The nominees for the 59th Grammy Awards were announced this morning [Dec. 6], with last year’s Best New Artist winner Meghan Trainor unveiling the contestants for the marquee categories live on CBS, which you can stream right here, while the rest of this year’s list was rolled out later on the official Grammy website.

Of course, this year’s awards mark the first time in the show’s history that the Recording Academy has made streaming only recordings eligible for Grammy consideration. The announcement meant that Chance the Rapper‘s incredible Coloring Book mixtape would be in the running for a nomination. “We’ll celebrate the Grammys’ recognition of grass-roots independent artists and this new way of releasing music by nominating me. We’ll fucking go crazy for, like, two days straight,” Chance previously told Billboard about how he would react to a nomination. Unfortunately for Frank Oceans fans, the artist’s independently released Blonde was not submitted by his team for consideration.

The field is led by Beyoncé with 9 nominations, followed by similarly huge stars Drake, Rihanna and Kanye West (8 each). But of course, with 84 categories in all, the Grammys are always about far more than just the biggest names. Check all the General and Pop Field nominees below and catch the ceremony when it goes down Feb. 12 at L.A.’s Staples Center with host James Corden on CBS.
