Grammy Nominations: Full list of nominees for 59th annual awards

Adele and Beyonce ruled the nominations for the 59th Grammy Awards' top categories with album, record, and song of the year noms. 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.

Meghan Trainor, who won best new artist at last year's Grammys, announced the four general field categories (record of the year, album of the year, song of the year, and best new artist) for the 2017 Grammys live on "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. ET. The Recording Academy will announce the nominees of all 84 categories at 8:45 a.m. ET.

The 59th Annual Grammys will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 12, at 8 p.m. ET., on CBS.
