It is obvious that Avicii will remain forever in our hearts. Without any doubt, his music will live on. Proof of that is his constant award nominations. This week, Avicii received several posthumous nominations for the Billboard Music Awards, set to take place next month.
The Swedish producer who sadly passed away in April 2018 left some of the greatest tracks in EDM history. More than two years later, the producer is recognized in both Top Dance/Electronic Artist and Top Dance/Electronic Album categories. Although Avicii’s music was crème de la crème, there are other amazing nominees like The Chainsmokers, DJ Snake, Illenium, Marshmello, and more.
Let’s remember that Avicii’s posthumous album TIM saw the light in 2019. Besides, last year, the Swedish Grammis (also known as Grammisgalan) dedicated a tribute video for Avicii that moved everyone. In addition, TIM featured a number of originals and collaborations ‘SOS’ with Aloe Blacc, ‘Tough Love’ with Agnes, Vargas & Lagola, ‘Heaven’ with Chris Martin. Also emotional tracks like ‘Hold The Line’ with A R I Z O N A, or ‘Heart Upon My Sleeve’ with Imagine Dragons, and many more.
Avicii will be part of the 2020 Billboard Music Awards. Besides, we already know that Kelly Clarkson will host the show. Moreover, the ceremony will take place live at The Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday, October 14th at 8:00 PM ET on NBC.
