It's shaping up to be a big battle between Beyonce and Adele.  Nominations for the 59th Grammy Awards were announced today, and the 2 superstars are going head-to-head in all of the big three categories: Record, Album and Song Of The Year (Adele's Hello and Beyonce's Formation up for both ROTY and SOTY)!  Justin Bieber also claimed nominations in two of the majors, with Love Yourself up for Song Of The Year, and his Purpose album in the running for Album Of The Year!  Quite an accomplishment for the Biebs.  Interesting side note about Song Of The Year is that Ed Sheeran could win it for the 2nd year in a row.  His own Thinking Out Loud won in 2016, and Ed co-wrote Love Yourself with Justin.  The Chainsmokers, fresh off the their performance at The End's Jingle Ball last weekend, earned 3 nominations!  They're in an intriguing Best New Artist category (with country darlings Kelsea Ballerini and Maren Morris, and hip-hoppers Chance The Rapper and Anderson .Paak), as well as Best Pop Performance Duo/Group with Closer, and Best Dance Recording with Don't Let Me Down.  Other big #1 hits from 2016 were recognized, such as Lukas Graham's 7 Years scoring him Record and Song Of The Year nominations, Mike Posner's I Took A Pill In Ibiza up for SOTY and Twenty One Pilots' Stressed Out in for ROTY.  Demi Lovato scored her first ever nomination for Best Pop Album alongside Sia, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber and Adele.  For a full list of nominations, you can go to www.Grammy.com.
