Grammys: Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson and More Artists React to Scoring Nominations
"My heart is falling out of my ass."
The music industry was up and at 'em early Tuesday morning, as the 2017 Grammy nominations were revealed, beginning with the "Big Four" unveiling on CBS This Morning.
Beyonce leads the pack with nine nominations, with Drake, Kanye West, and Rihanna not far behind with eight each.
But while those may not come as too much of a surprise, some of the year's breakouts, like Maren Morris and The Chainsmokers, were thrilled to receive their first Grammy nods and took to Twitter to express their excitement.
