Kelly Rowland quieted unrest from the audience after Chris Brown’s American Music Award win was booed on Sunday.

The former Destiny’s Child member announced that Brown was the winner of the Favorite Male R&B Artist category, noting that the 33-year-old was not there to receive the trophy — but she would accept it on his behalf.

“Excuse me,” Rowland, 41, said amid boos from the crowd. “Chill out.”

The “Dilemma” singer called Brown an “incredible performer” and went on to speak directly to him.

“Chris, thank you so much for making great R&B music,” the actress concluded. “ll take this award [and] bring it to you. I love you. Congratulations, and congratulations to all the nominees in this category.”

Social media users had mixed feelings about Rowland’s defense of Brown, who has repeatedly been accused of violence against women.

“Why was Kelly Rowland going so hard for Chris brown on that stage?” one viewer asked via Twitter, with another writing, “What the f–k is Chris brown doing still winning awards and why is Kelly Rowland up there thanking his ass wtf truly.”
