Chris Brown and Ciara rehearsing what would’ve been their performance for the Thriller 40th anniversary at #AMAs.
IN EXPECTED AWARDS show fashion, the 2022 American Music Awards weren’t without their fair share of controversy. Singer Chris Brown took home an early award for Favorite Male R&B Artist on Sunday night.
But the “Under the Influence” singer wasn’t at the award show to accept his win — following an apparent issue between himself and the AMAs.
According to an Instagram post from Brown earlier this week, the R&B singer claimed he had been scheduled to perform a Michael Jackson tribute and had been actively practicing when it was canceled.
“U SERIOUS?” he wrote. He also commented on the Instagram post: “WOULDVE been the ama performance but they cancelled me for reasons unknown.”
Representatives for the AMAs and Chris Brown did not immediately return Rolling Stone‘s requests for comment.
“Now, Chris Brown is not here tonight so I’m accepting the award on his behalf,” she said, before holding up a finger to the still-booing audience. “Excuse me. Chill out.”
Rowland went on, thanking Brown for his contributions to the genre and saying she loved him.
“But I wanna tell Chris Brown thank you so much for making great R&B music,” she added. “And I wanna tell him thank you for being an incredible performer.”
Many of the music industry’s biggest stars came out Sunday night to the 2022 American Music Awards, and they brought their fashion A-game.
The AMAs air live at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, hosted by Wayne Brady. Bad Bunny leads the nominees with eight nominations, followed by Beyoncé, Drake and Taylor Swift with six each. The Weeknd, Adele and Harry Styles each have five nods.
Lionel Richie, who has won 17 AMA trophies throughout his prestigious career, will receive the Icon Award. Steveie Wonder, Charlie Puth and Ari Lennox will perform a medley of songs from Richie’s extensive catalog. Pink will also pay tribute to Olivia Newton-John, who died in August from breast cancer. Other performers during the night include Anitta, Bebe Rexha, David Guetta, Dove Cameron, GloRilla, Lil Baby, Carrie Underwood, Imagine Dragons, J.I.D, Yola and DJ D-Nice.
