Chris Brown Joins American Music Awards Performance Lineup

The performer roster for the upcoming 2011 American Music Awards continues to grow. The show, which airs on November 20 on ABC at 8 p.m. ET/PT, will feature performances from party starters LMFAO, Chris Brown and Marc Anthony. The three stars will join a previously announced group of performers that includes Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige, Christina Aguilera, Pitbull and Maroon 5. The host-free event will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live and be preceded by a one-hour red carpet ABC special at 7 p.m. The action will start even earlier with an online pre-show beginning at 5 p.m. EST hosted by former ‘NSYNC member Lance Bass, with help from Michael Buckley, Estelle, Sarah Hyland, Audrina Patridge, Josh Sussman and Xzibit. Aguilera and Maroon 5 will hook up to play their current smash hit “Moves Like Jagger.”
Last month, in a nomination special hosted by Pitbull and Nicki Minaj, it was revealed that Perry would head into the show as one of the night’s most-nominated acts (along with fellow females Adele, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift), up for Artist of the Year, Pop or Rock Music: Favorite Female Artist and Adult Contemporary Music: Favorite Artist. It’s somewhat fitting, given not only the rather huge year she’s had, but that she also delivered a full-throttle version of her hit “Firework” at last year’s AMAs.
For the fifth year, American Music Award winners will be determined by online voting. Fans can support their favorites in all categories by heading over to AMAVote.com.

Chris Brown ft T-Pain – Niggas In Paris (Freestyle) Lyrics

[T-Pain]
It’s your turn Chris
Lets go baby
I SAID LETS GOOOO….

[Chris Brown]
Look, I just came to get rid of every nigga
To murder every rapper, watch a nigga come up outta me
I’m stuntin’ hard on these muthaf-ckas
Flying on the VMA’s. Evel Knievel, the nigga proud of me
I’m drinking this shit til 5 in the morning
Your girls number 1 pick, call me Mr Lottery
I let a hater nigga die, POW, like it’s suicide
I ain’t giving no more f-ckin’ apologies
Stunt so hard, that shit crazy
Aint shit free, f-ck you pay me
Heron flow from the 80′s, my chain on me like we made it
My Kinfolk got 10 hoes, 5 whites, 2 blacks like 3 Asians
My Benzo got damn hoe, nigga take this shit I’m too faded
Go ‘head and bring yo crown over
Ass kisser, brown noser, f-ck yo luck, I smoke clovers
I’m partying with boat owners
Marilyn Monroe hoes all on us
Rookie tryna get ya signing bonus
Nigga look at my chain man, I paint ya face, you a clown homie
Not tryna throw subliminal, my Porsche got 4?
Even if its just 10 of ya’ll I put you in the old school and you pin up dolls, yes
That shit crazy, don’t you play me
You tryna get on this bus, bitch sign this waiver
Hol’ up, hol’ up, gimme that Chardonnay and that Marvin Gaye shit
But hol’ up, my conversation too complicated, this bitch too basic
You aint no groupie girl and you know that I won’t say shit
You got skeletons in your closet
I got aliens in my basement
