I'm no fan of Chris Brown fan; in fact, I'm whatever the opposite of fan it is when it comes to him. But last night when he broke down during the 2010 BET Awards while performing a Michael Jackson tribute, I felt for him.
He did the King of Pop proud when it came to his performance, and perhaps he felt the words hitting too close to home when he started to sing "Man in the Mirror"?
Of course, given his past, people are questioning if the emotion was genuine or not. Personally, I think it looked real, so I guess I'd give him the benefit of the doubt.
In other BET Awards news ... a noticeably pregnant and radiant Alicia Keys gave an amazing performance and took home two awards: One for Best Female R&B Artist and another for Best Collaboration on "Empire State of Mind" with Jay Z, who wasn't in attendance.
One of my other favorite performances of the night came from Eminem. With a gospel choir behind him he sang "Not Afraid".
Prince was honored with a BET Lifetime Achievement Award.
"I'm just so thankful to be a part of this world of music," Prince said. "Thanks for a wonderful night. I'll never forget it as long as I live."
Did you watch the BET Awards? Do you think Chris Brown's emotions were genuine?
