Despite injuries to his hand after a fight with Chris Brown outside a Hollywood recording studio, Frank Ocean will still perform at this year's Grammy Awards.

The singer raised concerns over the likelihood of his performance after the violent incident last weekend, which left Brown sporting a bandaged hand (despite claims he had not thrown a punch during the fight with Ocean). Ocean tweeted after the incident: "Cut my finger now I can't play w two hands at the grammys."

In an official announcement from the Grammys organisers, Ocean is listed alongside a number of huge stars confirmed to perform on 10 February.

Other stars named on the bill are Justin Timberlake, Jack White, the Black Keys, Alicia Keys, Maroon 5, Rihanna, Mumford & Sons and Taylor Swift.

No love lost: his brawl with Chris Brown will not affect Ocean's Grammy appearance

The duo came to blows when a dispute over a parking space broke out in Hollywood, with friends of each artist clashing violently in the street.

A source told TMZ that as Brown attempted to leave the studio, but Ocean and his entourage blocked his exit with Ocean apparently saying: "This is my studio, this is my parking spot."

Brown reportedly came forward to shake Ocean's hand, but was attacked by one of the 'Lost' singer's crew members which sparked a mass brawl in which both singers attacked each other.
