Chris Brown had quite an exciting night.

The singer brought everyone to their feet when he made his first post-jail performance at the 2014 BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

The entertainer didn't miss a single step during his live rendition of "Loyal" and showed off his signature dance moves.

At the end of the song, Brown gave Travis Barker a lengthy solo on drums while he danced center stage.

He later took the stage during August Alsina's "I Love It" with Trey Songz.

And as if that wasn't enough, Breezy also released a new single shortly after taking the stage.

The 25-year-old took to Twitter to announce his next single, "New Flame," featuring Rick Ross and Usher.

It's certainly been a productive last few weeks for the pop star, who was released from jail in the beginning of June.

The Grammy winner spent two and a half months behind bars for violating his probation stemming from his 2009 assault conviction for hitting Rihanna.

He copped to the violation and was sentenced May 9 to another 131 days, but he ultimately qualified for early release.

Brown is still facing a misdemeanor battery charge in Washington, D.C., for allegedly punching a man, his arrest back East having constituted the probation violation in question.
