Chris Brown Leads With 6 Nods At 2011 BET Awards

06:01 AM Wednesday 5/18/11 |   |

Last year at the BET Awards, Chris Brown performed an emotional tribute to Michael Jackson. It marked the beginning of a comeback for the embattled pop star.

This year, Brown is the top contender at the award show with six nominations.

Brown is up for best male R&B artist, viewer's choice and video of the year for "Look at Me Now." He's nominated twice in the best collaboration category for his No. 1 R&B hits "Deuces," featuring Tyga and Kevin McCall, and "Look at Me Now," with Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne. Brown is also nominated for best actor for his role in the heist thriller "Takers."

Kanye West, Drake and Rihanna are up for four awards each.

Other nominees for video of the year include Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair," West's "Runaway," B.o.B's "Airplanes," Keri Hilson's "Pretty Girl Rock" and Marsha Ambrosius' "Far Away."

    I saw the "epic" performance he gave at the Grammys some years back and it will always remain as my impression of him: untalented hack. Cannot sing, cannot dance, but furiously trying to do both.

    E

    Postscript.  After watching 'Takers', I discovered that he cannot act either.

    Wow, congrats to him. I don't really care for the BET Awards, but I hope he gives us another epic performance.
