Chris Brown, 'Yeah 3X' and 'Beautiful People'

Chris Brown has spent much of the past two years shunned by both the public and the rest of the music industry after he pleaded guilty to the felony assault of his then girlfriend Rihanna. So what's he been doing with himself while on probation? Improving his dance moves, apparently. Brown continues a slow but steady comeback with this VMA performance — a combination of hip-hop, boy-band and pop-and-lock dance moves that earn him a standing ovation from Kanye West. And as if that wasn't enough, he lip-synchs to Wu-Tang Clan and Nirvana and then flies through the air. Is this enough to forgive him? Probably not.
