Grammy Face-Off: Adele Vs. Beyonce

It will be a diva duel at the 59th annual Grammy Awards: queen bee Beyonce is headed for a face-off with British pop superstar Adele in three of the four top categories. (Full list of nominees here.) Meghan Trainor, the 2016 best new artist recipient, announced the noms on Tuesday’s “CBS This Morning.” Beyonce’s widely praised million-selling collection “Lemonade” is pitted against Adele’s 10 million-seller “25” in the Album of the Year category. Beyonce’s politically-edged hit “Formation” (written by Beyonce, Khalif Brown, Asheton Hogan and Michael L. Williams II) and Adele’s ubiquitous single “Hello” (penned by Adele and Greg Kurstin) will compete for honors as Song of the Year, a writer’s award, and Record of the Year, awarded to artist, producers, engineers and mixers.
