Eminem up for International Album

Eminem's remarkable start to 2011 could continue with victory at the BRITs.

 The American star is up for International Album with 'Recovery' but it looks like being a hotly contested category with Katy Perry, The Kings of Leon, Cee Lo Green and Arcade Fire also in the running.

Kings of Leon won the award in 2009 with Only By The Night - will they make it a double in 2011?

The five nominations are:

  • Arcade Fire - The Suburbs, 
  • Cee Lo Green - The Lady Killer
  • Eminem - Recovery
  • Katy Perry Teenage Dream,
  • Kings of Leon - Come Around

Previous winners of International Album:

2010 Lady Gaga - The Fame
2009 Kings of Leon - Only by the Night
2008 Foo Fighters - Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace
2007 The Killers - Sam's Town
