Beyonce, Drake, Rihanna, Kanye West, and Chance The Rapper lead 2017 Grammy nominations 

WINNING TEAM…
The music has been dropped, the eligible artists have been selected, and now it’s time to find out which of your faves will bring home one or more of the coveted little golden figurines at the 2017 Grammy Awards ceremony.
GAGGGGGGGGGGGGG…
Today, music lovers worldwide got a peak at the bevy of luminaries poised to stand in the winner’s circle at the Recording Academy’s 59th annual celebration of artistry– which will be hosted by Carpool Karaoke star, James Corden, rather than rapper/actor L. L. Cool J, who’s famously conducted the televised ceremony for the last five years.
SURPRISEEEEEEEEEEE…
Unsurprisingly, the #BeyHive’s flawless leader, Beyonce, leads the pack of 2017 nominees with a total of 9 Grammy nods in categories including Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year for “Formation.”
According to her fanbase website, the 35-year-old bootylicious boomer is also scheduled to slay Los Angeles’ Staples Center stage during the awards ceremony… However, the Queen has yet to confirm her rumored performance.
