CBS allegedly had to add an applause track for Brown when his name was announced during the handing out of the Best Urban Contemporary Album trophy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cameras spied Breezy staying seated as Frank Ocean headed towards the stage to collect his first Grammy. What the cameras didn’t catch was the deafening awkward silence when Brown was announced as a nominee in the same category as Ocean.
After Brown stayed seated when Ocean bested him for Urban Contemporary Album, Adele was spotted screaming at Chris Brown for not giving Frank Ocean for a standing ovation. However, we wonder if he screamed at her about why she didn’t clap for him. I guess it doesn’t matter if Adele or anyone else in the Staples Center clapped for Breezy because CBS gave him the clap…ping track. (See what I did there?) Nobody at CBS has made any comment about the alleged clapping track addition.
