Chris Brown VMA Performance: Dancing to Nirvana, Flying Across Stage

by at . Comments

So often embroiled in controversy, Chris Brown is making headlines Monday morning for the reason he'd like - his performance at MTV's Video Music Awards.

Dressed in a white formal suit, the performer gyrated to "Yeah 3X," then further showcased his moves to the 1993 Wu-Tang classic "Protect Ya Neck."

His routine then moved even further back in time with a surprise dance number to Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Anybody see that one coming?

Chris Brown finished his performance with his current hit, "Beautiful People," elevating high above the crowd via invisible wires. Peep it below ...

@hater hitler, Do you realize that Rihanna actually follows him on twitter and probably is talking to him behind doors. You hate him for what he did to Rihanna, but she has forgave him and moved on. You sound like you have personal issues that you trying to take out on Chris.

This was the best performance of the night. The young man made a terrible mistake 2 yrs ago! He owned up to it like a man and is moving on like a man. It can't be easy to continue working, that's what he's doing folks,in the face of dealing with the harsh reality of what he's done. He really is to be commended. Somehow a young black man doesn't deserve a second chance. Typical of this society. Our young black men CAN are not throways.

Hilton Hater STFU! The kid was 19 for God's Sake! Has he repeatedly apologized? Yes. Done the community service? Yes. Asked for forgiveness numerous times? Yes. WTF do you want? It's a ton of things I did at 19 I regret, like everyone else. Cut the "moral police" crap out, it's getting old. Enjoy the performance or shut up. Seriously

Did he beat up any women at the 'awards' show?

@100% Amazing: if you think we defend Mel Gibson, you have clearly never read a word of our site. Don't come at THG with accusations of racism without actual knowledge of our site. You say this is a race issue? I say it's a talent/looks issue. Can you look at yourself in the mirror and claim you'd defend a woman beater if he were an overweight custodian? You like Chris Brown because he's good looking and can dance well and you have this utterly warped, entirely non-fact based view that race is somehow an issue. I am calling out a woman beater. He repeatedly punched a woman in the face and sent her to the hospital. I'm gonna rest pretty easy tonight in that stance, thank you, no matter how many dance moves Brown busts out.

@Hilton hater: i can't believe that you really want your blog to strickly be about hate?! they way you keep coming back to attack me! Chris Rock said, the worst thing is not racism, but acting suprised when it happens. Who ever you are,=> just a wide guess now=> YOU ARE WHITE?! Bwhahahahaha! thats a given. Now am not generalizing the white community, atleast Linsey Lohan just asked Chris on a date so..... but unfortunately, even with a Black president, white folks still have excuse to express their hatred for young successful black men. Don't act like you care about domestic abuse, => there are many examples from your own race=> Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson etc (love these guys), but ignoring the fact that he was still virtually a baby himself when this error happen unlike the older white folks, you keep hunting him.

@Hilton Hater: And you're doing a good job at bashing him. Congratulations. Now why don't you bash more artists that did mistakes? You seem pretty good at it.
