With his "X" album dropping on July 19th, R&B singer Chris Brown, who predicted a drama free night at the 2013 BET Awards show since Drake, who had 12 BET nominations, decided not to attend, kicked off the awards show with his hit single "Fine China" and a few other new songs from his upcoming album.
And before hitting the stage:
