- Chris Brown has been added to the list of performers for Sunday’s Grammy Awards. It was three years ago, just before the 2009 Grammys, that Brown was arrested on domestic violence charges for beating his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. (She will be performing at Sunday’s ceremony, as well.) Alicia Keys and Bonnie Raitt were also added to Sunday’s list of performers; they will be part of a tribute to the late Etta James. Brown’s performance will, for some reason, be part of a special dance/electronica segment that will also feature Deadmau5, David Guetta and, um, Foo Fighters?

- The Juno Awards announced nominees for the best of Canadian music. Album of the year nominees are Avril Lavigne, Drake, Justin Bieber, Michael Buble and Nickelback. So there ya go.
