Eminem also on tap for Feb. 13 awards

Eminem, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, Cee Lo Green, Miranda Lambert and Katy Perry will perform at the 53rd Grammy Awards.

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.
