Beyonce Got A Lot Of Grammy Nominations

December 6, 2016 / Posted by:

The nominations for the 59th Grammy Awards were announced this morning, and to the shock of absolutely no one except maybe a Mormon granny who’s been on a quilting retreat for the past 12 months, both Beyonce and Adele got a lot of nominations. Beyonce got 9 and Adele got 5. Oh, and some other people got nominated for awards too. For example, human UTIs The Chainsmokers got a nomination for Best New Artist. The Grammys are in February, which means The Chainsmokers only have two months to get matching custom-made suits fitted with a vape holder, flask holster, coke pocket, and automatic crotch mister connected to a colostomy bag filled with Diesel cologne.

I want to make a joke about how Beyonce probably shouldn’t expect Adele to repeat that tender moment on Grammys night since they’ll both be too busy shooting sharpened eye-daggers at each other every time one of the categories they’re nominated in comes up. But I highly doubt that’s how it’s going to go.  The opposite of that will probably happen. They’ll probably spend the whole night trying to pawn their awards off on each other, because the muscles in their forearms are probably so exhausted from holding so many trophies over the years. “No, I insist – you go get this one. I’ve got far too many at home.

All the nominations are here, but a lot are after the cut. If your name is Taylor Swift, you might want to skip the past the Best Rap/Sung Performance category unless you want rage by reading that Kanye West got a nomination for Famous.
