All the announced acts are top nominees this year. Eminem leads the 2011 field with 10 nominations, with mentions in the album, record and song of the year categories. Gaga — who opened last year’s show dueting with Elton John — is up for six awards, Green and Perry for four and Arcade Fire and Lambert with three.
Star power has proven critical to Grammy ratings: Last year’s glittering, performance-packed show generated the biggest viewership in years for the Recording Academy kudocast.
The 2011 Grammys air on Feb. 13 from Staples Center on CBS.
