2011 Grammy Nominees - Eminem, Lady Antebellum & Bruno Mars Lead
Eminem definitely come back for good in the music industry. What retirement was he talking about at the beginning of the year? Obvious this wouldn’t happen too soon. After all, the Slim Shady has all the reasons in the world to stay in business for as long as possible to the detriment of his competitors. He’s already got the year’s best-selling album and now he has just been announced to lead the nominees for the 53rd annual Grammy Awards. He picked up no less than 10 Grammy nominations for all three of the top prizes, Record, Song and Album of the Year - Song and Record of the Year for “Love the Way You Lie” and Album of the Year for Recovery, which is also up for Rap Album of the Year. His nods also include Best Rap Solo Performance for “Not Afraid”, Pop Collaboration With Vocals for his turn on B.o.B’s “Airplanes Part II” and Best Rap Song for “Lie”.
2011 Grammy Nominees

Not far behind him stands the country trio Lady Antebellum that have also been nominated for all three of top prizes, Record, Song and Album of the Year. The group is nominated for its album Need You Now and the title track, a pop/country ballad. Following closely behind them is Bruno Mars, who landed seven nominations, followed by Jay-Z and Lady Gaga, who earned six apiece, B.o.B and John Legend who will head into the Grammys with five nods.
Besides, for the first time in Grammy history, three of the five nominees for Record of the Year are collaborations: Eminem featuring Rihanna with “Love The Way You Are”, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys with “Empire State Of Mind” and B.o.B featuring Bruno Mars on “Nothin’ On You.” Surprisingly, some key hits were passed over for this category, including “California Gurls” by Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg, “Airplanes II” by B.o.B featuring Eminem and Hayley Williams, Lady Gaga’s ”Bad Romance,” Bruno Mars’ ”Just The Way You Are” and Taylor Swift’s ”Mine.”

The same thing happen in the Album of the Year category. Albums such as Susan Boyle’s I Dreamed A Dream, Jay-Z’s The Blueprint 3, Sade’s Soldier Of Love, Miranda Lambert’s Revolution, Usher’s Raymond V Raymond and Michael Buble’s Crazy Love have been passed over.
Teen idol Justin Bieber and hip-hop star Drake made it in the Best New Artist finals, but the 16-year-old singer is the youngest solo artist to be nominated for this category since LeAnn Rimes, who was 14 when she was nominated and won 14 years ago.
