Controversial singer Chris Brown is set to perform during the Dancing With the Stars Season 14, Week 8: Results Show. This isn't Chris's first performance on DWTS: Back in Season 12 he helped the show snag top ratings despite fan protest. Apparently DWTS is hoping the magic works again.

For those not up on your recent pop-culture history, Chris earned the ire of many fans in 2009 when he assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna before the Grammys. The controversy flared up again when Chris was allowed to perform at the Grammys this year.

What do you think of Dancing With the Stars' decision to allow Chris to perform again? Do you think he should be barred because of his past actions, or are you willing to forgive him — especially if he brings in the ratings for the show?
