Chris Brown is an incredible live performer but his show at the White Hot Holidays special wasn’t so hot. The singer has apologized for his less-than-stellar vocals during his holiday medley, featuring “This Christmas” and “Back To Sleep,” by likening himself to Michael Jordan. “MJ didn't score 50 every night. I'm just glad I was given the opportunity,” he tweeted.
Taraji P. Henson, who hosted the special, came to Chris’ defense as well. “Y'all know what @chrisbrown is capable of vocally. HE SHOWED UP W/LOVE IN HIS HEART PERIOD."
Fans weren’t so understanding and didn’t see the “love in his heart” as an excuse. “Uhhhh, is Chris Brown high out his mind or is this his normal?” asked one fan on Twitter. Others chimed in with thoughts like: “Father God, I ask you give Brother Chris Brown back his voice just for this song. Amen” and “Chris Brown is doing the absolute most while sounding like crap.”
Hear for yourself.
