Beyonce has scored nine nominations for the 2017 Grammy Awards, extending her lead as the most-nominated woman in Grammys history.

The singer is up for the main prize, album of the year, for her ambitious visual album, Lemonade, which tackles themes of race and female identity.

Beyonce’s single Formation is also up for song and record of the year.

In all three categories, Beyonce is up against Adele – who previously won the ceremony’s top three prizes in 2012.

Beyonce now has 62 Grammy nominations across her work as a solo artist and as part of Destiny’s Child, making her the fourth most-nominated artist ever.

The pop star has won 20 trophies altogether, although she has yet to clinch the album of the year prize, having been beaten to the title by Beck in 2015 – much to the disgust of Kanye West, who stormed the stage in protest.

Kanye West receives eight nominations this year for his album The Life Of Pablo – all in the rap categories.

Rihanna and Drake also have eight nominations, including three for their hit collaboration, Work.

Making Grammy history is Chicago-born musician Chance The Rapper, whose album Coloring Book is the first streaming-only record to be recognized by the Recording Academy.

Chance The Rapper achieves seven nominations, including best new artist, without ever releasing a physical album or digital download.

Beyonce and Adele go head to head with Justin Bieber, Drake and Sturgill Simpson in the best album category.

If Adele wins, she will become only the second woman to receive the best album prize twice, after Taylor Swift.

Notably absent from the shortlist is David Bowie, who was tipped to win for his critically-acclaimed Blackstar album.

The record does make an appearance in the best alternative album category, as does Radiohead’s A Moon Shaped Pool.

Coldplay have also fared badly, receiving just one nomination – best music video – despite selling millions of copies of their latest album, A Head Full Of Dreams.

Prince receives a posthumous nomination for his final album, Hit N Run Phase Two, in the best engineered, non-classical category, where Blackstar also makes the shortlist.

British star James Corden will host

The 2017 Grammy Awards, which take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 12, will be hosted by James Corden.


James Corden’s debut on CBS’ The Late, Late Show has been praised by fans and critics.

British James Corden, 36, a relative unknown in the US, was joined by Tom Hanks and Mila Kunis for the first show in LA on March 23.

He introduced himself to the audience, saying: “However shocked you are that I am doing this job, you will never be as shocked as I am.”

A raft of A-listers also joined forces to record videos for his first show.James Corden Late Late Show debut

“I’m sure lots of people are wondering how I ended up in this seat, and I include myself in that too, but rather than tell you we thought we would show you this,” James Corden said, introducing a Charlie And The Chocolate Factory-themed sketch.

It included appearances from Simon Cowell, Eddie Redmayne and Chris Rock all devastated or furious after opening chocolate bars without the golden ticket inside, before James Corden finds the winning ticket in the street.

Further cameos from Meryl Streep, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jay Leno put James Corden through his paces.

James Corden, who was not widely known in the US before, was praised for his likeability.

When Late Late Show host James Corden asked if Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher had already gotten married, the actress responded: “Maybe.”

Then James Corden asked to see Mila Kunis’ left ring finger and she flashed what looked like a wedding band at the audience, according to the Daily Mirror.

“They are married, look!” said James Corden, who had reportedly asked during a commercial break if he could reveal her secret.

Last month, Ellen DeGeneres got a similarly indefinite response when she tried to get Mila Kunis to admit whether she and Ashton Kutcher had tied the knot already.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher welcomed a daughter, Wyatt, in September 2014.

Ashton Kutcher had already hinted at a union between the pair. In January, he posted a message written in sand, which was signed “The Kutchers”.

Gavin and Stacey star James Corden has been confirmed as Craig Ferguson’s successor as host of CBS’ The Late Late Show.

“I can’t wait to get started,” said James Corden.

The British comedian said he was “thrilled and honored” to follow the “brilliant” Craig Ferguson and that it was “hugely exciting… to host such a prestigious show”.

James Corden, 36, will take over next year from Ferguson, who has been hosting the late-night talk show since 2005 and is stepping down in December.

The Gavin and Stacey star’s previous hosting duties have included four stints at the Brit Awards.

James Corden, 35, is set to star alongside Meryl Streep in the Disney film, which opens in the US on Christmas Day and will go towards making him well known on the other side of the Atlantic.

His strong social media presence, which includes 4.3 million Twitter followers, is also seen a factor working in his favour.

James Corden has already had success on Broadway, winning a Tony Award for One Man, Two Guv’nors – a role he originated on the London stage.

Craig Ferguson announced in April this year that he would step down from his role in December.
