With starstudded line-ups across the board, the final pickings looked almost to tense to call with artists like ZeddMarshmello, and music legend Calvin Harris up against DrakePost MaloneMaroon 5 and more.

But even the outstanding talent could not keep both Zedd and Marshmello from picking up two awards each and The Chainsmokers earning themselves and iHeartRadio award as well.

Marshmello, who as of late is consistently delivering the goods, beat strong competition from the likes of Calvin Harris, The Chainsmokers, Zedd, and Kygo to win Dance Artist of the Year. The masked party-popping DJ also took the award for Best New Pop Artist. Elsewhere, influential music producer Zedd won Song of the Year with his smash-hit track ‘The Middle‘ with Maren Morris and Grey which also went and took home Dance Song of the Year.
