Eminem and Bruno Mars Lead the Grammy Nominations, While Miami Gets No Love

Eminem was the name on everyone's lips during last night's Grammy nominations special.

The Detroit rapper stole the show with ten nominations. They included nods for Record of the Year (for "Love the Way You Lie"), Album of the Year (for Recovery),

Best Rap Solo Performance (for "Not Afraid"), Pop Collaboration With

Vocals (for his verse in B.o.B's "Airplanes Part II"), and Best Rap Song

(for "Love the Way You Lie").

But no Rick Ross? No Flo Rida? No Pitbull? Despite huge commercial success this year, the Magic City got robbed. 

Bruno Mars got the second most nominations, at seven, thanks to his hit "Just The Way You Are" and the "Nothin' On You" collaboration with B.o.B. Country trio Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga, and Jay-Z,

trailed Eminem with six nominations a piece. The show's opener, Katy

Perry, went home with four nominations, including Album of the Year for Teenage Dream. Drake, Justin Bieber, Florence + the Machine, Mumford and Sons,

and Esperanza Spalding will duel it out for Best New Artist. Our

favorite surprise; Cee Lo's "F*** You" getting nominated for Record of

the Year. Out least favorite surprise; Miami got no love!
