The BET Awards were doing well, as far as performers go. But one man instantly got the audience on their feet on arrival: Chris Brown, who performed his hit single “Loyal” for the first time on a huge stage since being released from jail. Lil Wayne and Tyga joined him.
Wayne made his second appearance of the night for his opening verse. Wearing a red hat, matching plaid jacket, sunglasses and jeans, Brown earned the biggest cheers of the night up to that point as a surprise, unannounced performer.
