Completing Beyonce’s nominations are Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best Music Video, Best Music Film, Best Rock Performance for a collaboration with Jack White, and Best Rap/Sung Performance for a team up with Kendrick Lamar. The Bey hive is abuzz not just with the performer’s nominations but also with her announced performance at the awards show.
Meanwhile, Adele is also set to perform at the ceremony and is nominated in the Best Pop Vocal Album.
Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga are also expected to take the stage. Expected to add an emotional punch into this year’s show is a tribute performance in memory of Prince and George Michael.
The Grammy Awards started in 1959. It has seen the change in technology when it comes to music production and distribution. This year digital and streaming technology has reached the Grammy’s with the nomination of Chance The Rapper in seven categories for his ‘streaming-only’ first album “Coloring Book.” This, along with the nomination of Beyonce and Adele, brings to light the convergence of traditional distribution through CDs and records and digital distribution through streaming services and digital purchases. Beyonce released her visual album “Lemonade” first through streaming, while Adele released “25” through physical records.
