What Happens if 'Dancing' Audience Boos Chris Brown? ABC Has a Plan

Chris Brown
With Chris Brown scheduled to perform on tonight's 'Dancing With the Stars' results show, 'DWTS' insiders are very worried that the hotheaded performer may get booed on live television.

"It's a family-friendly show that wants to keep its tone upbeat and happy," a show insider tells PopEater's Rob Shuter. "The last thing they want to happen is for Chris to not get a very warm welcome and ruin the whole atmosphere for the entire evening."

Even the show's super friendly host Tom Bergeron warned that there might be trouble if he gets the chance to interview Brown.

"I did say to the producers that it might be to their advantage to not have me interview him, because my natural tendency would be to say something," Tom told Ryan Seacrest this morning. But Tom has nothing to worry about as Chris will only be performing this evening and not talking.

Chris recently freaked out backstage at 'Good Morning America' after being asked a question about assaulting his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, back in 2009.

"We are prepared to cut right to commercial after Chris performs," an insider tells me. "If anyone boos you wont get to hear it on TV. The only thing that we are worried about is if the audience doesn't react well before the performance. The sound guy will do his best to pump up the music and drown out the sound from the crowd."

Well I won't watch the season due to the lame cast. But I do want to know. Did they boo him?

And the reason they scheduled him in the first place? This situation has been around a long time and the "powers that be" should certainly have taken the problem into consideration. There are so many good entertainers out there that don't have this cloud over them. They will probably prep the audience in advance and figure a way to make Chris Brown come out just fine. SHAME ON THEM!!!!!!!!!!!

ABC shouldn't be resorting to Communist Chinese-style censorship when they know full well what type of controversial figure Brown is.

Chris Brown, needs to accept what he did ...and accept that he will be scared for life with this. We all know what happened. Should we all forgive and forget. No. Chris Brown is talented. I love his music. But, after what he did, I want to see him do something other than doing just singing. I want to see him get involved in programs that deal with women getting beaten. Something that will give us hope that he really infact cares. So, when the questions do come up in an interview about him beating Rihanna to a bloody pulp. He accepts it like a man and what steps he is doing do live with it. Just saying your going to forget the past and move on, isn't solving the problem.

Here already accepted what he did and was given probation. Why can't YOU move on? He did.

No. He was charged. That doesn't reflect acceptance or remorse. It's not like people are saying he should be banned from singing. Just that he has to live with the fact that he beats women. That's a fact and he can't escape that reality by throwing chairs through windows.
