Chris Brown isnt here tonight so Im accepting this award on his behalf. Excuse me, she said, raising her index finger at the crowd. Chill out. Kelly Rowland said you ain't gonna cut me off Chris Brown needs his flowers November 21, 2022 The crowd settled immediately afterward, eventually leading to cheers once Rowland finished her speech. The award show allegedly pulled Chris Browns performance at the last minute. Over the weekend, he said that the AMAs canceled his tribute to Michael Jackson, along with a performance of Under The Influence. He shared footage of his rehearsals, writing WOULDVE been the ama performance but they cancelled me for reasons unknown. A post shared by BROWN (@chrisbrownofficial) The decision caused an uproar among fans. However, The Game felt as if hip-hop and R&B, as a whole, shouldve stood by the R&B singer instead of attending the event. When they pulled @chrisbrownofficials performance from the AMAs, all hip hop & R&B artists shouldve declined to, he wrote. But well never be that unified & thats why they keep & will always use us, suck the culture dry & disrespect us in our faces & behind our backs.
