Beyonce and Adele lead 2017 Grammy nominees

Beyonce's can add another nine Grammy nominations to her lead as the most-nominated woman in Grammys history which is now on 62 nominees . She is up for the main prize, album of the year, for her ambitious visual album, Lemonade, which tackles themes of race and female identity. Formation is also up for song and record of the year.

She's up against Adele in all 3 categories. Beyonce's won 20 trophies altogether, except for the album of the year award. If you remember correctly, Taylor Swift took it in 2015 which lead to Kanye 'not letting Tay finish'

Yeezus receives eight nominations this year for his album The Life Of Pablo - all in the rap categories. Drake and Rihanna also have eight nominations, including three for their hit collaboration, Work.

Making Grammy history is Chicago-born musician Chance The Rapper with 7 nominations, whose album Coloring Book is the first streaming-only record to be recognised by the Recording Academy.
