LOS ANGELES (AP) - With his 10 nominations, Eminem has the potential to sweep Sunday night’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles _ as well as win that elusive album of the year trophy, a category for which he’s had three nominations but never a win.

His favored “Recovery” album was 2010’s best-selling album of the year and marked a major comeback for Eminem, who had been addled by a prescription drug addiction and critical malaise.

But the gifted and twisted rapper might get tripped up by some fierce competition, including a song that rivals him for coarseness _ Cee Lo Green’s “(Expletive) You,” which is in competition with Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie,” featuring Rihanna, in the record and song of the year categories.

The Grammys will be broadcast on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
