After much talk about Chris Brown's nomination at the Kids' Choice Awards, the singer's name has been withdrawn from the competition. He recently updated his MySpace asking for votes, and just yesterday Nick said it was planning to let the kids decide. There are conflicting reports about whether it was Chris or the network that pulled his name, but today his rep released a statement saying:

"Chris very much appreciates the support of his fans and the honor they have paid him in the way of nominations for Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song. Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding the incident last month has shifted the focus from the music to whether he should be allowed to be among those nominated. While Chris would like to speak to his fans directly about this and other issues, pending legal proceedings preclude his doing so at this time. Once the matter before him has been resolved, he intends to do so"

The awards take place March 28. So what do you think — should Chris Brown be on the Kids' Choice Awards Ballot?
