The Grammy nominations are out! They will be held Feb 12, 2017. Beyonce topped the nominees for the 59th annual Grammy awards, scoring a leading nine nominations.

Drake, Rihanna and Kanye West are tied for the second-most nominations, with eight nominations each. Chance the Rapper, up for his first Grammys, scored seven nominations.

Adele scored five nominations, after casual Grammy observers were outraged last year that the British singer-songwriter wasn't nominated for her recently released album, 25, due to the fact that it wasn't yet eligible.
