Eminem's relapse didn't last long: The rapper leads the pack for the 2011 Grammy Awards with 10 nominations, including for his latest album, Recovery, and for his hit song "Love The Way You Lie" with Rihanna. The nominations were announced Wednesday night in Los Angeles at a ceremony hosted by LL Cool J. Bruno Mars came in second with seven nominations; Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, and Lady Antebellum each got six. Michael Jackson was nominated for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "This Is It," and Justin Bieber and Drake will go head-to-head for Best New Artist. Surprisingly absent from the list was Ke$ha, who was thought to be a shoe-in for Best New Artist with her million-selling debut album and blockbuster summer hits.
