Chris Brown Commands the Stage on ‘SNL’
Chris Brown hit the ‘SNL’ stage last night (Feb. 12), showing and proving why he’s worthy of a Grammy nomination but also a second chance. The R&B crooner’s appearance on the show comes at a time when just two years ago he was everyone’s hated performer due to his highly publicized domestic violence assault against former flame Rihanna on the night of the 51st Annual Grammy Awards. Now, after wounds have healed and domestic violence courses have been completed, it finally seems like the public is accepting the ‘Deuces’ creator back in their good graces.
Dressed in his signature bow tie and a leather jacket, CB brought out a wealth of dance moves and high energy as he performed the Euro-pop tune ‘Yeah 3X.’ From popping limbs to aerial flips, the Virginia native, backed by four male dancers, wasn’t shy in showcasing the fact he’s a true entertainer and not simply a singer standing in front of a mic.
The ‘Graffiti’ creator then turned the lights down low for his performance of “No Bull—t.’ Surrounded by a stage full of lit candles, Chris, now looking dapper in an all-black suit, asked the female audience members, “How my ladies doing tonight?” before hitting the first note of the song. By the crowd’s response, it’s apparent he was warmly received.
