Chris Brown’s Michael Jackson Tribute at American Music Awards Canceled
Chris Brown says the AMAs unexpectedly canceled his Michael Jackson tribute performance — “CB” will no longer be performing at the 2022 American Music Awards.
The Grammy award-winning R&B/Pop star took to Instagram on Friday night (Nov. 18.), Chris shared footage from rehearsals for his thrilling tribute to Michael Jackson, commemorating the 40th anniversary of Thriller. He opened his seven-minute set with his hit “Under the Influence” before delivering a dance-heavy medley of MJ classics like “Beat It,” “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’,” “Billie Jean,” and “Thriller.”
In his caption, he wrote, “U SERIOUS?” before revealing that the performance was for the AMAs. “WOULDVE been the ama performance but they cancelled me for reasons unknown.”
His fans and celebrity peers were outraged by the news. “ITS SAD HOW THEY DO YOU WHEN U R ALIVE BUT IF YOU PASS THEY GLORIFY U,” Boosie Badazz wrote.
“You’ve suffered long enough you deserve your MF flowers,” a fan commented while another added, “GIVE THIS MAN HIS PROPS AND STOP JUDGING HIM FOR HIS PAST.”
Taylor Terry, one of the dancers who was at rehearsals, also spoke out. “I’m sick to my stomach!!! I’m so so so sorry this happened Chris! You were so exited!” she wrote. “The whole team on and off the floor was excited!!! Never left a rehearsal without having chills! To go to a rehearsal and be inspired everyday in more ways than one is crazy!!!!! So grateful to have been apart of this man!!! This video does us no justice!”
