The show will go on, but will the Grammys beef up on extra security?

With big names like Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Johnny Depp all expected to attend Sunday’s Grammy Awards, much attention has been diverted to the ongoing search for Christopher Dorner, the ex-LAPD officer accused of killing three people.

The search, which has taken hundreds of cops to the San Bernardino Mountains and several other states, has no doubt reshuffled the staff at the LAPD, but spokespersons from both the Grammys and the LAPD have remained mum on any major changes in security.

“We have a very significant presence at the Grammys each year and will play an important role in event security this year,” Lt. Andy Neiman told the L.A. Times.

Prior to his killing rampage, Dorner, who was fired from the LAPD in 2008, released a manifesto containing information on who he was planning to kill and celebrities he had admired, including Ellen DeGeneres, Larry David and Christoph Waltz.

According to former LAPD bureau chief John Miller, there is an “anxiety factor” among authorities that is “unbelievable."

“There will be the Grammys Sunday in Los Angeles, where you will have a major police command post,” he told LAist. “I’ve spoken with people there and their problems are very interesting. One problem is, can they get enough cops to police the Grammys, when they have had everyone out deployed on this?"

A reward has since been offered for anyone with information leading to the capture of Dorner, the LAPD announced Sunday morning.

On Saturday, Charlie Sheen, who was also praised in Dorner’s manifesto, released a video message in an effort to “end this thing.”

“I am urging you to call me. Let’s figure out how to end this thing. Call me, I look forward to talking to you.”

The 55th Grammy Awards, hosted by LL Cool J, will be handed out live on Sunday at 8PM ET on CBS.

    Omfg i love One Direction too! They ignore the hates, so why do haters even try...They're just jealous and have no life, just a hater behind a computer screen, probably a little 11 year old...
