Chris Brown Rants As AMAs Apparently Cancel His Michael Jackson Tribute Performance

Music lovers have been waiting for this Sunday’s (November 20) American Music Awards for weeks. Watching attendees walk the red carpet in their glamorous outfits is certainly part of the fun. However, the real entertainment comes from the live performances that take place on stage.

Among those showing their stuff at the 2022 Ceremony are P!nk, Dove Cameron, Lil Baby, Anitta and Bebe Rexha. R&B star Chris Brown was also on the list. Unfortunately, a recent post on his Instagram page reveals that his Michael Jackson tribute has been inexplicably removed from the tracklist.

On Saturday (November 19), the father-of-three shared a clip of him rehearsing with his fellow actors. Taking obvious inspiration from her hero MJ, Breezy enjoys hits like “Beat It,” “Billie Jean,” “Wanna Be Starting Something” and “Thriller.”

In the caption of the photo, he wrote: “Are you serious?” which was later given more context thanks to an angry comment. “It WOULD have been the AMA performance, but I got canceled for unknown reasons,” added the “With You” hitmaker.

Immediately after Brown shared the news, loyal fans and celebrity friends did their part to defend him. Tank posted on his own IG page asking the producers for more answers. At the same time, hundreds of people have left comments.

“[Let] Chris act please [crying emoji]JID responded to a photo previously shared by AMAs of him rehearsing. Others wrote, “We’re not even looking at if Chris can’t perform” and “You shouldn’t have asked CB to perform if you were just going to cancel like that.”

With just over 24 hours to go before things kick off, the AMAs have yet to respond to Chris Brown’s claims.

Do you think Breezy’s performance at Sunday night’s ceremony should continue? Hit the comments and come back later for more pop culture news updates.
