Chris Brown will perform at Grammy awards

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Entertainer and Tappahannock-native Chris Brown will perform at this year's Grammy awards.

It's the same event where his career almost ended three years ago.

Brown assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna at a pre-Grammy party in 2009.

He is serving five years of probation for that felony attack.

Brown has since been nominated for three Grammys for his recent album.

Brown will hit the stage at Sunday's show. Rihanna will also perform at the show.
