The Grammys Stop Fighting the Future With 2017 Nominees
publish date: 2016-12-06
The nominations for the 59 Annual Grammy Awards were announced Tuesday (Dec. 6), and as the experts predicted (and as the show's producers no doubt prayed for), it's a battle of the biggest. The list of the most nominated artists doubles as the list of the artists who have dominated conversation for the last 12 months: Beyonce, Drake, Rihanna, Kanye West, and even Chance the Rapper. Despite Taylor Swift essentially taking the year off — nope, no nominations for Nils Sjoberg either — and Frank Ocean declining the pleasure of being nominated, the star power on display in this year's Grammy crop is blinding.
