EDM superstar (and Calvin Klein underwear model) Calvin Harris took home the award for “Best EDM Artist” at the 2015 AMAs last night. This comes after his loss to Martin Garrix for the same category at the European Music Awards, but it seems like he definitely made up for it with this win.
This year’s AMAs crowned Calvin Harris as the King of EDM over fellow nominees David Guetta and Zedd.
Harris hasn’t released an album since Motion came out in late 2014, so it’s a little surprising to see that he took home the award considering Zedd had a big year with his 2015 album, True Colors. However, songs such as “Summer”, “Blame” and “How Deep Is Your Love” kept Harris up at the charts for 2015 and proved that he’s worthy of the award.
All in all, it was a good night for EDM artists. Other winners included Jack Ü and Justin Bieber for their collaboration on their hit single “Where Are Ü Now,” which dominated the charts.
Congratulations to Calvin Harris for his big win and congrats to all the other winners at this year’s American Music Awards!
