Chris Brown To Perform At 2012 Grammy Awards Three Years After Rihanna Incident
Three years ago Chris Brown attacked then-girlfriend Rihanna on their way to a pre-Grammy party, that assault led to five years of probation after being charged with a felony attack. Now three years later Chris Brown is returning to the show that almost ended his career.
Brown was unofficially announced as the Grammy’s newest performer on Monday night by an unidentified source.
Since watching his career nearly hit rock bottom Chris Brown has bounced back with the multi-hit album ”F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies)” which has received three Grammy nodes including best R&B album. Brown also has nominations in ”Look at Me Now” which which is also nominated for best rap song and best rap performance.
Also performing on Grammy night is Rihanna who has been nominated for four Grammy’s including album of the year for her platinum selling album “Loud.”
Chris Brown has not attended the Grammy awards ceremony since his attack against Rihanna in 2009, even after he was nominated for three awards in 2011.
In February 2011 a judge eased the restraining order against Chris Brown and Rihanna’s lawyer said she didn’t object to the stay-away provisions being halted. The stay-away restriction was lessened from 150 feet to just 30 feet.
CBS will air the Grammy Awards live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
I wonder if there will be any awkward moments shared between the former power couple at the show.
Will you be tuning in to see what Chris Brown can bring to the table after a three year Grammy departure?
