One year ago, fans and critics agreed Chris Brown's career was over. When Brown arranged to perform at the 2010 BET Awards, no one predicted what would happen next. Right before the awards ceremony of 2009, the legendary Michael Jackson died. The pain of his death was still prominent one year after his death.

Before he was caught up, Chris Brown was considered by some as the next Michael Jackson. Nearly all male R&B singers who dance end up with his comparison. But, Brown's 2007 video, "Wall 2 Wall," helped these comparisons along. All of this went out of the window when Brown was labeled an abuser.

However, when Chris Brown did the tribute performance for the late Michael Jackson at the 2010 BET Awards, he won his fan base back. Following the performance, when he broke down and cried, he had an even bigger base. This was the catalyst which led to Chris Brown re-establishing himself in the game, coming back bigger than before.

What a difference a year makes with Chris Brown now leading everyone in BET Awards nominations. This year, Brown is up for 'Best Male R&B Artist,' 'Video of the Year,' 'Best Actor of the Year,' and three more nominations. Lil Wayne follows a close second with five nominations.
