56th Grammy Awards aired tonight at 8pm on CBS, there are several anticipating performances scheduled such as the talented couple Beyonce & Jay Z singing “ Drunk in Love". Jay Z is leading with nine Grammy Nominations this year. Following behind Jay Z nominations are Kendrick Lamar and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis tied with seven. Drake also brought in five nominations. Kanye along with Jay Z has boycotted the Awards ceremony for many years stated that the Grammy awards were bias to the hip hop music  artists in the industry. I would say that the Grammy Awards has taken their boycotting serious due to the highest nominated musicians being Hip Hop artists this year.
