Beyoncé leads the 2017 Grammy Awards pack with nine nominations, while flying the flag for Australia will be Sia, Flume and Keith Urban.

Queen Bey has now racked up a record-breaking 62 nominations over the course of her career and is in the running for both best album with Lemonade and record of the year (Formation).

However, fellow pop superstars Drake, Rihanna and Kanye West were not far behind, with each picking up eight nominations apiece, while the surprise package was Chance The Rapper, who earned seven nods.

The Australian contingent is led by country star Keith Urban, who is nominated in three categories: Ripcord is up for best country album, while Blue Ain’t Your Colour is a contender in both the best country song and best country solo performance categories.

Sia picked up two nominations – best pop vocal album This Is Acting and best pop duo performance for her Sean Paul collaboration Cheap Thrills – as did Flume, who received nods for both his album Skin (best dance/electronic album) and the single Never Be Like You (best dance recording).
