Chris Brown returned to the Grammy Awards for the first time in three years Sunday night, notching a win for Best R&B album and putting on a spirited live performance.
Three years after assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the Grammys, Brown (who was convicted of felony assault) took that Staples Center stage.
The 22-year-old won over the crowd with a glow-in-the-dark rendition of "Turn Up the Music" and "Beautiful People." Take a look at the singer's effort below ...
There were no innuendos or screen cuts to ex-flame Rihanna. Chris Brown simply finished his songs, stood triumphantly and saluted the crowd before taking a bow.
Breezy - as Brown is nicknamed - made the night an even bigger success when he went on to win his first ever Grammy Award, for Best R&B Album for F.A.M.E.
"People who make mistakes and learn from them are ROLE MODELS too. Im just happy to inspire growth and positivity, #TEAMBREEZYdidit" Brown tweeted.
The haters and the skeptics remain in large quantities, but if his actions continue to match such words, he'll be on his way to a great career comeback.
