Chris Brown Win Booed At 2022 AMAs

As is customary with the lion’s share of recent music-related ceremonies, the 2022 American Music Awards weren’t without their fair share of controversy when singer Chris Brown took home an early award for Favorite Male R&B Artist.

Following an apparent issue between the superstar singer and the AMAs, the “Under the Influence” singer did not show up during the Sunday night (11.20) awards telecast.

Taking to his Instagram account earlier this week, Brown claimed he’d been scheduled to perform a Michael Jackson tribute and was actively practicing when it was canceled, writing “U SERIOUS?” “WOULDVE been the ama performance but they cancelled me for reasons unknown.”

Former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland presented the R&B award, and when Brown’s name was announced to audible boos throughout the crowd, the chanteuse said “Now, Chris Brown is not here tonight so I’m accepting the award on his behalf,” before holding up a finger to the still-booing audience. “Excuse me. Chill out.”

Rowland went on to thank the make singer for his contributions to the genre, saying she loved him, and adding “But I wanna tell Chris Brown thank you so much for making great R&B music.” “And I wanna tell him thank you for being an incredible performer.”
