David Guetta Wins Top EDM Artist at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards

EDM categories were new to the 2013 Billboard Music Awards this year, so it seems totally fitting that David Guetta took home the prize for Top EDM Artist.

The French DJ gave a very endearing acceptance speech saying that when he grew up in Paris (with no Internet, mind you!) he was only connected to the American music scene via printed magazines — a scenario not many of his fans can connect to!

About four years ago, when Guetta was told EDM was going to be the next  big thing, he said he was flattered, but thought the people who said that were absolutely nuts. He made sure to add, “Imagine how I feel today.” We’re right there with ya, David!

The Top EDM Artist nominees read like a who’s who of the music genre with artists like Calvin Harris, deadmau5, Skrillex and Swedish House Mafia all in the running for the award.

Today Guetta, the seasoned EDM veteran, seemed to have reached the pinnacle of his career.
