Grammy Awards: We are now expecting Eminem to lose album of the year
With Lady Antebellum winning best country album (undeserved), as well as song of the year (undeserved) and now record of the year (alas, undeserved), rapper Eminem should now be considered a surprise album of the year win. If so, Grammy voters have again turned their back on hip-hop, as multiple albums from Kanye West (all of them superior to Eminem's exercise in self-hate that is "Recovery") should have won.
It would also be the second year in a row that a country artist surprised, as Taylor Swift's "Fearless," though a massive hit, wasn't seen as an album of the year shoe-in.
