Last night was the Billboard Music Awards. It was filled with a bunch of artists doing awesome things such as Kanye being censored, Taylor Swift winning just about every other award, Sam Smith doing a cool speech without speaking, and a bunch of other pop related events. Being that EDM is creeping more in more into the pop scene, there were a couple of awards that didn’t surprise anyone.
Calvin Harris won Top Dance / Electronic Artist (which shocked no one). He also showed off his PDA with Taylor Swift. I consider that a double win until a song about him comes out. The always impressive, Lindsey Stirling won Top Dance / Electronic Album with Shatter Me. Finally, as a huge surprise (sarcasm) Top Dance / Electronic Song went to DJ Snake and Lil Jon for “Turn Down for What.” All are deserving and congratulations to them!
