Coming up this Sunday night, the 59th Grammy Awards will stage performances by top contenders including Chance the Rapper, Sturgill Simpson, and Adele, plus Daft Punk, Katy Perry, and many more.
Simpson is nominated for Album of the Year and Best Country Album for his genre-mixing "A Sailor's Guide to Earth." Chicago's Chance the Rapper is nominated for seven awards, including three for best rap song - all despite never releasing a traditional physical album. Many music critics imagine Beyoncé will be the story of the night. Her much-talked-about "Lemonade" album has her leading the pack with nine nominations. What are you looking forward to seeing at the Grammys? The CBS broadcast starts at 5 p.m. local time at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and will be hosted by James Corden.
