American DJ duo The Chainsmokers, have beaten out Steve Aoki, Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, DNCE and even Tomorrowland, to win the Best World Stage award at this year’s MTV EMA‘s. The award comes after the duo decided to deliver their fans a more “live” experience during their world tour. Other notable previous winners include Linkin Park, Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, and just last year Martin Garrix.
The ‘Closer‘ duo has serenaded stadiums around the globe on its Memories…Do Not Open Tour. The win comes specifically for The Chainsmokers’ hour-long performance at for Isle of MTV, when the guys took the stage in Floriana, Malta earlier this year. While the production is overwhelming, there is undoubtedly plenty of jumping.
While the award is indeed prestigious, it’s nothing new to the New York-based duo. Just recently, their debut album, Memories…Do Not Open reached platinum status in the United States according to Billboard. In addition to this, their track, ‘Don’t Let Me Down‘ won a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. Drew and Alex were also nominated for a staggering 22 awards at this year’s Billboard Awards.
While the duo couldn’t be in attendance to accept their award, they expressed their gratitude in the tweet below.
