Chris Brown knows how to put on a dance-tastic performance. And that’s exactly what the pop&B entertainer did at the 2011 American Music Awards on Sunday (November 20).
Donning a white T-shirt and jeans, Brown began his performance with his slow jam “All Back” alongside his band. With just a microphone stand in tow, the singer twirled around the stage and displayed some rather raw and emotional vocals. While it may have appeared to be a rather basic set, Breezy’s performance turned high-tech when the tune came to a close and the stage turned black.
Breezy continued his performance with another F.A.M.E. tune, “Say It With Me.” Keeping in sync with a computer-generated backdrop, the singer mirrored some Michael Jackson-esque moves with his four background dancers. As a spotlight followed the singer, CB pulled out an over-the-top choreographed sequence, full of backflips and spins that echoed similar backdrop technology used during Beyoncé’s “Run the World (Girls)” performance at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards.
Unfortunately for Brown, shortly after the performance, he lost his Soul/R&B Album nomination to ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
Even though Brown didn’t debut new material during his AMA set, Team Breezy can expect a batch of new tracks from the R&B singer when his new album, Fortune, drops next spring.
