The 59th Grammy Awards ceremony will take place at the Staple Center in Los Angeles on February 17, 2017 and will be broadcasted on CBS. As every year we find the usual suspects of the ceremony, but this year, hip hop artists have made a great place alongside Justin Bieber, Coldplay or Adele.

Drake could have been the big winner in 2016, but the Canadian was overtaken by Taylor Swift. The final podium was composed of the latter, accompanied by Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd. This year again, hip hop will have the opportunity to shine, since those with the most nominations are Rihanna, Drake, Kanye West and Beyoncé.


The biggest favorite of the year is Beyoncé since Queen B is nominated in 9 different categories including Album of the Year for “Lemonade” and Song of the Year with “Training.”
