Chris Brown performs on 'Dancing With the Stars' without discussing 'GMA' incident

Dancing With the Stars left well enough alone with Chris Brown, who pre-taped two songs for Tuesday’s elimination show without talking to host Tom Bergeron.

The thought was that Brown would have to answer questions about the now infamous incident on Good Morning America. But instead, he came in early — Bergeron was nowhere to be found, though the judges were there — to perform “Yeah 3x” and a medley of “Forever” and “Beautiful.” The latter number was electrifying — quite literally, as Brown’s backup dancers were outfitted with special suits that lit up during the exhilarating number. Viewers won’t see it, but the performance actually required multiple takes because some wouldn’t illuminate. At one point, Brown quipped “I hope this is the last time!” It wasn’t, but at least it gave members of the studio audience a chance to yell things like “I love you, Chris Brown!”

His first performance was a real crowd pleaser, because Brown mixed up his smooth moves with several crotch grabs and a center stage back flip under the mirror ball. (Try following that up, Maks!)

After the taping, Brown scurried off the stage so the crew could prepare for the live show.

    I do not want to see Chris brown he doesn’t deserve to be on there, especially after what he did on gma.

    • stu

      our new MJ all the way!!!

      • CHERYL JONES

        OH GREAT, ABUSER AND A CHILD MOLESTER.

      • Evil Melvin!!

        stu….there was no reason to bring up Michael Jackson. Remeber he was acquitted! So a statement like that makes you seem more like someone who is trying to cover up their own misdeeds. You’ve done something creepy to little boys/girls haven’t you…stu???

      • @evil

        He slept with strange children in his bed. OJ was aquitted too. Your point?

      • anon

        u know.. white people are jumping at any chance to talk bad about another black man.. how typical..Im not suprised.. half of u don’t listen to rhianna or never heard chris brown, but as soon as u hear something negative about a black man.. u don’t waste a sec bashing him.. Bash charlie sheen or something

      • BlackIrish4094

        @anon, not just white people, intelligent people. Which you don’t seem to be. BTW, your comment is racist or do you only believe lighter skin people can be racist?

      • BlackIrish4094

        And I also think MJ was guilty, acquitted does not mean innocent just not guilty in the eyes of the law.

    • king makers

      Brown boy, great job as always, lets leave those judgemental morons with their foot in their mouth now, See you on 106 & park later. 1# Album in the nation! wow, you haterz have completely failed

      • CA

        Seriously? I hope you’re joking. He’s extremely talented, no doubt. But he needs help, sadly.

      • Keisha M.

        Failed? No you fail at life king makers. I’m sure you’re going to live a happy life supporting your abusive baby daddy. Me? I know better. This man should not be representing us.

      • Helena

        Riiiiight, king makers. Just because an album is at #1 doesn’t mean it’s a good one. Next thing you’ll be telling us is that you eat **** because 100,000,000 flies can’t be wrong.

      • Idislikeu

        @kingmakers,
        Take your ghetto self back of to Rap Up with that garbage,you uneducated fool.Chris Brown has the #1 R&B album,not the #1 album in the nation dummy.Get a life and give Fist Brown his balls back!

      • Aunt Sassy

        Sorry, he’s not a “boy” – he’s a man and should honestly start acting like one.

      • Sam

        @Idislikeu, Try again. Chris Brown has the number one ALBUM in the country, R&B or otherwise.

    • Natasha

      I agree. I turned the TV off when they announced him. I’ll check back here to see who was sent home or see it on the morning news. Seeing him on the show even after his conviction and recent fit turned my stomach. My oldest daughter asked me why I turned it off and I just told her exactly why.

      • Miss Talk

        LOL,
        You know your daughter still can and probably will catch the performance online, right?
        Why do you bother so much for someone you don’t even know? he was only there for like 8 minutes.
        i guess like most of people you’re just afraid to like his work or to lke him again. Otherwise , his appearance on DWTS would do nothing to you.

      • fourresa

        u know I dont agree with everything that he did but people make mistakes he who is without sin cast the first stone

      • Jesus

        (throws stone)

      • amy

        Okay Jesus, I’ve had kind of a trying day and I really laughed out loud when I read your post. I’m awfully glad you have such a fine sense of humor.

      • cg

        I will only comment of the performance. He was tremendous. But why even bother wearing a mic whne you only half heartedly are lip synching. The fake singing was awful.

    • southern girl

      it is amazing how others can point out others flaws, but not acknowledge their own. I do not agree with how Brown reacted in the past, but that was in the past. How can anyone ever truly prove themselves rehabilitated, if people are constantly reminding them of their past. It is seems that some people’s only purpose is to bring others down, and i just do not agree with it. I am glad that DWTS gave Brown a chance. He did a great job!!!!!!

      • alex

        Mark my words he will one day flip out again and really hurt someone and then what will you say?

      • Lila

        It wasn’t the PAST. It was just last week. He threw a cooler into a window smashing glass into the street just last week. Besides, lip syncing badly is not a “great job”.

    • LOL

      Brown is an OJ in the making. How long before he kills someone?

      • Jamal

        Why is he like OJ? Because they’re black? Way to stereotype black people. The racism on this board is sickening.

      • suze

        Jamal, he’s like OJ because they both were vilent towards women and assumed little to no responsibility for it To automatically conclude that the only thing they have in common is that they’re black is offensive to all black men since it reinforces stereotypes. Manu, many, many black men arfe proud of who they are and are not violent towards women. Why don’t we work towards supporting these types of men and not spoiled mamma boys like Chris Brown.

      • Loch Ness

        Jamal, because one is a killer and one is on his way to being one.

      • bh

        Hide all knives…

      • nina

        y does he have 2 b like oj LoL & Suze? he sounds more like mel gibson 2 me!! lol!! wut idiots!

    • MissVampireDiaries

      He already performed and left. you can turn your telly back on.

    • Lisa

      John 8:7
      They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”

      • @Lisa

        Really?? Bad enough this topic has turned into racist rants and you want to throw religion in? Dump a pile of politics in and all the wackos can join in. Good Grief.

    • Real as Ever

      Do you actually know the truth about what happen no you only know what was reported! He is a great performer & he deserves to be there just as much as anybody else. GOD FORGIVES DONT U!

    • Elanor

      Do you watch two and a half men? Just wondering….

    • Blue Silver

      The producers of DWTS should have gotten Duran Duran! These guys have an awesome new album out and have been appearing in the late night talk shows!!! Sure hope they make an appearance soon!!!!

  • Lisa Simpson

    When it started, I thought they had relegated Brown to the back alley. Too bad.

  • Cindy Miller

    Chris Brown should sing not lip sink!!!!!!! What a loser

    • @

      And Cindy Miller should not attempt proper spelling. Sink?? Really?? Lmaooooo

      • cg

        Agree. Cindy should not post comments!

    • Lisa

      SHUT UP!

    • Zakry

      I have to agree Cindy. Just shut up.

  • Fe

    Chris Brown is a disgrace

  • alex

    And of course he got a standing ovation. You gotta love this country…

    • Connie

      @ Alex Yea, and would this country be alot better if it had more positive, perfect people like you?

    • MissVampireDiaries

      It was truly wonderful!

  • CHERYL JONES

    CHRIS BROWN IS A DISGRACE AND HE SHOULD NOT BE ON DWTS. ITS NOT LIKE HE WASNT CONVICTED. I AM WATCHING NOW JUST TO SEE HOW THE CROWD AND STAFF REACTION IS, ITS HORRIBLE, YOU SHOULD OF HAD RHIANNA ON INSTEAD OF THIS PIECE OF TRASH. SHAME ON DWTS. STANDING OVATION FOR CHRIS BROWN, THE POSTER BOY FOR VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN. I WONT BE TUNING IN ANY LONGER.

    • melody

      Your a disgrace for being human. Who are you to judge. I believe thats GOD role. You have one life why try and pull someones else down. One day you will have to meet your maker. Be prepared.

      • heather

        “You’re” a disgrace for being human? Lol, isn’t it human to judge? And boy if anyone deserves to be judged it’s him. It’s pretty easy to see what an arrogant and abusive a sswipe he is.

      • @melody

        Stick a sock in it. You get to state your opinion and guess what-SO DO WE! It’s NOT passing judgment to state he should NOT be on DWTS. And who are you to judge someone’s opinion? Hmm? Who are you miss judgmental? Get off your soapbox and be prepared to face your consequences.

      • @@melody

        Okay, not to state the SUPER obvious but you realize that you are doing the exact same thing you are criticizing her for?

      • @melody

        God called. He told me he likes Chris Brown. He loved that backflip. He hated your post. Look out. Melody? Melody? Uhoh.

      • @melody

        “YOUR” a disgrace as a poster! And a digrace for “being human”.

    • Ariel

      @Cheryl – You seem to have way more anger problems than Chris. Are you sure you didn’t escape from a mental institution??? We get it, you don’t like Chris. Now, go take your meds!!!

      • TVFan

        Shut up Ariel, you’re stupid! Don’t give Cheryl crap.

    • Zakry

      Chris Brown doesn’t care what you think. All that cap typing for nothing.

  • B Nola

    Nice family show until you add the convicted felon who does not take responsibility for his behavior. He still has anger management problems as of last week. Really couldn’t find anyone more appropriate? Abusing women should not be tolerated even if you can dance.

    BN

  • Beverly

    Does chris brown really have to hold his crouch when he sings. Thought only perverts did that …….

    • @Beverly

      Well it would have been much more offensive if he had of held his “crotch”. Geeez.

    • MissVampireDiaries

      MJ did it.

      • suze

        ’nuff said.

      • @

        case and point…

  • Connie

    Chris Brown was awesome!!!

    • No, he wasn’t

      And, shame on Dancing with Stars for having him on.

    • CHERYL JONES

      GUESS YOU HAVE NEVER KNOWN ANYONE WHO HAS SUFFERED PHYSICAL ABUSE AT THE HANDS OF A MAN OR WOMAN. EVEN THEN THIS SHOULD BE A NO BRAINER EVEN FOR YOU.

      • Benoreno

        I was physically abused by an ex-boyfriend and my father. I’ve forgiven both of them and am in a healthy relationship, praise God. If it bothers you to see Chris Brown, avoid him and don’t support his career. If DWTS screened every act to ensure they haven’t done something bad in their past, we’ll end up with “Up With People” performing every week.

      • Casey

        Sorry but it’s not like his criminal behavior was hidden. It’s clear as day that this guy is pure garbage and it sets a bad example for women and men on a family-type show.

      • Ariel

        @Cheryl – You seem to have way more anger problems than Chris. Are you sure you didn’t escape from a mental institution??? We get it, you don’t like Chris. Now, go take your meds!!!

      • Maria

        Chris Brown is not responsible for whatever your father, husband, brother, grandpa, nephew, niece, godmother, godfather, sister, aunt, uncle, cousin, best friend, pet rock has done! When people listen to James Brown, Tommy Lee The Beatles(yes, some of them did it too) do you bring up your family members sins? Chris got into fight with Rihanna, he didn’t abuse Rihanna

      • Elanor

        Same thing here. I have been in an abusive relationship and forgiven the man and REMAIN married to him today. I am HUMAN enough to know that people make mistakes and that they shouldnt be condemned for the rest of their lives. My husband got help and with my help he overcame what was inside of him and he is a wonderful husband, father and provider. Chris should keep doing what he LOVES and IGNORE the HYPOCRITICAL HATERS! Like they have never made a damn mistake….

    • TVFan

      Chris Brown is not awesome. He looks to be a jerk. BTW, Connie, you must support those who abuse others.

    • margaret

      oh,chris brown done it up on that show,oh yes he was AWESOME,haters shut up,go to bed.he is talented and he performed very well.

  • Kate

    I’m so done with Dancing With the Stars. What used to be my favorite show has become the definition of bad taste. Last year wasn’t bad enough. I thought I’d give it another try. Now air time to an abuser. I’m done with this show. What a shame.

    • melody

      Shame on you. Let one without sins cast the first stone. GOD is watching you.

      • alex

        Take that God crap and shove it up your behind melody. I hope a man severely beats you someday, maybe then it will knock some sense into you. In fact, every single woman that defends this As$clown needs the s h!t kicked out of them.

      • @melody

        Pipe down melody! You seem to be carrying on awful lot of stones in your pocket. Guess what? God is watching you too.

      • LOL

        Jesus would slap the sh** out of Melody.

      • Now Alex!!!

        that was totally uncalled for. what would you say if a female family member or friend was abused? what you say because it may come back and take of your a$$.

  • SillyBilly

    Chris Brown just gave the worst Milli Vanilli copy act I have ever seen in my life. My 6 year old boy could lip synch that song better than Chris Brown could!

  • rea

    Greatful ABC didn’t listen to the perfect ppl who never mess up in anything and had him perform as scheduled. Gotta love it!

    • @rea

      Seriously, no none of us are perfect. However, men that beat up their girlfriends and then whine to anyone and everyone that will listen that he’s moved on so should the rest of us is a BABY! Wrong, this dude is a walking time bomb. He did not learn a thing from what he did and I hate that Dancing with Stars turned a blind eye to it.

  • CHERYL JONES

    CHRIS BROWN IS A DISGRACE. ALL THE GREAT PERFORMERS (WAY BETTER THEN BROWN)TO CHOOOSE FROM AND YOU CHOOSE THE RECENT POSTER BOY FOR VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN. WHY DOES HOLLYWOOD CONTI UE TO REWARD SUCH HORRIBLE BEHAVIOR. A BETTER CHOICE OF PERFORMER TONIGHT WOULD OF BEEN RHIANNA. THE POSTER WOMAN ON TEACHING OUR YOUNG GIRLS TO NOT TOLERATE THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOR EVER. SHAME ON DWTS. I WILL NO LONGER TUNE IN. CHERYL BURKE IS RIGHT ON THE MONEY………….

    • Miss Talk

      A BETTER CHOICE OF PERFORMER TONIGHT WOULD OF BEEN RHIANNA. THE POSTER WOMAN ON TEACHING OUR YOUNG GIRLS TO NOT TOLERATE THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOR EVER.
      ___________________________

      Girl please, you don’t need to write this a bazillion times, we got it, you don’t like him.
      As for Rihanna , the “poster woman”, she never claimed that responsability. You should on Perez and read what she said about her song S&M and how she likes to be whipped and so on.
      Why do you even care about him? If he is a loser then you shouldn’t pay attention to him. Some people need mediaction on this blog…

  • Cathy

    ARe you serious… You guys really need to step off of Chris Brown… you don’t know the whole picture and judge by what the media only bothers to show you… Chris only wanted to promote his new album and move on with his life and you ignorant individual who swear are gifts who never made a mistake in their damn lives wont let things go past it… seriously I wish I was there so instead of him doing that I would punch her in the face he kindly worked around the question 3 times and she insisted on pushing and pushing if you were in his shoes I bed ur lamn selves would do the same but you haven nothing better to do then to judge … so this country man you problably shouldn’t even be in this country so shut ur mouth…

    • Joe

      Cathy, It’s not about stepping off or stepping on Chris and it’s not even about being able to forgive or not forgive him, all of us deserve a second and perhaps subsequent chance, but there is one big thing missing with Chris Brown and that is HUMILITY. Show some of that and people will give him grace in abundance. You talkin about punching Robin Roberts for him if you were on the show describes it all… Nuff said! Lose the cyber muscles!!

    • cathy’s voice of reason

      I take it back. Chris Brown is an idiot and so am I for defending him. I have been brainwashed by the media to think that this turd is a shining example of the American Dream. I was wrong. He is part of the nightmare that erodes hope. I hate him, and I hate myself for ever liking him.

      • Dbail

        all of you people really need 2 get over your selves your not perfect and nether is he. its like ever time he make a mistake its people like you that make him go crazy like that. Really just leave the kid alone you wanna worry about him and talk all that trash, he is not worried about his haters an nethier am i so save your breathe an juss shut the hell up

      • Dbail

        cathy’s voice of reason gurrlll shut the hell up really cause you dont understand nothing. It shouldnt take others people opions to change your own. That just shows how weak minded you are

      • shell517nj

        you can’t be serious. how old are you? lol.

      • G

        First of all, I agree with Cathy’s first statement, GMA continuously hovered of the Rihanna situation and not focused on his new album. Yes, it was probably mentioned that what Chris did two years ago would be mentioned briefly, but not for the entire interview. I mean, come on. The media heightens things way too much. Yes, Chris did wrong but he is trying to get on with his life. Yes, he has anger issues and needs more help with that but talking all this crap about him doesn’t do anything. How can anyone heal or improve themselves when people out there judge too quickly and have already blackballing the individual.

    • Steph

      Really? How could you say that, especially if you’re a woman. It’s really disappointing that America thinks we should just “move past” things like this. Putting your hands on a woman is completely unacceptable no matter how attractive you are or how well you sing/dance. News flash, the ones against Chris Brown are not the ignorant ones.

    • CHERYL JONES

      CONVICTED FELON,CONVICTED, CONVICTED NOT BY THE MEDIA IN COURT. YOU MADE NO SENSE NO SENSE AT ALL. SUPPORT THE LOSER. BY THE WAY A MISTAKE IS FORGETTING TO PAY YOUR BILLS, NOT BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF YOUR GIRLFRIEND, IM GLAD I DONT LIVE IN YOUR WORLD.

      • Jaz

        CHERYL JONES – YOU SOUND LIKE A CRAZY PSYCHOTIC WENCH. PLEASE SEE A DOCTOR!!! CHRIS BROWN WILL CONTINUE TO SING, PERFORM, BREAK STUFF AND MAKE YOU MISERABLE SO FIND A COPING MECHANISM BEFORE YOU KILL YOURSELF

    • Keisha M.

      Oh Cathy please listen to the voice of reason girl.

  • Gyale McNinch

    Why did they ruin a real good show by giving garbage like Chris Brown airtime. I wouldn’t have his CD if it was free.

    • CBisTheMan

      Good for you. I bought mine and it helped make him number 1 on the billboard. Get mad. Hahahahah!!!

      • alex

        I’m pretty sure you didn’t buy his album.

      • yea right

        If you bought his album then I’m Mother Theresa.

      • Natasha

        Glad you bought the album. Hey, I love his music. He’s very talented. i don’t agree w/what he did to her but GIVE IT A BREAK people! None of you have ever done anything wrong????? That you’re tired of hearing people remind you of?????? ugh!

    • Loch Ness

      He’s a vile pig.

      • Elanor

        You are an IDIOT!
