After much speculation and countless rumors, a spokesperson for Dick Clark Productions (who produced the American Music Awards) has revealed the reason why Chris Brown’s tribute to Michael Jackson’s Thriller album was cancelled, and the jury is still out. Their statement read, “Live shows change all the time, it’s the nature of this business; unfortunately, this element of the AMAs didn’t come together as we couldn’t align on the performance, to no fault of Chris Brown.”
MJ’s album Thriller, is the best selling non -compilation album and second best selling album overall in the United States and was certified 34X platinum by the RIAA. With this year being the 40th anniversary of its release, it’s challenging for some to believe they would omit the tribute, while keeping performances by GloRilla and Lil Baby (no shade to them). Most people think it was just another way to embarrass Chris Brown again, for mistakes he made in the past. Others think its a way to remind people of the controversy surrounding previous, unproven allegations against MJ. Read the full story on our Kiss 107.1 Facebook page and leave your comments there!
