Beyonce has won 20 Grammys in her career.

Speaking of Beyoncé at the 2004 Grammys - here, she is matching her six awards, in head-to-toe gold. Look no further than the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where the Mother Monster ranks among a who's-who of big stars who'll be performing at Sunday's 59th Annual Grammy Awards. From the Red Carpet will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest, as per usual - and this year, they're also unveiling E!

A year ago was brutal as the music industry lost numerous legends including Prince, George Michael, Sharon Jones, Leonard Cohen, Merle Haggard, Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest, Earth, Wind & Fire singer Maurice White and more. Best new artist contenders Kelsea Ballerini, the Chainsmokers, Chance the Rapper, Maren Morris, and Anderson Paak may become the evening's major success stories. Gallant's "Ology" and KING's "We are King" round out the field.

The late David Bowie is also among the nominees, with a nod for best alternative music album for his release "Blackstar". Other artists hoping to take home the hardware include Ariana Grande (two nominations), Justin Bieber (four nominations), Drake (seven nominations) and Demi Lovato (one nomination).

Preview of the 2017 Grammys

Obviously none of this can be taken too seriously, because the nine-time-nominated Beyonce trails with 11 percent for "Formation" and 10 percent for "Hold Up" in the Pop Solo Category - which is, like, blasphemy.

Corden, of course, has skyrocketed to mega-success over the past couple of years thanks to his viral-sensation Carpool Karaoke segment on The Late Late Show With James Corden.

The Grammys air Sunday on CBS and will also feature a tribute to Prince and George Michael, who both passed away in 2016.
