GRAMMY Nominations 2017: Adele and Beyonce go head to head for biggest awards

GRAMMY nominations 2017
GRAMMY nominations 2017 revealed 06:15

Meghan Trainor appeared on “CBS This Morning” to announce the nominees for the biggest categories at the 2017 GRAMMY Awards on Tuesday. Adele and Beyonce dominated the categories: They were both up for three of the four big awards. 

Trainor stayed mum on GRAMMY predictions, admitted to “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King that she’s now in love and waved to her boyfriend, Daryl Sabara, in the green room. The singer said her boyfriend is also a musician and that they write songs together. 

When King asked Trainor if she had any predictions for Best New Artist, the singer played coy and said, “That’s not fair! I know these people ... I can’t.”
