Chris Brown performed his latest hit, Fine China, at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The song was released back in April and has received rave reviews by many, which made it no surprise as to why Brown was nominated at the Billboard Music Awards. He received a nod in the categories Best R&B Artist and Top R&B Album. In both categories he competed against his rumored off-again girlfriend Rihanna.
This is the second year that Brown performed at the Billboard Music Awards. In 2012, he sang a version of Turn Up the Music.
The 2013 Billboard Music Awards aired live on ABC and was hosted by 30 Rock alum Tracy Morgan. More than 15 musical acts took to the stage Sunday with performances, including Prince, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Bruno Mars, Miguel, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift.
Swift, fun. and Maroon 5 lead the finalists at this year's event with 11 nominations each. Rihanna competed in 10 categories and Call Me Maybe singer Carly Rae Jepsen followed with nine nominations.
Prince was honored with the Billboard Icon Award and Madonna received the Top Touring Artist award for achieving the highest grossing tour.
