Grammys Winners 2017

(Recording Academy)

The 2017 Grammys honor the best in music on Sunday, and Gossip Cop has a full list of the winners!

The 59th annual Grammy Awards will be comprised of two distinct shows. At 3 p.m. Eastern, Margaret Cho will host the Premiere Ceremony, during which the winners of roughly 70 categories will be announced. Then, at 8 p.m., CBS will air the main ceremony, hosted by James Corden, with the top awards handed out during that televised broadcast.

As Gossip Cop reported, this year’s Grammy nominations were announced in December, with Beyonce leading the pack. The superstar scored nine nods for her visual album Lemonade, including Album of the Year. Considered the Recording Academy’s biggest prize, Beyonce is competing for it with Adele (25), Justin Bieber (Purpose), Drake (Views), and Sturgill Simpson (A Sailor’s Guide To Earth).

Beyonce’s “Formation” is also among the nominees for the two other big categories, Song of the Year and Record of the Year. The other most-coveted award is Best New Artist. The contenders are Keslea Ballerini, The Chainsmokers, Chance The Rapper, Maren Morris, and Anderson Paak.

Gossip Cop will be updating the winners list live as each award is announced. In the meantime, check out all the categories below!
