Chris Brown is Angry AMAs Cancelled Michael Jackson Tribute, Fans Show Support

Chris Brown expressed anger that the American Music Awards cancelled his planned tribute to Michael Jackson.

Jackson’s classic album, Thriller, came out 40 years ago in November.

Brown told his 124 million Instagram followers that his planned performance to honor the King of Pop was nixed by the American Music Awards a few days ahead of the show without explanation and his followers and fans are incensed.

Wrote Brown on IG, “WOULD’VE been the AMA performance but they cancelled me for reasons unknown. 🤷🏽‍♂️.”

According to reports, Brown would have begun the tribute with his own single, “Under the Influence.” But then he would have segued into an homage from Jackson. He was said to emulate many of the famed dance scenes that Jackson made household works of art, including segments from “Beat It,” “Wanna Be Starting’ Somethin’,” “Billie Jean” and the title track, “Thriller.” 

Brown was not present at the award show, but he received a shoutout from former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland, who accepted an award on his behalf and said, “Chris Brown is not here tonight, so I’m accepting this award on his behalf… I want to tell Chris, thank you so much for making great R&B music, and I want to tell him thank you for being an incredible performer. I’ll take this award and bring it to you, I love you! Congratulations, and congratulations to all the nominees in this category.”
