Grammy Awards: Chris Brown loses three Grammys (ouch, ouch, ouch)
Chris Brown may have looked like a winner appearing on "Saturday Night Live," but he took a pummeling at the Grammy Awards, losing three times.
His "Graffiti" lost contemporary R&B album to Usher's "Raymond vs. Raymond." His collaboration with Tank, "Take My Time," lost performance by an R&B group with vocals to Sade's "Soldier of Love."
Most amazing: He didn't lose rap/sung collaboration to Eminem and Rihanna's "Love the Way You Lie," which was also nominated. He lost to Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' "Empire State of Mind," which also beat "Love the Way You Lie" for rap song.
The awards were bestowed prior to the main TV broadcast on CBS. Brown announced ahead of time that he could not attend due to schedule conflicts.
