Kids’ Choice Awards 2017: The EDM Takeover

Calvin Harris, Major Lazer, Skrillex Lead Nominations for Inaugural EDM Category


EDM has reached the children!

For the first time, Nickelodeon is adding a favorite DJ/EDM artist category to its Kids’ Choice Awards this year. Nominees in the category are Martin Garrix, Calvin Harris, Major Lazer, Skrillex, DJ Snake and Zedd.

The Chainsmokers, for one, are pretty pumped about being first-time nominees. “This has gotta be one of the coolest things ever!,” Alex Pall tells Billboard. “We grew up watching Nickelodeon religiously… Nick basically shaped who we are as goofballs, so to be nominated for favorite group and new artist is so cool. We may not be some boy band or whatever but it’s nice to know all the kids out there get down with us.”
