Chris Brown Performs for First Time Since Attack

Chris Brown returned to the stage last night for the first time since the Rihanna attack back in February.

He headlined the Power 105.1's Powerhouse '09 concert in New Jersey last night, which also featured The-Dream, Fabolous, Day26, Trey Songz, Keri Hilson and Mario.

"Chris is a performer. In spite of all that's been going on in his personal life, he's gonna get out there and perform," Songz said before Brown hit the stage. "I'm confident in that. As a friend, as a brother, I wanna see him go out there and shut it down. I believe everybody deserves a second chance. In God's eyes, none of us are perfect, and he forgives us every day. He deserves a second chance, and I commend Power 105 for giving it to him."

According to MTV, the crowd went wild when Chris took the stage, wearing a Michael Jackson-inspired red thriller jacket. He began his performance with his new song "I Can Transform Ya."

He also told the crowd, "Despite my past and stuff like that, I appreciate all of y'all.”
