When Chris Brown accepted AOL’s Fandemonium Award at the the 2010 BET Awards he thanked his supporters by saying “I let you down once, I’ll never do it again.” He was obviously referring to the 2009 assault of his ex-girlfriend, R&B singer Rihanna. However, by the time he accepted that award the audience was already in the palm of his hands, still in awe of the Michael Jackson tribute he performed earlier that evening.
As impressive as the blazing footwork and choreography was, the most poignant moment came when Brown began sobbing during “Man In The Mirror.” Whether it was for Micheal or for his own transgressions, the tears were uncontrollable. Almost a year after being banned from the very same Awards show Chris Brown finished to applause that filled the stadium.
What do you think? Was this the redemption of Chris Brown? Or Was he looking for sympathy? Watch the clip and let us know!
