Chris Brown Breaks Down at BET Awards

Last night on the BET awards Chris Brown was finally able to pay tribute to his idol Michael Jackson. He showed off his best Michael Jackson dance moves to a medley of the King of Pop’s greatest hits. To wrap it all up Brown began to sing “Man in the Mirror”. Only after a few seconds he broke down crying and couldn’t bring himself to finish the song. Brown, who’s 21 later returned to the stage later to apologize to fans. He said, "I let you all down before, but I won't do it again. I promise you."

This was Brown’s first major TV performance since he pleaded guilty to assaulting his former girlfriend Rihanna back in February 2009.

So this got us wondering… do you think Brown’s tears were truly pure emotion or fake? Weigh in and let us know what you think. We’ll read your posts in the 10am hour.
