A healthy debate is still being waged over whether Chris Brown's onstage meltdown during his BET Awards Michael Jackson tribute was real or exaggerated, but at least one celebrity is speaking out in support of the singer: Jermaine Jackson.

Jackson, who introduced Brown to the stage for the tribute to his late brother, told an Extra news crew backstage that the performance was "a spectacular moment."
"It was very emotional for me because it was an acceptance from his fans from what has happened to him and also paying tribute to my brother," Jackson said. "Chris Brown is a human being and we all make mistakes. We can't condemn him for what has happened. We hope he learned from it."
"He deserves to perform because it's healing for him," Jackson continued. "How can he learn from his mistakes if you don't give him a chance? He needs that. I love Rihanna, and I'm not supporting what he did but I support him 100%."
