Chris Brown hasn’t attended a Grammy Awards show since 2008, but Breezy is reportedly set to make a big comeback at this year’s show, and the word on the street is that he may be performing!
Though Brown’s performance has yet to be formally announced, an anonymous source told the Associated Press Monday that the singer — up for 3 Grammys — will take the stage at the show on Sunday night.
Rihanna — who is up for four awards — is also scheduled to perform at the show, which is known as the biggest music event of the year.
Chris and Rihanna were both supposed to perform at the 2009 Grammys, however both performances were immediately canceled after news broke that Chris had assaulted Rihanna the night before following a pre-Grammy event.
As a result of the incident, Brown was charged and placed probation, and was put on a restraining order that said he had to stay at least 10 yards away from Rihanna at special events.
Since then, Brown has decided against attending the Grammys, even though he was nominated for three awards last year.
Last February, just in time for the 2010 Grammys, a judge finally eased the restraining order after Rihanna’s lawyers accepted a request from Chris’ lawyers to lift it, however a previous engagement prevented the 22-year-old singer from attending the ceremony.
Chris Brown has been nominated for Grammys in five of the past six years, but he has never taken home a trophy. His hit single “Look At Me Now,” which features rappers Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes, is up for two Grammys: “Best Rap Song” and “Best Rap Performance.”
Rihanna, on the other hand, has won a total four Grammys, three with Jay-Z and one alone, which she won last year for her smash single “Only Girl (in the World).”
The 2012 Grammys are set to air live on CBS this coming Sunday (Feb 12) from the Staples Center in Los Angeles!
