This year at the AMAs, Miley Cyrus channeled her inner feline, Katy Perry offended people by dressing up as a geisha, and Avicii took home the award for “Favorite Artist, Electronic Dance Music.”

The EDM category started in 2012 with a win by David Guetta. This year’s nominees included Zedd, Avicii, Calvin Harris, and Daft Punk. With winners being calculated by a public poll and music sales, Avicii’s victory surprised approximately no one. The fan favorite made sure to thank his followers and celebrate the talents of his fellow nominees via Twitter.

With a grammy nomination for “Levels,” a #3 spot on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs, and the chart topper “Wake Me Up,” Avicii has certainly had a great year. Fellow nominee Zedd took to Twitter to congratulate the Swedish producer on his win.

While EDM still represents a relatively small percentage of popular music, the biggest stars are definitely gaining recognition in the public eye. Let us know your thoughts on Avicii’s win in the comments.
