Hollywood, CA - Less than 24 hours after returning from a six-show tour in Japan, guitarist Orianthi joined Chris Brown, nominated in the Top R&B Artist and Top R&B Album categories, for his performance of "Fine China".

Against an Asian motif backdrop, Brown showcased his Michael Jackson-inspired moves and displayed some serious martial-arts dance skills while Orianthi peppered the song with some guitar before breaking into a soulful solo at the close of the performance.

While she and Chris had never worked with one another or even met prior to playing together on Sunday, she reveled in being a part of a performance that paid homage to the late, great Michael Jackson.

Whether she's touring to support her latest album Heaven In This Hell; playing alongside her idols Carlos Santana and Steve Vai; trading guitar licks with Prince; or touring as the lead guitarist for shock-rocker Alice Cooper's band; Orianthi continues to leave an indelible mark on the music industry, showcasing both her versatility and unique style across a number of music genres.
