It looks like the 2023 Grammys will be a lot like the 2017 Grammys with another high-profile showdown between Adele and Beyoncé.
The pair face off again with their nominations in major categories: album of the year, song of the year and album of the year.
This time Beyoncé has nine nominations and Adele has seven.
Of course, there are other artists nominated in these categories, but there is history when it comes to self-proclaimed Bey superfan Adele and Bey herself.
Adele swept the top honors in 2017 with five awards in total, including album of the year for “25.”
Beyoncé won two, including best music video for “Formation” and best urban contemporary album for “Lemonade.”
It caused quite an uproar among the Beyhive, as Beyoncé’s fan base is known, and there were even complaints of possible racism in the vote.
Adele said in 2017 that she voted for Beyoncé and paid tribute to her during her album of the year acceptance speech.
The British singer called Beyoncé “the artist of my life” and her “Lemonade” album “so monumental.”
“It was so monumental and so thoughtful and so beautiful and soulful, and we all got to see another side of you that you don’t always let us see and we appreciate that,” Adele told Beyoncé from the stage. , who sat in the audience. “You are our light.”
It brought Bey, who was pregnant with her twins at the time, to tears.
Both women performed at the Grammys that year.
