He loves to be on stage, and Chris Brown was right in his element during his gig on the 2012 Billboard Music Awards tonight (May 20).

The “Kiss Kiss” hitmaker headed out to the MGM Grand Garden Arena venue in Las Vegas to give his fans some love ahead of the release of his forthcoming album Fortune.

Chris - who also won Top R&B Artist honors - sang “Turn Up the Music,” complete with fabulous dance moves, massive energy, and plenty of swagger.

The only slight letdown about the performance is that Chris seemed to be relying on a lip-synching track rather than hitting those notes live.
