Kelly Rowland wasn't having the boos when she announced Chris Brown's win at the AMA's telling the haters in the audience to settle down.
As soon as she mentioned his name, you could hear a smattering of boos in the crowd. Kelly shut that down hard.
Chris said on social Saturday the AMA's canceled his Michael Jackson tribute but never explained why.
Brown has become a lightning rod in the music industry and beyond, all emanating from beating Rihanna back in 2009.
The conventional wisdom is that Chris would have soared to much greater heights but for the brutal assault.
