by

Today, while we were all still in a deep slumber, Meghan Trainor was bright eyed and Bushy tailed to announce the 2017 Grammy nominees for CBS This Morning. Those given a golden ticket shot to go home with a Grammy weren’t a total surprise, but with Beyonce leading the pack with nine nominations, we wouldn’t be surprised if she completely slayed the Feb. 12th award show, followed by Rihanna, and Drake with eight, and Chance The Rapper with seven nominations.
