Chris Brown hit the red carpet at the 2012 American Music Awards at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday evening, and this leather ensemble is actually a pretty tame outfit -- for him, anyway!

The 23-year-old R&B superstar is nominated for Favorite Soul/R&B Male Artist and Favorite Soul/R&B Album for Fortune, and he's going to perform “Everyday Birthday” with Swizz Beatz and Ludacris during the broadcast. Can't wait to see what he has in store!
