The Chainsmokers Win AMA For Favorite EDM Artist

The Chainsmokers won the AMA for Favorite EDM Artist.

The 2016 American Music Awards aired Sunday with a packed line up of stars like Ariana Grande, Zayn Malik, Justin Bieber, and more. The Chainsmokers represented the EDM world with a performance of their hit “Closer”, and it even featured a guest performance of the T-Mass remix from Travis Barker.

With what was probably no surprise to many, The Chainsmokers took home the AMA for Favorite Electronic Dance Music Artist. They went up against heavy-hitters Major Lazer and Calvin Harris, who won the award for Favorite EDM Artist last year.

But while The Chainsmokers took the EDM title, they took a loss in the Best New Artist category. The duo lost out on the award to Zayn Malik, former member of British group One Direction.
