 The 2011 Grammy Nominations Are In... (Congrats Drake, Eminem, B.o.B., Cee-Lo, Lady Gaga & More!) | VIBE


Eminem Dominates Grammy Nominations


[pic - click to view]



Rapper scores a leading 10 mentions, including his third career nom for album of the year.

The Recording Academy certainly is doing its part to aid in Eminem's recovery.

The veteran Detroit rapper scored a leading 10 Grammy nominations Wednesday, including song and record of the year (for "Love the Way You Lie," featuring Rihanna) and his third career nom for album of the year. His Recovery also is up for rap album of the year, a prize he has taken four times. This looks like the erstwhile Marshall Mathers' year to break through in the top category.

Singer-songwriter-producer Bruno Mars is next with seven mentions, followed by Jay-Z, Lady Antebellum and Lady Gaga with six apiece. Jeff Beck, B.o.B, David Frost, Philip Lawrence and John Legend drew five noms each.

There weren't a tremendous number of surprises among the major categories, though there is plenty of fresh blood in the album of the year race. Lady Gaga nabbed her second consecutive nom in the category with The Fame Monster, but three first-timers made the cut: Nashville country trio Lady Antebellum (Need You Now), Canadian rock band Arcade Fire (The Suburbs) and California pop/tabloid queen Katy Perry (Teenage Dream).

The latter is the only real stunner. Perry, a phenomenally successful singles act, gets an album of the year mention but was shut out of the song and record categories. Her set debuted at No. 1 in late summer but sold only a middling 192,000 units despite including a No. 1 single ("California Gurls") and another ("Teenage Dream") that topped the chart a week after the album's release.

Among the hopefuls left on the outside looking in for album of the year: Jay-Z's The Blueprint 3, the Roots' How I Got Over -- both of which are up for rap album of the year -- and Miranda Lambert's Revolution, which is vying for country album honors.

There are a few eyebrow-raisers among the biggest categories: the Glee cast scoring a nom for best pop performance by a duo or group for "Don't Stop Believin' (Regionals Version)," upright-bass jazz act Esperanza Spalding snagging a best new artist mention -- leaving B.o.B on the outside -- and Ray LaMontagne and the Pariah Dogs sneaking a nom for song of the year with "Beg Steal or Borrow."

CBS' telecast of the 53rd annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 13 from Staples Center in Los Angeles should draw more than the usual attention from the FCC and the Parents Television Council. Why? The song and record of the year noms for Cee Lo Green's "F--- You." Co-written by Mars, the bird-flipping nyah-nyah of a song was "Forget You" in its radio edit. It will be interesting to see how it's referred to onstage -- and sung, if Cee-Lo is invited to perform it during the show.

Joining "Love the Way You Lie" and "F--- You" as double nominees for song and record of the year is Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now." For song of the year -- a songwriter's award -- they'll compete against "Beg Steal or Borrow" and Lambert's "The House That Built Me."

The other hopefuls for record of the year -- which goes to the artist, producer and engineer and/or mixer -- are "Nothin' on You," by B.o.B featuring Mars, and "Empire State of Mind," from Jay-Z and Alicia Keys.

Other than Spalding, the new artist race features nonsurprise nominees Justin Bieber, Drake, Florence & the Machine and Mumford & Sons.

Up against Eminem, Jay-Z and the Roots for best rap album are Drake's Thank Me Later and B.o.B's The Adventures of Bobby Ray. Vying with Lambert and Lady Antebellum for the country album nod are Dierks Bentley's Up on the Ridge, Zac Brown Band's You Get What You Give and Jamey Johnson's The Guitar Song.

The lineup for best hard rock performance reads like a history lesson: ultraveteran Ozzy Osbourne is up against the '90s-bred Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots plus the generational supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, comprising Foo f!ghters frontman Dave Grohl, Queens of the Stone Age vet Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin stalwart John Paul Jones.

The noms were announced during the third annual The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! -- Countdown to Music's Biggest Night, which aired in primetime on CBS from Club Nokia in Los Angeles.

Wanted to see Drake win a Grammy, but he's not winning either of the two he's nominated for.

I'm also suprised as s**t at all the nominations that B.O.B. got.
