Adele and Beyonce dominated the nominations list for the 59th Grammy Awards with their names in top categories including album, record, and song of the year.

Adele's Hello from her third studio album, make-up record, 25, and Beyonce's Formation from her sixth studio album, the politically charged visual album Lemonade, ruled the roost.
