It is the first time that Beyoncé has been nominated in the dance category.
Beyoncé already won two Grammy Awards on Sunday, bringing her one step closer in her quest to be the most decorated artist in the show’s history.
During the pre-broadcast Grammy ceremony, Beyoncé won for the first time in the category of best electronic dance music recording for “Break My Soul”. She also won Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Plastic Off the Sofa.”
Beyoncé, who now has 30 awards, needs just two more wins to eclipse the record held by the late British-Hungarian director Georg Solti, who has 31 Grammy Awards. Solti has held the record since 1997.
It is the first time that Beyoncé has been nominated in the dance category. Her seventh studio project is nominated for best electronic dance music album.
Beyoncé entered Sunday’s ceremony as the top nominee, including album, song and record of the year. If she wins in any of those major categories, it will be her first since she received the song of the year award for “Single Ladies” in 2010.
Muni Long, nominee for best new artist, beat out Beyoncé in the category of best R&B performance for her song, “Hrs. and hours.”
