Calvin Harris is once again representing electronic dance music on the global stage. This time holding the flag at the 2016 BBC Music Awards, the Scottish DJ/Producer is nominated for the prestigious ‘Artist of the Year’ accolade. The news coming only days after the top cash-king from dance music achieved over one billion views on YouTube from a single video – his collaboration with Rihanna for ” This Is What You Came For”.
The BBC Music Awards themselves will kick off next Monday on 12th December, with some of the music scene’s biggest acts taking their seats in front of the stage. Going up against the likes of Adele, Coldplay, Jess Glynne, and the late David Bowie, Calvin Harris has already done well to received the nod for a nomination. However, given his popularity throughout the United Kingdom, you wouldn’t be surprised if he were to come away with it, after his consistent success throughout 2016 in its entirety.
Set to be held at the ExCel London, there are only three categories in the competition, with ‘Radio 1’s ‘Live Lounge Performance of the Year’ and Radio 2’s ‘Album of the Year’ also primed to be presented. However, rest assured that come of the biggest acts in the scene at the moment will be performing throughout, such as John Legend, Zara Larsson, and many others.
