VMAs Round-Up: The Winners and Losers of Dance Music

What a great feeling it is to see this great genre make its way into the world of popular music and media. Just two years ago at the 2015 VMA’s, a category for any kind of electronic music recognition was nonexistent. The addition of “Best Electronic Video” in 2016 opened doors of recognition to DJs and producers that we have never seen before at this MTV award show. Last night’s show included the most electronic nominations that this award show has ever seen. From “Best Collaboration” to “Best Dance”, we had the chance to root for our favorite DJ’s as they took their chances on MTV’s red carpet.

So without further ado, we present to you the EDM Video Music Award Round-up.
