Beyonce Could Make History at Grammys 2017!
If you didn’t already know, the 35-year-old superstar was nominated for a whopping 9 nominations today.
For starters, Bey is the most nominated female artist in history with 62 nods to her name. The next closest would be Dolly Parton with 47! Beyonce has won 20 times thus far.
On Grammys night, Beyonce could become the most Grammy winning female artist in history! Currently, bluegrass singer Alison Krauss holds that record with 27 wins. If Beyonce wins 8 of her 9 nominations, she will surpass Alison and make history.
In addition, If Bey takes home all 9 awards, she will be the artist with the most wins in one night – of all time! Michael Jackson took home 8 awards back in 1984, and Santana also took home 8 awards in 2000, and those are the current records.
One more honor that Beyonce could achieve is the most Grammys won by a female in one night. Currently, Bey and Adele are tied at 6 for this record, so Beyonce would need to win at least 7 to win. Adele is currently nominated for five awards.
Best of luck to all of the nominees!
