For Two Shows This Weekend

0822_eminem_getty$66,000 per song ... that's how much money Eminem reportedly made to perform at a U.K. music festival this weekend -- and he performed roughly FIFTY songs!!!

Eminem hit the stage at the V Festival in England this weekend -- a two night affair. According to the British tabloid The Sun, Slim Shady (pictured above at the festival) raked in a cool TWO MILLION pounds for the 2 nights of work ... which translates to roughly $3.3 million.

Em reportedly performed for 90 minutes on both Saturday and Sunday night -- and was joined on stage by Rihanna ... who is said to have received around $825,000 per night to perform as well.

Calls and emails to Em's reps were not immediately returned.

Recovery, indeed. Check out a snippet of the performance below.

It's amazing that people are on here saying that he earns it, why does he earn 3 million dollars for 2 days, I am a teacher and will never make 1 million dollars as a teacher in my whole lifetime. 1 nights pay for them could change my whole life, my families life, many many peoples lives. It is not right, he hasn't earned anything. Most of the country is broke or are one check away from homelessness and people think it's right for him to earn $66,000 for a song? Again I'm a teacher I don't make $66,000 in a year, with $66,000 I could put a downpayment on a house, this is not just, this is a ridiculous society where it just doesn't pay to work hard and do the right thing; where moronic reality stars like the situation have the money to really live this life but the poor working dolt never, ever will,, and to make things worse all you poor working dolts think he's earned it, please give me a break.

He sucks, has always sucked. What's he rapping about now. His Grandma, his missing dog? Something nobody gives a **** about.

He's a talented rapper and performer, without a doubt. I have to say though, I absolutely despise rapping on top of a canned vocal. It's like singing along to the radio in the car. Preeetty lame... Why resort to this, Em? Step it up, will ya.
