In a sign of changing times, and of a changing Eminem, his 10 nominations for the 2011 Grammy Awards were not controversial, but predictable and respected.
The rapper is nominated for album of the year along with nine honors, leading the entire music industry. Bruno Mars earned an impressive seven nods.
Other top nominees included Lady Antebellum, Jay-Z and Lady Gaga, who were all nominated for six. Lady Gaga also was nominated for album of the year.
Country trio Lady Antebellum was rewarded for its huge crossover successes, earning nominations for album of the year, record of the year and song of the year.
Justin Bieber, astoundingly, is up for Best New Artist. "It feels amazing. I can't believe I'm in this position. Thank you," he said. "I don't know what to say."
Other nominees for record of the year included Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' anthem for NYC, "Empire State of Mind." But not everyone got the love they expected.
Katy Perry's "California Gurls" was a huge hit but shut out of the record and song of the year (Katy's Teenage Dream was nominated for album of the year).
The evening's biggest snub may belong to Ke$ha. The party girl singer had a top-selling debut and several hits, but was not nominated for any awards.
On the flip side, she cannot sing, so you can sort of see it. Anyway, follow the jump for the full list of nominees for the 2011 Grammy Awards ...
