by RadarOnline.com Staff
At Sunday's 2011 BET Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, there was no doubt the night’s big winner, Chris Brown, had turned around his career in grand fashion.
The 21-year-old Forever singer performed twice and collected four awards: best male R&B artist, the Fandemonium award, the best collaboration award, and the Viewers' Choice award.
"I appreciate all the support," Brown, whose career was in doubt after he infamously beat his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, told the audience. “I know it's been a long road, so I appreciate every blessing in front of me."
