Frank Ocean ran through his entire 2013 Grammy Awards performance.

Sort of. As the maestro stood behind a podium, playing piano, a video projected in front of the podium to make it look as if he were running the entire time.

“Forrest Gump” style. Watch him perform his song by that name below:

Frank Ocean Grammy Performance 2013

In addition to winning Most Swagtastic Suit, Ocean was among the 2013 Grammy winners Sunday, taking home Best Urban Contemporary Album.

As he took the stage to accept the award, the entire crowd gave him a standing ovation … except for one guy. Follow the jump to see what we mean …


Yup … Chris Brown, whose album Fortune was nominated in the same category, was fittingly the only one not standing (though he was clapping).

Tensions between the two singers is apparently still high following last month’s Chris Brown-Frank Ocean fight at a recording studio in West Hollywood.

Witnesses told deputies that Brown punched Ocean during a beef over a parking space, Frank Tweeted that he “got jumped by Chris and a couple guys…”

Ocean told police his version of events, but later said he would not pursue criminal charges against Brown, who has not commented on the matter.

Brown also made headlines last night for cozying up to Rihanna. A lot.
