Beyonce, Drake and Adele are leading nominations for the Grammys 2017. Pop star Meghan Trainor announced the nominees in the four main categories: album of the year, song of the year, record of the year and best new artist, live on CBS This Morning on 5 December.

Music's finest will flock to the Staples Center in Los Angeles on 12 February 2017 when the 59th Grammys will take place. Competing in the coveted album of the year category are Beyonce's Lemonade, Adele's 25 and Drake's Views. Justin Bieber's Love Yourself is up for song of the year alongside Beyonce's Formation and Lukas Graham's 7 Years.

The Late Late Show presenter James Corden will host the ceremony for the first time, taking over from LL Cool J who enjoyed a five-year run.

Announcing Corden as the new face of the music awards, Recording Academy president Neil Portnow previously said: "Thanks to Carpool Karaoke, we've all been on some incredible rides with James, and The Recording Academy couldn't be more excited to welcome his passion and enthusiasm for music, both as an entertainer and a fan, to the Grammy stage."

The Grammys 2015 saw Taylor Swift win album of the year for 1989, Mark Ronson scoop record of the year for Uptown Funk, Ed Sheeran earn song of the year for Thinking Out Loud and Meghan Trainor crowned best new artist.
