EDM has eked out more of the mainstream spotlight over the past decade, and each year's Grammy Awards serve as a reminder. This year, both Diplo and Justice took home Grammys among a pool of artists spanning rock, hip-hop, pop and comedy.

Diplo (real name Thomas Wesley Pentz Jr.) received an award in the category of Best Dance Recording for "Electricity" featuring Dua Lipa as one half of Silk City. Disclosure, Above & Beyond, FISHER and Porter Robinson's Virtual Self project were also nominated for the same award.

The Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Album was awarded to Justice for last year's Woman Worldwide. The French blog house duo beat out John Hopkins, Sofi Tukker, SOPHIE and TOKiMONSTA for the honor.

Outside of dance music, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Drake and Childish Gambino took home Grammys. Perhaps the most notable upset of this year's ceremony was Cardi B being awarded for Invasion of Privacy in the Album of the Year category. It marked the first time a female artist was chosen for the honor.
