Chris Brown Tries for Redemption at the 'BET Awards 2010' (VIDEO)

Chris Brown Tries for Redemption at the 'BET Awards 2010'The 'BET Awards 2010' (Sun., 8PM ET on BET) took place tonight. The show featured performances by Alicia Keys, Enimem, and Drake. Among the nominees for awards were Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, as well as many others.

Kanye West also showed up to perform -- in one of his first high-profile events since notoriously interrupting Taylor Swift at the 'MTV Video Music Awards.'

But the highlight of the show was an performance by Chris Brown, who paid tribute to Michael Jackson. Brown famously pled guilty last year for assaulting his girlfriend Rihanna, and ever since then, his sales and reputation have suffered. But he appeared to make a stab at redemption with his emotional rendition of several of Michael Jackson's hit songs -- including 'Billie Jean' and 'Man in the Mirror.' At the close of his performance, Brown broke down into tears. Were they tears of remorse for what he had done to Rihanna?

Toward the end of the broadcast, Brown came back on stage to accept the AOL Fandemonium prize. This award honored the devotion of the singer's fans. While giving his acceptance speech, Brown said this: "I let you all down before, but I won't do it again, I promise."

What do you think? Did Chris Brown manage to redeem himself? Does he deserve our forgiveness?

from the screams of the audience BEFORE he started crying, i would say he got redemption a long time ago.

I wish people would get over what happened with Chris and Rhianna even though I don't condone ever hitting a woman no matter what she has done I think that they have both moved on and now it's time for everyone else to move on too.
