It's no big surprise to see Avicii, Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding, and Daft Punk nominated for this type of award. However, it's a bit shocking to see TJR nominated for the award. His song "Funky Vodka" was used by Pitbull as the beat for "Don't Stop The Party." "Funky Vodka" was at #1 on the Beatport Top 100 at one point, and Pitbull and his management realized the potential the instrumental had as the backing track for a pop song.
