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

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."
