"It's almost Christmas, so we gotta give them some presents," the 21-year-old told his dancers before surprising the audience with an appearance from rapper Bow Wow on the track 'Ain't Thinkin' 'Bout You,' off his 'Fan of a Fan' mixtape. Decked out in a grey suit, the Virginia native ran through his musical arsenal, including 'Gimmie That,' 'Yo (Excuse Me Miss),' 'Take You Down,' and the Grammy nominated single 'Deuces,' featuring Tyga, who also popped up for his feature.
After a somewhat tumultuous year, Brown is slowly turning the focus away from his attack on ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, and back onto his music. The singer changed the negative tide leftover after the assault, with an emotional tribute performance to Michael Jackson at this year's BET Awards. Both Brown and Rihanna recently took to their Twitter pages pleading for a final end to the drama surrounding the abuse incident. Brown is currently prepping the release of his fourth album 'F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies).'
Other Cali Christmas performers included Rick Ross, Ice Cube, Far East Movement, and the New Boyz. Check out Brown's live performance of 'Deuces' below.
