This wasn’t a musical performance as much as it was an excuse for Chris Brown to dance. The man has moves, but they’re not enough to sustain him. Brown didn’t even try to disguise the fact that he was lip-synching. If he put as much effort into his music — or better yet, his post-Rihanna public image — as he does into his dance routines, he could go far. Until that happens, he’ll remain a minor footnote in contemporary pop music. The playground that looked like a set from an as yet unproduced Q*bert musical was pretty impressive, though.
