On Thursday, iHeartRadio hosted their 2019 awards show. This year’s ceremony made it very clear that EDM is still fully entrenched in today’s pop culture. Marshmello and Zedd won some of the highest honors in the show, beating out some of the biggest names in music.

Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey’s hit “The Middle” won Song of the Year beating out heavyweight acts like Drake, Ed Sheeran, Post Malone, Cardi B and Maroon 5. The same song would then go on to win the award for Dance Song of the Year, beating out two nominated Marshmello tracks. “The Middle” was also nominated for Best Collaboration of the Year but lost out to Cardi B and Bruno Mars.

On the other hand, Marshmello won big, taking home the award for Best New Pop Artist over rising stars NF, MAX, Lauv, and Bazzi. The Fortnite sensation would also go on to win Best Dance Artist over Calvin Harris, Kygo, The Chainsmokers, and Zedd.
