Chris Brown Performs ‘Fine China’ at Billboard Music Awards

Chris Brown

Chris Brown paid homage to Michael Jackson during his energetic set at the Billboard Music Awards. Breezy turned the stage into Chinatown, working up a sweat as he performed his first X single “Fine China” with his dancers and MJ’s guitarist Orianthi. He closed by striking a silhouette pose just like his icon.

While he thrilled with his dance moves, his vocals weren’t as impressive. “Lil hoarse for the performance but it happens. Good shit otherwise,” tweeted Breezy.

Watch his killer set below.

    Probably one of the worst singers of this new generation. Gagging at those vocal cracks.

    @m.i.k.e., He may not make all the right decisions. But he is human and give credit where credit is due. He is ultra talented and tonight could have happened to anyone. If you look at other show’s it has happened to even the late great Whitney Houston. The performance was still great because of his dance performance. And yes he could have lipped sing but as a true artist he gave you himself. So get over it people and let him live. At the end of the day he gave a great performance and the sing is jamming. If you are tired of Michael Jackson tributes. I suggest you not listen to music anymore. Because Justin Timberlake and Usher along with others go hard doing the Jackson honors also. Enclosing grow up and let Chris Brown live. Or better yet invite into a day of your life when and let him judge you. Then you can talk!

    They really don’t. But even when they DO, they make it their own. Chris is nothing more than a tired tribute act. He even went as far as taking Michael’s guitarist. Zzzz.

    @BEDSTUYFLY, OK AFTER ACTUALLY WATCHING THE VIDEO, I RETRACT MY PREVIOUS COMMENT.
    CHRIS BROWN SOUND’S COKED UP. SIMPLY AWFUL. LIKE SINCE WHEN IN HIS ENTIRE CAREER HAS HIS VOICED CRACKED AND BEEN SO FLAT BEFORE?
    I WISH HIM THE BEST.

    @Cranberry, Not even close to one of the worst… Christopher can sing but he hasnt been honing his craft the way he should be lately. Too much partying and the lifestyle that comes with it has distracted him from perfecting his craft. Its a shame he’s letting his legacy slip away. He needs to do some vocal training to get his voice and breathing control back. I saw him live back in 07 and his vocals were amazing but he’s losing it. Hopefully he can get it back : )

    Yeah the voice Chris…otherwise dancing was good, I kept telling TeamBreezy STOP LYING TO THIS KID we need to help him instead of saying great job to everything. I wanted him to lip sync after I saw Wild Jam 2013.

    So most of that performance was dancing, playback and when it come to him doing the big notes he was pushing that mic as far away from his face as possible :| Also the MJ thing is just boring as hell now your just taking iconic moves and coping them not even being bothered to add your own twist like hang up the mic and go become a judge on a dance show…

    Um, well, I like the song even though it is biting the entire fucking hell out of Michael Jackson but this performance, aside from the manic dancing, was a hot mess. Less weed and coke, more vocal lessons please!!

  14. Grant

    Terrible. The song is pretty good even though it’s nothing original but I’m sure he will be embroiled in Twitter beef before the night is over as soon as some celebrity tells the truth about him.

  15. karamelkisses

    i’m sorry but is it just me or is this entire show shit? jennifer lopez is running around stage looking like a yo gabba gabba reject lip synching about living it up at 45 years old. justin beiber, just no. taylor swift, when did you become a pop artist? chris did a decent job, the dancing was on par of course the vocal not so much. i’m seriously worried about the music of this new generation.

    Man listen….at the end of the day he ADMITTED he knew he was hoarse. Y’all gonna stop acting like this mad is a bad person and y’all gonna stop acting like he isn’t a gifted artist/songwriter. Y’all act like a bunch of bitches, hating on somebody you don’t like. Tired of the MJ tributes from him? DO YOU’RE TIRED OF HIM PAYING HOMAGE TO THE MAN HE LOOKED UP TO, that DIED? Just chill. Cause the hate is oozing out y’all ears right now. So mad

    [Reply]

    Wow Reply:

    @Zay, stop! He knew he sounded like shit when he was rehearsing but he kept hyping it up. His team was hyping it too talking about some no CB isn’t lip syncing tonight. Real talent will be on display tonight. As soon as he finished the performance his team deleted the tweets lmao. Now did he think smoking those cigarettes while stepping off his bus would do him justice? Now let’s be real. He made tribute to MJ when he was 16 and he’s STILL paying tribute to him now? In every performance? It’s TIRED! Get over it.

    Chris’ performance even with off vocals far exceeded any if the other acts for the night with the exception of Prince of course (respect to the legend). Chris was the only energetic and exciting performance period and one of the few that actually sang live with flawless choreography. People want a reason to hate and criticize him no matter what he does but its good to kno that even on his worse day he rips the stage better than most!!! Thank You Chris Brown you did your thing and you should be proud I kno I am!!!

    That was embarassing to watch none of his notes were in place terrible now if you want to do MJ you gotta sing on point and dance on point.
