Frank Ocean and Alicia Keys were recently in the news; the latter for being in a recording studio brawl with Chris Brown and Keys for becoming Blackberry’s new Global Creative Director. They both have been added to perform on music’s biggest night at the 2013 Grammy Awards.

Airing February 10th on CBS, the Grammys also announced that Maroon 5 will be hitting the stage.

The 55th Annual award show will be hosted once again by rapper LL Cool J. Other performers at the awards include Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Fun, and new comer Ed Sheeran.

It will be interesting to watch Frank Ocean, who is nominated for six Grammy awards, up against the same guy he fought with last Sunday, Chris Brown. Well, I guess Ocean’s the happier of the two; he’s not the one with a hand in cast.
