Chris Brown, donning Chinese garb, kicked off the second performance of the night with his latest single, “Fine China.” Before a red backdrop of Chinese themed visuals, from the Great Wall of China to Chinese script, he pulled out dance fighting moves.

He kept all eyes on him despite the slight vocal stumble in the beginning of his set, which he admitted to on Twitter soon after.
“Lil hoarse for the performance but it happens. Good shit otherwise,” he tweeted.
The singer closed his set with an ode to Michael Jackson, posing as the late legend behind the backdrop.
“Fine China” is the first single off his upcoming album “X,” which he says is his most personal album to date. “I’ve been going through my own trials and tribulations, overcoming a lot of stuff and persevering through things,” he told Billboard. “And my release is the studio, that and painting. You can see it in my artwork. Hopefully when people hear ‘X,’ they will be blown away.”
