Exclusive: Did Usher Take Home Breezy’s American Music Award Last Night??

- By Bossip Staff

Chris Brown Usher American Music Awards

Chris Brown didn’t make it to the American Music Awards in Los Angeles last night. But did the folks behind the show take advantage of his absence to give the one award he was nominated for to Usher instead?

One attendee definitely thinks so, and set off the entire Breezy Nation last night with their backstage Twitter commentary, starting right before the award for Soul/Rhythm & Blues Music – Favorite Male Artist was presented.

Chris Brown AMA controversy

For the fourth year in a row, this year’s American Music Awards winners were determined by popular vote. Fans were given the opportunity to vote for their favorite artists in each and every category up until November 12. Even in the “T-Mobile Breakthrough Artist Category,” for which voting was open right up to the announcement of the winner, sources at last night’s show say Justin Beiber’s victory was announced earlier in the evening.

So, were the American Music Awards rigged? Was the teleprompter text a mega typo… down to the ‘we’re sorry Chris couldn’t be here to accept his award,’ even though Usher was clearly there to accept? Did presenters Lady Antebellum just say “Eff It” and pick a winner?

Or is it just too soon for Chris Brown to have his Mike Vick moment?

Sidenote: Maybe the AMAs just didn’t want any unclaimed Awards last night. According to this text from Lady Gaga’s manager, she should have won this year’s Artist Of The Year Award.

    This is horrible how they played Chris like that just cause he couldn’t make it. And Rihanna isn’t the reason he wasn’t there fools! He has a Thanksgiving show coming up and has been rehearsing & focusing on his upcoming shows. Duhhhh step your info game up!

    Yeah yeah yeah, I personally believe that AMA´s gave the award to Usher because Chris Brown wasnt there. I cant see why @neonlimelights should tweet that just for fun. F-U AMA!

  • samech

    Still like Chris…..

  • 1991 UK Gem of Africa

    I am confused… are they saying usher was given the award that Chris brown supposedly won or are they saying usher accepted the awarded on behalf of chris brown???

  • Mrs. Rance

    Yeah yeah yeah. The award show would give someone access to the telepromter that would be ghetto enough to tweet results ahead of time and then talk about it later. FOH.

  • MaryJane

    That is wrong as hell, usher should feel stank right about now

  • get real

    chris needs 2 sit all the way down, that new song he has with twister he sounds like a young girl going thru puberty with nasal problems, this bytch will never be on Usher level, deuces!

    • Truth Teller

      No you are the one that need to sit all the way down in a hole and shut the ‘F’ up!

  • Raymond Merritt

    I highly doubt that Chris Brown was suppose to win. Come on people. Usher had a wayyyyyy bigger year than Chris bROWN did. He sold more albums and had 2 number 1 songs. Chris Browns album flopped and his singles aint do shit. Usher deserved it.

    • Jenene

      The award is given based on a poll of music buyers. It is natural that the person who sold the most CDs will win.
      That person was not Chris Brown.

    • Truth Teller

      This was a fan vote fool!

  • Bacqui

    I love Usher but dat award belongs to Chris Brown!..

  • melissa

    they need to let breezy be great goddammit

  • Cherry

    NO I THINK USHER WON AND THESE PPL TWITTING JUST WANT TO CUZ SOME SH!T. GET OVER IT.

  • !!!!!

    NO I THINK USHER DESERVED ALL THOSE AWARD’S LAST NIGHT HE HAD A BETTER YR THEN CHRIS WHO IS ALSO GOOD BTW,BUT IF CHRIS KNEW HE WAS GONNA WIN HE SHOULD OF HAD HIS AZZ THERE THEN TOO LATE NOW AND CONGRATS TO USHER.

    • monica

      Ditto

  • tankreeper

    chris brown and lady gaga were not the only performers who were not present. there was another artist that won an award and he wasnt there….some white guy presented it and took it on that performers behalf

  • !!!!!

    IF CHRIS WAS THE WINNER THE PRESENTER’S WOULD ACCEPT THAT AWARD OR CHRIS BEHALF,NOT JUST GIVE IT TO USHER JUST BECAUSE,THAT TWEET PROLLY A CHRIS STAN AND WANTED CHRIS TO WIN WHICH IS FINE CAUSE I LIKE CHRIS TOO,BUT HE DID’NT WIN THIS TIME.

    nunca. usher is mejor. punto.

  • Nuts

    Maybe the TelePrompter had a error? It could happen.

  • Ms. Honesty

    CB was robbed of that award. Be real, even though Usher has been around longer and has a bigger fanbase, he wasn’t on his ish this year. He went way too pop for most people. Even with “the situation” Chris Brown went through his fans stood by him. And I know for a fact that CB’s were voting their azz off for him. I think it’s stupid that the AMA’s didn’t give him the award cause he wasn’t there. If that was the case Shakira shouldn’t have gotten her award cause she wasn’t there either.

  • Sha Sha

    So glad I TIVO’ed that wack show!

  • lying fools

    Chris brown fans are are so insane. he didn’t win, and he will never mainstream again het over it.

  • Mz.Drizzy

    Some person who is still stuck on the old A*s incident form last year probably did it on purpose smh

  • siyt

    wait!!! the one chritina milian and that ice skater presented was absent…who was it again that won that one??????

    • nikki88

      shakria

  • Blue Kid

    Chris Brown still has TeamBreezy, we will always be behind him 100%. Stay close to home Chris Brown R&B is where it’s at.

    We love you Chris Brown!

    • Aries79

      Lol…. Oh well, I guess he will have to wait until the bet awards next year so he can win again

  • WTF

    wrong!!!!!!!!! GAGA WON AND SO DID CHRIS

  • nikki88

    well Shakria wasnt there…they accepted her award on her behalf.

    if this is true…this usher needs to step up and hand the damn thing over. not that its his fault for them annoucing it wrong, but its clearly not his.

    TEAM BREEZY!
