We already knew the inductees. Now we know that Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, and Michael Stipe are among the musical acts who will either present or perform at the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. The ceremony is being held April 10 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Peter Gabriel will be inducted by Coldplay's Chris Martin, while Questlove of the Roots will instate Hall & Oates and Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello will do the same for KISS. The other honorees are Nirvana, the E Street Band, Yusuf (formerly Cat Stevens), Rolling Stones manager and producer Andrew Loog Oldham, Beatles manager Brian Epstein, and Linda Ronstadt.

Ronstadt has announced she won't attend the event due to health issues related to Parkinson's disease. In her place, Nicks, Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow, and Carrie Underwood will perform in tribute. While Ronstadt was appreciative of the nod by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, "it's something I never gave one thought to," she told the Los Angeles Times last week. "It wasn't on my radar screen."

Ronstadt is not the only honoree who won't be performing at the event; the surviving members of Nirvana will not be playing, and neither will KISS, as they can't agree with organizers on which band members will be inducted. Catherine Garcia

On Friday, Chicago Police Officer Robert Rialmo filed a $10 million lawsuit against the estate of Quintonio LeGrier, a 19-year-old black college student he shot dead on Dec. 26, 2015, along with innocent bystander Bettie Jones, 55. In his suit, a counterclaim against a wrongful-death suit filed by LeGrier's estate, Rialmo claims that LeGrier charged at him with a baseball bat. "There is no question that [Rialmo] suffered very extreme emotional trauma and stress as a result of what Quintonio LeGrier did," says Rialmo's lawyer, Joel A. Brodsky. LeGrier "forced him to shoot," Brodsky said, adding that Rialmo "feels extremely horrible" about killing Jones.

Basileios J. Fourtris, a lawyer for LeGrier's family, said Rialmo's version of events was "pure fantasy." He noted that LeGrier called 911 three times, and was hung up on, before Rialmo arrived, asking, "Why would a kid that called three times asking for police help ever swing a bat at a cop?" "It's a new low for the Chicago Police Department," Foutris added, according to The New York Times. "First you shoot them, then you sue them. It's outrageous." Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Rialmo's legal action is "not a department lawsuit," and Adam Collins, a spokesman for Mayor Rahm Emanuel, told The Times that "the city does not support" Rialmo's counterclaim "and is not involved in any way."

On Monday, rescuers in Tainan, Taiwan, pulled two people out alive from the rubble of a 17-story apartment building that collapsed two days ago following a 6.4-magnitude earthquake.

More than 170 people have been rescued from the building, and 100 are thought to still be buried. Taiwan's Eastern Broadcasting Corp. reports that rescuers heard Tsao Wei-ling cry out "Here I am," and discovered her under the body of her husband. They also found a man in the sixth floor section of the building, and signs of life from a 28-year-old woman and 8-year-old girl trapped in the fifth floor, The Associated Press reports.

The death toll from the quake stands at 36, with 34 dying in the Tainan building. The apartment building was constructed in 1989, and investigators are now looking into whether the developer cut corners, AP says. Catherine Garcia

Helen Mirren delivered a very important message during Super Bowl 50: Don't drink and drive. In a spot for Budweiser, Mirren said that as a "notoriously frank and uncensored British lady," she wasn't afraid to say that if you drive drunk, you're "utterly useless" and a "selfish coward." "If your brain was donated to science," she continued. "Science would return it." Watch the sobering video below. Catherine Garcia

The Denver Broncos won a turnover-filled Super Bowl 50 Sunday night at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, defeating the Carolina Panthers 24-10.

This is quarterback Peyton Manning's second Super Bowl win. During the first quarter, Brandon McManus of the Broncos made an early field goal, and Malik Jackson followed up with a touchdown. In the second quarter, Jonathan Stewart scored a touchdown for the Panthers, followed by another McManus field goal. McManus had his third field goal of the game during the third quarter, bringing the score to 16-7, but the Panthers earned three points in the fourth quarter after a field goal from Graham Gano. Late in the fourth quarter, C.J. Anderson scored a touchdown for the Broncos. Catherine Garcia

Two very different Doritos ads aired during Super Bowl 50 — one featuring feisty dogs just trying to get their paws on some chips, the other a Dorito-loving fetus being taunted by its father.

Both videos were finalists in the brand's Crash the Super Bowl contest. Over the past nine years, Doritos has given fans the opportunity to create 30-second videos, with the winning one airing during the big game. Doritos says thousands of videos have been submitted since the contest started, and now, in its final year, the winner will receive $1,000,000. That could pay for a whole lot of Doritos.

The performance — complete with a Beyonce army and a uniform inspired by Michael Jackson's 1993 Super Bowl attire — then shifted gears, and Beyonce paired up with Bruno Mars for a mashup and dance off. Watch the performance below. Catherine Garcia
