He who laughts last…..everybody laughing at this ninja whistling to Forrest Gump. Who will pay money to see him in concert? CB on the other hand does better in concerts than he sells records. (Artist keep all their concert money, records sales are good for producers)

That was a hoooorrible performance, this ninja started whistling like Forrest Gump…this isn’t talent. Frank got to where he is by his “sexual preference” not talent. CB outsold him in concerts and records, then “The Grammy’s” ruins their good name and gives this ninja a award for this crap.

Yea, everybody thought it was fine when Jay Z sat the whole time during Chris Brown’s performance at the VMA’s, but cause he didn’t stand up for Frank, he did clap though. Frank put on a performance, start a fight before the Grammy’s, yea sources said he wouldn’t not let Chris leave the studio without starting something. Publicity, he played all, and won, and it wasn’t because he deserved it!

How does Frank Ocean win without selling more records than Chris Brown? This is pure politics, the Grammy’s should allow winners to be determined by record/concert sales, that would be the only TRUE way to determine who the real winner, if nobody wants to spend money on your record, it doesn’t matter if you win a Grammy, you music still sucks. Frank Ocean won a Grammy because his P.R rep is better than Chris Brown after the fight.

He applauded Frank so Chris not standing up really dont mean fck all, as who says you have to stand.
And anyways Chris is a better entertainer then Frank any day,and as much as i love Chris i didn’t even think Chris Fortune album was all that, i think the Fame album was way better,anyhow thats jus my opinion

Actually Chris brown has seen a decline in fans over the years and while he is a better performer he lacks musical creativity which is necessary if he wishes to have a long career. Look at bow wow Omarion Mario point proven

Unless you judge CB with a lower bar than others, CB actually did very well selling records but marketability was poor timing. CB came out with his record the same week Amazon was selling Usher, Katy Perry, etc. for only $2.99…that was bad management by CB folks. You can’t compete with other artist that’s giving their music away, he should have waited until Amazon finished their sale and released his music. CB outsold, Usher and others for the first week, Rihanna has 21 member on twitter and only sold 130,000 units of her record (at a discounted price) So Rihanna actully did worse than CB. (Rihanna doesn’t write all of her music either, so she gets less than most artist)

Hi -

Good that Chris Brown remained seated when Ocean won. He did clap, which was certainly sufficient. Chris wasn’t inclined to stand up. He exercised his choice just as the folks standing exercised theirs. Free country – Go USA!

Cheers for Chris in seated mode looking sharp in that dynamite white ensemble. Too many folks follow the crowd. Chris didn’t violate anything because he didn’t rise.

Ocean won. He stood on stage. Good enough…

I thought that Chris had that, but thought wrong. Congrats on Frank Ocean for winning the awards. When they said “the winner is, Frank Ocean!” I had love the reaction and the face expression he had on his face lol. That was priceless. Drake and Frank Ocean won an award, and not Chris….. WOW. That’s karma for ya!

A lot of people backing Chris Brown up, the man has no class. I’m so glad Frank Ocean won, so suck it to all you Chris Brown fans that say Frank should just be grateful that he clapped.

That award was Miguels is it just me I don’t find Frank Ocean attractive it doesn’t matter if he is gay or not there are a lot of attractive gay men. Anyway he is lucky CB applauded him why the standing ovation? S*** if standing ovations are so easily attainable they should have stand when RIH and BEY walked in the building both looked stellar.

Hush!!!!! Chris clapped, that was good enough, I don’t even think Miguel clapped because Frank shouldn’t have won that. The only person Chris stood up for was Rihanna’s performance and he should have. Frank Ocean’s performance was the worst ever, the audience was laughing including LLcoolJ the host. Run like Forrest Gump? really? OMG he was off key and then he had a nerve to whistle at the end lol.

Too many people stand just because its what everyone else does and theyre scared of looking like dissing. Be bloody honest. He doesnt deserve a standing ovation, its all bullshit call just because he came out. By the way I cant stand chris brown, but hes probably the only genuine one there.

You’re wrong. There are many Chris Brown fans who have good grammar…and many who are intelligent, as well.

Katie they are haters don’t u recognize…he’s handsome, talented, young, gifted, black, has a super star in love w/him and might I mention RICH???…Katie u better recognize a hater when it raises it’s evil head….don’t take any wooden nickles. He was a teen and had anger issues. Now a man he’ll have to learn to control his emotions but non the less, I’m use to folks downing our people of color…they hate the fact that we are who we are. If they could throw a banana on our porch and sue us, they would. Don’t FORGET MJ A PERFECT EXAMPLE….READ THE HAND WRITING ON THE WALL, IJS

What are the Grammy's coming to?

Posted at 10:08 PM on February 10, 2013  

Don’t know why…there are so many other artists that can actually sing. Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Miguel, Hell Justin Timberlake are ALL better singers than this cat. Frank Ocean’s voice is horrible. i guess it’s his music huh?

A lot of people said shit when Jay-Z snubbed Chris at the VMAs. They PRAISED him. Because he wasn’t clapping for a woman-beating disgrace. That’s understandable. Chris snubbed Frank but no one is praising him for it because it’s just a childish beef. He’s disgusting.
