Chris Brown should have been invited to dance on the BET show in honor of Michael Jackson. Remember: We all have sin and come short of God's glory. Yet, we become Gods when someone errors. My mom use to say "Every dog will have his day." Lets hope nothing comes out about you guys.

R u serious? Ya'll must be young because beyonces album sucks and Jazmin deserves to win. The bet awards gets worse & worse every year. It's like they sold out & died right along with REAL hip hop

its wrong the chris brown did not get nominated for anything he may have made a wrong choose, but he worked hard to get where is today and in my book chris brown will always have fans and we are his awards. tell that to B.E.T.
