Over 18,000 people came out to see Chris Brown perform on the "Today" show in New York's Rockefeller Plaza on Friday. …

I never thought Chris Brown would be able to resurrect his career after assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009. Turns out I was very wrong. Brown's fans (known as teambreezy) stood by him throughout the ordeal -- for which he was sentenced to five years probation and six months community service -- and came out in full force for his "Today" show performance Friday, which broke Lady Gaga's previous record for the biggest "Today" concert ever with over 18,000 fans in attendance!

Diehard members of teambreezy started camping out along NYC's 5th Avenue Wednesday in order to catch the show. The predominately female crowd screamed as the 22-year-old R&B singer performed several of his hits, including "Can Transform Ya," "Yeah 3X," "She Ain't You," and "Forever," all while showing off his smooth dance moves.

After the show, Chris tweeted: "I love teambreezy so much. Wish the concert was longer today! Thx you Today Show for your everything Love ya! I love my fans!!!! It is really truly an honor and a blessing to create music and evoke emotion for positivity. Can't live without my fans."

While I do believe in second chances, as a woman, I have a hard time forgiving when it comes to domestic violence. Would you wait in line for days to see Chris Brown?
