Eminem Among Performers at 2011 Grammy Awards
Following the release of Eminem‘s official Grammys commercial last week, it has been confirmed that the chart-topping rapper is set to perform at the 53rd annual awards show on Feb. 13.
At last year’s Grammy Awards, Eminem shared the stage with Drake and Lil Wayne to deliver his verse on ‘Forever’ but this year Slim Shady will perform music from his comeback album ‘Recovery,’ which pulled in the highest record sales of 2010. No details have been revealed about the song selection for the upcoming show. At the MTV VMAs in September, Em took the stage with Rihanna to perform their hit single ‘Love the Way You Lie.’
Currently, Eminem leads the pack of Grammy nominations, with nods in ten categories including Album of the Year for ‘Recovery,’ Best Rap Solo Performance for ‘Not Afraid’ and Best Rap Song, Song and Record of the Year for ‘Love the Way You Lie.’ The Detroit emcee has collected 11 Grammy awards in the span of his career. In addition to Eminem, Cee Lo Green, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Arcade Fire, and country singer Miranda Lambert are also scheduled to perform.
The 53rd annual Grammy Awards will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, on Feb. 13.
