It will take a lot of effort on their part to get him and Dr. Dre back to the Grammys to perform."

But a spokesperson for Eminem has hit out at the claims. The rep says, "This is untrue. He was happy to be there and perform with Dre. Voting is voting, and there's only so much you can do about that."
