From a meat-dress-wearing diva to a rapper to a country trio and beyond, this year's Grammy nominations in the top Album of the Year catergory are diverse to say the least.

The trophies won't be handed out until Feb. 13, but that doesn't mean you can't weigh in on your favorite of the five nominated choices.

Arcade Fire's The Suburbs
The album by the Canadian indie rockers was released in August and was described by frontman Win Butler as "a mix of the Depeche Mode and Neil Young." It drew two other nods this year: Best Alternative Music Album and Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals.

S--- my dad says? Not if your dad's Eminem.

The rapper may use R-rated lyrics in his rhymes, but around the house the mouth stays clean.

"I'm a parent. I have daughters," Eminem, 37, tells 60 Minutes in an interview airing Sunday. "I don't cuss. I mean, how would I really sound, as a person … walking around my house [saying] 'Bitch, pick this up,' you know what I mean?"

Eminem, who has a daughter Hailie, 14, with ex-wife Kim, is also bringing up Lainey, daughter of Kim's sister, and Whitney, Kim's daughter from a previous relationship.

BoB rocked two of his singles, "Nothin' On You" and "Airplanes" with Bruno Mars and Hayley Williams, respectively.

Eminem was joined on stage with his duet partner, Rihanna, who launched into summer anthem "Love the Way You Lie" after his powerhouse performance of "Not Afraid."

Rihanna & Eminem Play with Fire in Shocking New Video

Originally posted 08/06/2010 09:05AM

Tackling a subject she knows all too well, Rihanna takes on domestic violence by being featured in an Eminem video starring Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan as a couple stuck in a cycle of fighting, drinking, shoplifting and pyromania.

In the video, Rihanna, 22, sings outside a house that bursts into flames while a couple – Fox and Monaghan – alternately physically abuse and kiss each other. In a field of yellow grass, meanwhile, Eminem raps in his signature undershirt (yes, a "wifebeater").

As the song progresses, the couple go to a bar, play manipulative emotional games, beat the tar out of a rival for Fox's affections, steal booze, and then take the boxing match back to their home, which is one of several things that spontaneously combust, presumably a metaphor for the emotional trauma the characters are suffering.
