The AMAs (American Music Awards) announced their nominations this morning, and the nominees for Favorite EDM Artist come as no surprise. Avicii, Calvin Harris, and Zedd are the three nominees for the award. The three stars might be the most well-known dance music producers in the United States, as each of them have had songs receive heavy play on Top 40 radio during 2014. Like most award shows, the AMAs are a popularity contest. Consequently, it makes sense that Avicii, Harris, and Zedd are nominated for Favorite EDM Artist.
Avicii, Harris, and Zedd were all nominated for the same award at the 2013 AMAs. Avicii ended up taking home the trophy.
