Over the objections of Tom Bergeron, Cheryl Burke and a host of others, Chris Brown performed on Dancing With the Stars' first results show of the season Tuesday.
Brown actually performed twice - first his new hit "Yeah 3x," then an encore medley of "Forever" and "Beautiful People" - bringing the house down both times.
If there were boos, they weren't audible over the cheers for a guy who put his all into each routine and looked very, very happy to be there. Here's his first effort:
After Brown's now-infamous Good Morning America meltdown, many were shocked (and more than a few upset) that ABC would let him keep this DWTS gig.
Whatever the reason for not pulling the plug, Brown was clearly grateful, and repaid them with a terrific live performance, as you can see above and below.
His fans surely loved this spirited live effort. His detractors will continue to lament that he appeared on DWTS at all and loathe his existence in general.
All we can do is hope that he's turned the page. Follow this link to see who was eliminated last night, then watch Chris' second performance after the jump:
