LOS ANGELES, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Chris Brown
is to perform at the 54th annual Grammy Awards show in Los Angeles, CBS said Tuesday.
Brown has skipped the Grammys ceremonies for the last few years. He was arrested for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna during a heated argument the day of the 2009 prize presentation. Both he and Rihanna were scheduled to perform at the show, but they backed out at the last minute.
Brown pleaded guilty and was sentenced to probation and community service and was ordered to attend anger-management classes.
Tony Bennett and Carrie Underwood also are to perform together at Sunday's ceremony at the Staples Center.
Alicia Keys and Bonnie Raitt are to perform a tribute to Etta James, as well, while LL Cool J is to serve as host of the event.
Added as presenters are Marc Anthony, Lady Antebellum and Ryan Seacrest, CBS said.
