Following his unforgettable 2007 VMA performance, Chris Brown took his stage show to another level tonight. With peers like Kanye West, KiD CuDi, and others out of their seats showing support, watch Breezy’s high-wire airshow. It includes a medley of “Yeah 3X,” with a dance routine to Wu-Tang Clan’s “Protect Ya Neck,” Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” and ending with “Beautiful People.”
