Watch: Chris Brown ‘Turns Up The Music’ With Explosive Performance

Published: Monday 27th Feb 2012 by Sam

Yes, we know. It happened yesterday.

However, Chris Brown‘s shows-stopping NBA Halftime performance of ‘Turn Up The Music’ was buried in the depths of a Pitbull performance; hence we were likely washing the dishes, phoning a friend or doing something altogether more important than listening to the rapper’s crimes against music.

Yet, as the age old adage goes, greatness will always find a means to shine. And shine Brown did during the high octane showing.

Peep C. Breezy light up the stage like only he can below…

His first live vocal performance of the track, it’s impossible to downplay the breathing issues. That said, Chris commanded the stage like the seasoned pro he’s morphed into (at the ripe age of 22). A fact which, to some extent negates the vocal mishaps; highlighting, once again, the benefit of being multi-faceted and multi-talented as a performer – something acts such as the one he’s been baking ‘Birthday Cake(s)’ can’t say applies to them.

Solid.

Your thought?

  2. CBE February 27, 2012

    The idiot with the first comment is obviously a bored hater,Chris can sing!

    Is he beyonce? NO
    Nor Mariah or any of these divas,sure he cant sing like them he is not that talented in that department but he sang live atleast and he entertains by dancing…how many must we preach this.

    Good performance chris hopefully you take it easy on the Electro- Techo stuff.

  3. DIONFATALEI February 27, 2012

    Um Yeah, He should stick to lip singing if he’s gonna sound like that…sheesh

    Rihanna may not be the best singer or dancer but her recent Grammy performance and many others prove she puts on solid showings and she sings LIVE and it isnt bad at all.

    Rihanna is far more gifted vocally than Chris Brown, and Chirs Brown is more gifted as a dancer. So yeah

  6. aaliyah February 27, 2012

    Ladies and Gentleman.. please welcome one of the worst singers in the history of RbB…………CHRIS BROWN.

  7. StaNn February 27, 2012

    still a DANCER with a mic… just like ciara.. i love breezy but this blog give him wayyyy too much credit…

  8. NANA YAW February 27, 2012

    Woman Beater! Can’t sing at all . . . . . Sounded like a goat bleating!

  9. Mr bradshaw February 27, 2012

    Chris brown is a glorified dancer.

    I just don’t understand his appeal. Not hating. I just don’t get it.

    He isn’t that attractive. He not that great a singer. He jacks MJ dance moves and add some B2Kish, you got served moves and people are calling him the greatest entertainer? Umm no.

    Maybe I’m just not easily impressed. Don’t EVEN get me started on how I think he is just so immature and childish which just makes it even worse. Some artists win me over with their wonderful personalities. He strikes out with me in every way.

  10. Look At Him Now February 27, 2012

    Looks like he was really enjoying himself there.

    So nice to see him come into his own.

  11. Teacher February 27, 2012

    Okay……*crickets*

  12. RATEDX( LEGENDS ARE BORN NOT BOUGHT) February 27, 2012

    I love both chris and rihanna,

    but theres no way in hell rihanna sings better than chris…sorry…

    i know the majority of the negative comments is coming from people who already hates him, so its a non factor..

    chris has a great voice and also a great dancer, and michael jackson said so…

    so instead of hating on the WOMAN BEATER, take a dam valium and shove it up ur asses…

  13. RATEDX( LEGENDS ARE BORN NOT BOUGHT) February 27, 2012

    he always knows how to put on a show…thats why I cant wait to see him live….

    some people are just mad because rihanna forgave him and she doesnt give two shits about ur whinny asses..

    obviously the world has moved on also because he won a grammy and performing at huge events..

    stay mad people..stay angry..its only going to get better for the WOMAN BEATER

  14. DIONFATALEI February 27, 2012

    Chris Brown can NOT sing better than Rihanna!! Thats f****** B*******.

    Are we watching the same s***?!?! Hell he BARELY sings LIVE, This is the FIRST time ive seen him sing live. Chris Brown vocally is the equivalent of Justin Bieber. Never said he CANT sing but he is not as diverse vocally as Rihanna.

    OH and MJ was very fond of Rihanna as well. She actually had the honor of meeting him.

    **************************************

    Yea b**** that’s why Rihanna & Chris did songs together making you m************ look like a damn fool. Woman Beater well tweet Rihanna and tell her that s*** so she can let you ass have it like she let one of her own fans have it.

    Rihanna know that most of her fans are children that’s why she did what the hell she did. She let the world know about forgiving. You dumb f****.

    @CAI- saying Chris sound like Justin getting r*** now how stupid, dumb and immature is that. Someone getting rapped is not funny.

    !

  16. David February 27, 2012

    And for the ones who are not fans of Rihanna and call CB a woman beater Rihanna nor CB really don’t give a f*** what you say or think. It would be nice to see them on the beach together again lol.

  17. jamie February 27, 2012

    @ DIONFATALIE??????

    I cant believe your saying RIHANNA IS BETTER THAN CHRIS BROWN???
    That has to be a joke and you sound really childish saying that. Even a chris brown hater knows that he is talented.

    @MRBradshaw

    Right when you started your RANT with Chris brown is not ATTRACTIVE we already know your a hater.

    ALL THIS HATE IS MAKING ME BE APART OF TEAM BREEZY!!
    WHEN IS HIS ALBUM COMING OUT SO HE CAN GET MY FIRST WEEK COINS!!!!!!!

    ****************************************

    I bet you don’t think what Rihanna did by doing that song with Chris is immature & childish either.

    The Navy with their Queen. What do you think about her now.

  19. XOXO February 27, 2012

    Yawn, this is just another dance song that will be forgotten about by April.

  20. GIRLBYE February 27, 2012

    Boring. I’d rather see those two little girls on ellen

  21. patsyJ February 27, 2012

    Navy your Queen know that Chris did not beat her it was just a fight where they were hitting each other. I bet listening to the fans saying all this hateful s*** about Chris and she probably know it was not true was eating her up inside. Remember Rihanna had to have known that the media/fans was going to have a different outlook about her.But did she care NO! Now they are calling her the hateful names.

  22. patsyJ February 27, 2012

    Oh f***** wait. This is the song Rihanna sang with Chris holy s***. I wish she was there singing it with him. Chris fans seems not to give a damn but the Navy is about to kill thereselves. ha!!!

    Go on twitter CB fans say it is what it is and this is something that Rihanna wanted anyway just like The Dream stated in an article.

  23. JOSE February 27, 2012

    MJ didn’t say s*** about Chris being a great singer/dancer

  24. patsyJ February 27, 2012

    February 27, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    MJ didn’t say s*** about Chris being a great singer/dancer
    **********

    And you know what MJ never said Rihanna could sing either. This is what the Navy said that MJ said about Rihanna before.

  25. jamie February 27, 2012

    @JOSE get off this post.

    How long can you guys hate on this guy!!!! There is just so much hate that someone can take. Chris brown has the toughest SKIN because if I was in his position I would go CRAZZZZY.
    Thank god for his FANS!!!!!

    NEW TEAM BREEZY MEMBER

  26. CRAZYINLOVE February 27, 2012

    Chris is getting all the hate now so is Rihanna. Now Rihanna know what it feels like to be the outcast/hated on. Even her dumb fans have the nerve to say they hate Chris & love Rihanna but yet they are not suppoeting her. Now HOW DOES THAT SOUND.HEARING THIS FROM THE NAVY NOT SUPPOETING THEIR QUEEN. I don’t hear Team Breezy saying they are not going to support him. But the Navy are saying they are not supporting Rihanna because of what SHE HAS DONE.

  27. Trisha24 February 27, 2012

    I just read that Rihanna is sticking by CB side with that alledge robbery of the cell phone. Oh well I watched the entire half time and they ALL were good. It was Pitbull’s show and it was nice of him to let Chris do a little of his song Turn Up The Music. Pitbull ft Chris Brown Pitbull ft Ne-yo and one other song from Pitbull were 100 times better than Nicki’s performance.

  28. Roc February 27, 2012

    He’s not a “Woman Beater”… He ‘beat a woman’-once as far as any of knows. No, it is not ‘excusable’. Have you heard of him beating any other woman??? Where is all the hate when it comes to ‘real’ serial ‘beaters’ of women? They are ALL over Hollywood… Josh Brolin… Ryan O’neal… Check em out and spread the hate.

  29. Darren February 27, 2012

    he’s not good… I’ve tried to see what everyone else is raving about… why do you people insist on supporting a woman beating loser? Is that what you think of domestic violence? That it is alright and that he can be so easily forgiven because “he’s cute,” and, “he’s such an energetic dancer…” last time I checked the true artists at the grammy’s were outraged that a criminal was being allowed to perform, however brief.

  30. MichaelAngelo February 28, 2012

    Chris Brown can sing his ass off. For all the dummies who think CHris can’t sing….you need to check your self. He’s another blueprint artist. Just like MJ, Whitney, Beyonce, and Diana. Stop hating

  31. DIONFATALEI February 28, 2012

    @JAMIE

    Yes, Rihanna Vocally is better than Chris Brown.

    Chris Brown is a better dancer than Rihanna though.

    No Shade, No Delusions. Just stating my brutally honest opinion which I believe to be one heck of a factual opinion.

    Its no big deal though because he’s a male artist, shes a female artist and there totally different. I was just stating my opinion towards Sam’s stupid extra comment regarding Rihanna, which made no sense especially when he overpraised this performance but would slander anybody else if they displayed the horrid vocal showings he did.

  32. Oceanmate February 28, 2012

    “CBreezy YOU Da Best E-V-E-R

  33. tyra February 28, 2012

    LOL DID SOMENE JUST SAY RIHANNA THE GOAT IS A BETTER VOCALIST THAT CHRIS BROWN LOL DELUSION AT ITS BEST C BREEZY IS A GOOD DANCER

  34. MISHKA February 28, 2012

    A great dancer, yes but his singing was horrible, let’s keep it real. It has nothing to do with breath issues, he couldn’t even go through the first lines.

    Ne-Yo did good. Pitbull too, which is quite surprising.

  35. tyra February 28, 2012

    ON SECOND THOUGHT HE NEEDS TO WORK ON HIS LIVE PERFORMANCES IN RELATION TO SINGING THAT WAS HORRIBLE DANCING ON POINT THO

  36. J February 28, 2012

    I have not listened to the performance because I find chris brown boring nowadays but please please please. Understand, that rihanna can not sing. Practically every time you guys think she is singing live she is miming over a pre recorded track that she recorded live. She can hold a tune but to call her a singer is so WRONG! And to call her a better singer than CHRIS BROWN?!! WHAT ARE YOU ALL SMOKING?!

    Music nowadays is so sh*t I really don’t understand how you lot stand it, anyone who uses their hard earned cash to help any of these current ‘entertainers’ is an absolute mug.

  37. Nika February 28, 2012

    YALL idiots going back and forth about who is the better singer, dancer – whateva; needs to get a f****** life, lol. Yall act like ANY these folks paying yall bills. Why can’t ppl just be good at what THEY do instead of worrying about being compare to somebody else. PLEASE keep feeding the HATE that makes AMERICA. Notice how other celebrities in other countries give each other praise and uplifing – NOT AMERICA; we will continue to bring each other down and that is why we will not be the most POWERFUL Nation in the world for too much longer. Be proud of the destruction of AMERICA folks – for your hand in it will be remembered.

    On ANOTHER NOTE – CB performance was WONDERFUL. I enjoy his contribution to the music game. PEACE HATERS!!!

  38. Nika February 28, 2012

    ….another funny thing – all those who complain about who can’t SING/DANCE – where is ur music contract. I would luv to hear u sing a few bars and see how many dogs start barking, lol. I LUV THIS SITE – I can come here and see all these UNHAPPY ppl!!!! #GetALife

  39. Bey Fan February 28, 2012

    WHAT???? Chris sings wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than Rihanna….

    Chris is no Stevie or Brain…. but dude will sing an dance circles around Rihanna.

  40. Queen CI February 28, 2012
