got signed because he can sing. He’s sang at award shows this year, just not at DWTS and this award show. Go suck the barely dancing, lip synching JB dick. Thank you.

    @Miles, Now everyone’s retarted because they don’t agree with YOU. Now his performance was the worst of the night because everyone’s not agreeing with YOU. Your ass chose to be on this website all the time, so everyone that comes on this website is not as retarted as YOU. Chris Brown ALWAYS has a creative set. He NEVER does some plain ass set that you seen before. You have a problem with that? Who the fuck cares! Everyone can do any CHOREOGRAPHY but when your gift was to DANCE, no one can compare. You don’t see NO ONE flipping on a stage, jumping, etc. and singing at the same time. A choreography is a choreography. Besides the guy sang this song live at the Grammys and All Star game. Give him his credit! Every other song he sings! Bitch ass nigga.

    @\ S@L@ I am a huge Chris Brown fan and Purchased every cd. But he is been putting out disappointing music and has been making disappointing performance.

    First of all younguns,I am 59,I have seen the best of MJ from the time he was little.MJ was and still is the King.At first I thought Usher might be the one to reign along side of MJ,but Chris Brown is the bomb he has a beautiful voice and he has his own style of dance that I love to watch.If you want to hear how pure his voice is watch that Christmas movie he made some years back,that had all the black stars in it.

    not everybody writing diaries on how they feel. this dude is gifted. y’all seriously are over dramatic. every time he performs this song in the paste of Usher, Michael, and Beyonce, he’s singing. when he’s dancing over those artist he either sings or lip synch. he only lip synch this song twice. I don’t understand why y’all are using “he never sings live”; it’s dramatic. this performance kept my attention.

    I’m being attacked for stating my opinion on CB performance. If he wants to be as great as MJ and Usher he will have to start Singing and Dancing at the same damn time. Usher gave us a performance. I can watch CB dance in videos!! I’d like to hear him sing a ballot on an award show! If you want to be a platinum recording artist like Usher Raymond, then sing a dance your heart out. The winter fur coat, nasty tats, and woman bandana is NOT going to do it for most viewers!

    @Eeica, Nobody is ATTACKING you. You just said you’re stating YOUR opinion, so they’re stating THEIR opinion. Chris is already just as good as Usher and dancing wise, as Micheal Jackson. He is a platinum recording artist. He does sing and dance live, he just chose to lip synch and auto-tune this song because he was dancing hard. Nobody at this award show danced as hard as him but Justin was lip synching. Like, WHY? Y’all make a big deal out a a few performances as if Mj hasn’t done it. I can’t take it.

    Yeah so he should just become a professional dancer or something and give up on his “musical” career since thats all he does when he performs now. whatever.. he’s a GREAT dancer… thats all I got tbh.

  41. Terrence

    Regardless to if he was singing or not, he still managed to entertain his audience. They were the livest when he came on. He sang this song live at all the shows in Supafest, Grammys, and All star game. When he does sing the song live and he’s breathing in the mic, y’all talk about him. When he lip synch, yall talk about him. He only did three performances like this, gosh. What do you guys want from him? Yall are cruel. You always pick the little things and make it huge. What would Jesus do? Think about it.

    The REAL question is why everyone is downing CB on lip syncing when Usher and JB did the same last night aswell? Hmmmmmm, i wonder.

    When CB sung and danced he’s bum off at the AMA last year, haters were STILL hating.
    When he sang live at the GRAMMYS and was jumping from block to block AND THEN sang again live with David G and won his first grammy,what were people doing? Hating. All i saw was WB this, WB that.
    When he performed on Dancing With The Stars and showcased his dancing because it was a DANCING show. What were the comments? “Why is he dancing? Why isnt he singing live? He should have pre-recorded his vocals”
    NOW, when he performed last night and PRE-RECORDED his vocals, gave amazing concepts and visuals and danced his bum off, people STILL find a way to put him down.SMD
    Dont pretend that the lip – syncing bothers you. The real reason u hate on him is because Chris,his team and Us (TeamBreezy) wont stop being great. Someone of u guys will find any excuse to find fault in him.
    Give him props when he does well and give criticism when its valid. Not hate. Plus, have your own opinion. I see alot of people just copying and pasting opinions. Think for yourself and dont get carried away behind your keyboards. Chris Lip-Syncing is not a big deal.

    Cant wait for July 3rd so that CB and TB can laugh in all your faces. #SHAMEONYOU! #SWERVELIFE!
