Chris Brown can't really complain that he didn't receive quite the reaction that Adele did as he too made a comeback at the Grammy Awards last night, but then there's a slight difference from clawing your way back from potentially career-defining surgery and potentially career-defining assault charges. Nevertheless Breezy appears to be back and restored, at least commercially, after he performed live at the ceremony and managed to scoop an award into the bargain, taking his first ever Grammy for Best R&B Album 'F.A.M.E.'
There's been discontent in many quarters over Brown's apparent easy ride back to the top. It was before the Grammys in 2009 of course that he hit then-girlfriend Rihanna following an argument between the pair on the way to the ceremony. It's something that the 22 year-old is still midway through a five year probation period for, with the star also receiving six months of community service for his misdemeanour.
The New York Daily News reports that at the awards last night, Brown performed live, picking the songs 'Turn Up The Music' from his forthcoming album and 'Beautiful People' from the aforementioned 'F.A.M.E (Forgiving All My Enemies). After attending the ceremony Brown took to Twitter to write "People who make mistakes and learn from them are Role Models too. Im just happy to inspire growth and positivity, TeambreezYdidit".
