The nominees for The GRAMMYs 2017 see Adele, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, and Drake leading the pack
The nominees for the 2017 Grammys were announced at 8:30 am EST today (Tues., Dec. 6). Following early predictions and expectations, there are some guaranteed contenders—and, of course, some surprises. Beyoncé earns the most total nods with nine nominations, while Drake, Rihanna, and Kanye West follow with eight each, respectively.
Contenders for Album Of The Year include Adele “25;” Beyoncé “Lemonade;” Justin Bieber “Purpose;” Drake “Views;” and Sturgill Simpson “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.”
Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, best known as The Chainsmokers, earn three nominations for the 2017 Grammy Awards, which includes a notable nod in Best New Artist category, pinned against Kelsea Ballerini, Chance The Rapper, Maren Morris, and Anderson .Paak.
In the electronic music categories, Best Dance Recording tracks include “Tearing Me Up” by Bob Moses; “Don’t Let Me Down” by The Chainsmokers feat. Daya; “Never Be Like You” by Flume feat. Kai; “Rinse & Repeat” by Riton feat. Kah-Lo; and “Drinkee” by Sofi Tukker.
Best Dance/Electronic Album contenders this year include: Flume “Skin;” Jean-Michel Jarre “Electronica 1: The Time Machine;” Tycho “Epoch,” Underworld “Barbara Barbara, We Face A Shining Future;” and Louie Vega “Louie Vega Starring…XXVIII.”
Among the Beat Remixed Recording nominees are Ryan Raddon (Kaskade x Lipless), Joe Goddard, Josh Williams (Psionics), Timo Maas & James Teej, Andre Allen Anjos (RAC), and staRo.
Early predictions already placed Adele and Beyoncé at the top, expected to earn the most nominations—and those in the most prominent categories. The 2016 Grammy Awards saw Taylor Swift’s “1989” as Album Of The Year, but the question remains (year-after-year), who will take the title this year?
What else can viewers expect from the 2017 Grammys? Some fierce competition between powerhouse Adele and fiery Beyoncé; a tribute to the late Prince; and a bountiful amount of live performances. One thing not to expect: Frank Ocean; who chose not to submit his “Blonde and Endless” for consideration.
