Detroit Free Press reports: As fans eagerly peered on from the lobby, the red-carpet prelude included appearances by “8 Mile” cast members Omar Benson Miller, Miz Korona and Bushman, along with longtime Eminem collaborator and hype man Denaun Porter. For Denaun Porter, who’s heading to London with Eminem for Sunday’s MTV appearance, said “8 Mile” has endured because of its realism.


Eminem and singer Skylar Grey were in the Detroit area, rehearsing for an appearance at this Sunday’s MTV Europe Music Awards. But even as organizers kept a watchful eye on the cinema’s curbside, knowing there was a good chance the two would arrive for the festivities, it didn’t play out. (Vote Eminem below:)
