The Chainsmokers were nominated for a staggering twenty-two categories at this year’s BBMAs, including multiple entries in more than one category. Over the course of the night, many awards were handed out although The Chainsmokers were only given four when all was said and done.
The Chainsmokers won for Top Dance/Electronic Artist, Top Hot 100 Song for “Closer,” Top Collaboration for “Closer,” and Top Dance/Electronic Song for, can you guess… “Closer.”
The Chainsmokers were also up for Top Dance/Electronic Album, even though both of their nominations were for EPs, technically, as were Kygo for Cloud Nine and Flume for Skin. However the winner in that category was none other than Lindsey Stirling, for Brave Enough.
In the Top Dance/Electronic Artist category, they bested other nominees Calvin Harris, Major Lazer, DJ Snake and Lindsey Stirling.
