Bellagio Fountain Damaged
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A man was arrested after swimming out to the Bellagio fountain on the Las Vegas Strip, briefly stopping the famous water show and damaging the fountain. Las Vegas police say a 39-year-old man was arrested Thursday and faces misdemeanor trespassing and felony property damage charges. The Las Vegas man apparently climbed over the walls and swam out to the fountain jets around 9 p.m. in the 8.5-acre, man-made lake, which has an average depth of 7 feet and is as deep as 14 feet. He refused to get out and kicked the jets, which were turned off. There was at least $5,000 worth of damage. He was taken into custody about two hours later via an inflatable boat. A hotel spokeswoman said the shows resumed and minor repairs were made.

Twenty-time Grammy winner Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will play the 54th Annual Grammy Awards February 12th. The show will air on CBS. The Recording Academy announced this morning that Springsteen and company will make the Grammys the first stop on their upcoming Wrecking Ball tour.

The Boss joins a list of Grammy performers this year that includes Paul McCartney, Adele, Foo Fighters, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Bruno Mars. The Grammys are known for high-profile collaborations and this year will see Coldplay with Rihanna; Glen Campbell and Blake Shelton together with The Band Perry; and Kelly Clarkson will duet with Jason Aldean.

Newly announced stars presenting Grammys this year include actor and recording artist Jack Black, six-time GRAMMY winner and current three-time nominee Fergie, three-time GRAMMY winner and current nominee Amir “?uestlove” Thompson of the Roots, and nine-time Grammy winner Ringo Starr. They join previously announced presenters Dierks Bentley, Drake, Miranda Lambert, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

LL Cool J will be hosting the Grammys for the first time. He’s been hosting The Grammy Nominations Concert since it started in 2008. He’ll be the first official host in seven years, replacing a system of rotating presenters acting as master of ceremonies. The Grammys will be shown live Sunday February 12th.
