The Grammy Awards are set to kick off in just just a few hours, but the news is already starting to trickle out on Twitter. Skrillex has won the Grammy for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical (go figure) with his take on Benny Benassi and Gary Go’s “Cinema.” The release on Ultra Records admittedly took on a life of its own this year and appeared in countless sets and thousands of venues — even a Best Buy in New York. Skrillex is nominated for five Grammys, including Best New Artist. The show is set to begin at 8PM EST, and we’ll be bringing you all the EDM-related news as it happens.
Update: Make that two! Sonny has just secured the award for Best Dance Recording with “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites.” Will he go five for five?
Update 2: And just like that two turns into three. Best Dance/Electronica Album also goes to Skrillex for his album “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites.” That makes him three for three in categories to be announced ahead of the show, while Best New Artist
and Best Music Video will be announced later this evening.
Update 3: All good things must come to an end. It seems that Adele managed to steal away the award for Best Short-form Music Video for her song, “Rolling In The Deep.” It was arguably one of the most played acapellas of 2012 in EDM sets, so we’ll still chalk it up as a win for the dance music community.
