ABC has changed its mind over Chris Brown‘s Good Morning America appearance. Rather than singing from his new album, the R&B singer will break his silence on the Grammy night that left Rihanna battered and bruised, in an interview on 20/20.

The network was criticized last week for revealing that Chris would perform on GMA after it ditched Adam Lambert for delivering a raunchy American Music Awards appearance.

In his interviews on Larry King Live and The Wendy Williams Show Chris, 20, has avoided discussing the details of the February night.

Now, he will tell all to GMA host Robin Roberts in an interview airing Dec. 11.

His interview is being billed as a reply to Rihanna, who opened up to Diane Sawyer on the same show, drawing nearly nine million viewers.

ABC declined to tell the New York Post why it canceled Chris’ original interview and concert on the morning show and moved it to prime time.
