Avicii, Deadmau5 & ZHU Highlight 2015 Grammy Nominees
The nominees for the 2015 Grammys were announced today. Avicii and DJ Snake each received nominations in general music categories. Also, the "Best Dance Recording" and "Best Dance/Electronic Album" categories feature some pleasant surprises, including Aphex Twin, Mat Zo, and ZHU. We love that the Grammys acknowledged talented producers rather than just the most popular producers.
Avicii's collaboration with Coldplay on "A Sky Full of Stars" received a nomination for "Best Pop Duo/Group Performance." Zedd announced the nominees for the categories via Twitter.
DJ Snake is nominated for "Best Music Video" thanks to his ridiculous video for "Turn Down For What."
