Alica Keys (14-time Grammy winner) and Bonnie Raitt will be collaborating a special performance for Etta James who passed away in January.

Chris Brown will be performing at  this year's Grammy's .  Brown will be performing in a dance and electronica collaboration with Foo Fighters, Lil Wayne, David Guetta and deadmau5.  This is the first time he will be performing for the event since he beat his then girlfriend Rihanna on the evening before the 2009 Grammy's.  Rihanna who was rumoured to be recently reconnected with Brown is also set to perform on Saturday with Cold Play.

The Beach Boys who have not performed together for more than two decades and have never won a Grammy (can you believe that!) will be performing at the Grammy Awards with  Maroon 5 and Foster the People (who are both nominated for Grammys)  for a special performance.

Katy Perry who has recently separated from Russell Brand has been added to the fantastic list of performers on Sunday's Grammys.  Perry is up for two awards including Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for "Firework."
