Grammys 2012: Photos From The Show and Backstage
Following a three-year absence from the Grammys, Chris Brown gave an enthusiastic performance of new single "Turn Up The Music" and "Beautiful People," exhibiting his Jackson-esque dance moves before a colorful light show.

Chris Brown returns to the Grammys, three years after his violent altercation with then-girlfriend Rihanna derailed another scheduled performance at the awards gala.

Breezy, in a baby blue letterman jacket, opened the show with his first single off "Fortune," titled "Turn Up the Music." The singer showed off his highly-praised dance moves across a series of color changing cubes.

Chris Brown kept the audience hyped when transitioning into another dance track, "Beautiful People," off his Billboard 100 No. 1 album, "F.A.M.E."

"Fortune" does not yet have a release date, but is expected to hit stores in the first quarter of 2012. Last week, Brown revealed that Nas would be featured on his fifth studio full-length.
