Spread the love

The industry has been anxiously awaiting the 59th annual Grammy Award nominations and they’re finally here! This morning, CBS announced the nominees for the upcoming awards show airing on Feb. 12, 2017, and the list is full of artists we know quite well. The Late Late Show host James Corden will be hosting; thus, we know it’s going to be a great night.

Beyoncé leads the pack with nine nominations including Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance and faces off against both Adele and  Justin Bieber in Song of the Year and Album of the Year categories.

Rihanna, Drake, and Kanye West aren’t far behind Queen Bey with eight nominations in many of the same categories, as well as Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best R&B Performance, Best R&B Song, and Best Recording Package.

Newcomers Lukas Graham garnered three nominations and Mike Posner’s catchy dance hit, “I Took a PilliIn Ibiza” slid into the running for Song of the Year. Sturgill Thompson released his debut album in 2013 and his latest A Sailor’s Guide to Earth landed him alongside some of the biggest musicians in the world for Album of the Year.
