 The incredible sisters Beyonce just signed to her label

Beyonce has filed papers in order to sign three teen singers. She’s  asking a New York judge to approve the five-year deals, a requirement because the girls are minors.

The contract covers LA-based sisters Chloe Bailey, 17, and Halle Bailey, 15. Beyonce’s manager came across a YouTube video of the duo belting out Pretty Hurts, a song from Beyonce’s last album. The video has over 10 million views.

Their father, Douglas, gushes in court papers, “We cannot think of a better person to help guide the girls,” adding his daughters “worship” Bey. Their $US1 million contract provides for up to six albums over five years. It awards Beyonce 15 per cent of the sisters’ gross earnings.

Beyonce also signed a third singer, 14-year-old Sophie Beem of New York, to her Parkwood Entertainment company. Sophie finished in the top 40 contestants on The X Factor in 2012.

The logies are tonight. Who will take out top honour?!

Tonights the night, with apparent Gold Logie front runners being new mums, Carrie Bickmore and Asher Keddie and last year’s winner Scott Cam.

The 57th Logie Awards will be held at Crown Casino tonight with around 500 celebs that will be  gracing the red carpet. Other Aussie entertainers nominated for the gold include, Hamish Blake, Andy Lee and Stephen Peacocke.

Bickmore, who will make her first public appearance since giving birth to daughter Evie in March, said she was a winner even if she didn’t take out the Gold Logie tonight.

Lee, Blake, Bickmore and Cam all gathered yesterday for a photo shoot at the Melbourne venue, “I kind of feel like I’ve already won this year,” Bickmore said.

Bickmore, who topped the best dressed list last year in a Paolo Sebastian gown, had her first fitting for this year’s gown with the designer while she was pregnant and the second, a week after she gave birth.

“Neither are times you want to have a dress fitting,” she says.
