Frank Ocean Grammy Performance Confirmed
Looks like the 2013 Grammy Awards will be Ocean-sized. That’s right: Frank Ocean, who is up for an armload of honors at this year’s Grammys, has been added to the list of performers confirmed for the 55th annual ceremony, which CBS will broadcast live on Sunday, Feb. 10 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Ocean joins a stellar list of performers that already included the Black Keys, Fun., the Lumineers, Mumford and Sons and Jack White. Like Ocean, all of the above artists have snagged multiple nominations for the 2013 Grammys; check out a more extensive list of nominees here.
Ocean hinted at his performance in a tweet he posted hours after getting in a scuffle with Chris Brown over a parking lots outside a Los Angeles studio last weekend. “Cut my finger now I can’t play w two hands at the grammys,” Ocean tweeted after the incident, basically letting the cat out of the bag about the then-unannounced performance. It was later reported that Ocean wanted to press charges against Brown over the incident.
Ocean is up for a total of six awards at this year’s Grammys, including the biggies Album of the Year (‘Channel Orange’), Record of the Year (‘Thinkin Bout You’) and Best New Artist.
