Usher and Chris Brown pumped up the crowd at 2012 Billboard Music Awards with their uplifting performances. The former was introduced by Far East Movement and sang his club-ready single "Scream", while the latter was introduced by Brandy and performed his dance track "Turn Up the Music".
This year, Usher got three nods through David Guetta's "Without You" and Romeo Santos' "Promise" where he serves as a featured guest. The former song was nominated for Top Dance Song and Top Streaming Song (Audio), while the latter was up for Top Latin Song, but none of them won.
Breezy, meanwhile, was nominated for Top R&B Song, Top R&B Album, Top R&B Artist and Top Male Artist, and he managed to take home the Top R&B Artist title. He beat Beyonce Knowles, Cee-Lo Green, Miguel and Rihanna.
