She has won 20 Grammy Awards and is the most-nominated woman in Grammy history with 62 nominations. Regardless, it will win the best alternative music album. This morning, Gayle King, Charlie Rose, and Norah O'Donnell of c-b-s this morning announced the 2017 Grammy Nominees! However, it will not be easy because the competition is quite stiff. "Anti" is her second album to top the Billboard 200, and it's her first album since 2012's "Unapologetic".

Adele also walked away with five nominations, including record of the year.

Beyonce and Adele's competition for the album of the year category also includes Justin Bieber's album objective and Drake with his album Views. "In 'Lazarus, ' he's in an actual hospital bed, so it seems to be, when you look at all this in hindsight, it's clear it's meticulously planned final statement album of a man who knew he was dying".

Lukas Graham, the Danish pop group with songs that explore income and social inequalities, was nominated for both Record of the Year and Song of the Year for "7 Years".

The eligibility deadline has kept many artists from being nominated in the same 12-month span in which they release their album.

Lemonade is the drink of choice for Recording Academy voters. Kanye is unlikely to be happy with his nomination as, while he is up for a rap award, he has missed out on being shortlisted for major categories including album or song of the year. The late David Bowie's "Blackstar" was a hit with both his peers and fans, but many argue the Grammys failed to honor him in favor of younger pop stars. "I'll stay up anytime to hear news like this ... just not sure of how to get to sleep now!" "But listen to (his) album - it's quite extraordinary", Portnow pointed out, according to Boston Globe. If she wins in every category, she will be the winningest female artist in Grammy history, surpassing Alison Krauss, who has 27. It is no surprise because Beyonce has been in the music industry for a long time.

However, there is at least one category Queen B and Adele are not eligible for and that is best new artist. In 2013, the Canadian born singer and actor won his first and so far only Grammy Award, "Best Rap Album", for his album "Take Care".

Joining Bowie in the Best Alternative Music Album category are Radiohead's A Moon Shaped Pool, Iggy Pop's Post Pop Depression, PJ Harvey's The Hope Six Demolition Project and Bon Iver's 22, A Million. It is therefore not surprising that she has the most nominations.
