It's that time of the year again, folks! The 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards are back on April 3--and with a bunch of brand new categories. 

Airing on TBS, TNT and TruTV at 8:00 p.m., the star-studded event is sure to be one to remember. One of the newest categories that is being introduced this year is "Dance Artist Of The Year". It features David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Skrillex & Diplo, Major Lazer and Zedd.

Each of these artists being something unique and exciting to the dance world, so it's about time they get their rightful recognition. Let's take a closer look at their amazing work.


Calvin Harris

Not only is he a looker, but Calvin Harris has loads of talent, too. With his music dominating every major chart you can think of, it should come as no surprise that he's also currently holding the title for being the highest paid EDM DJ in the entire world. According to Forbes's Electronic Cash Kings list, Calvin racked in $66 Million last year from his music. You better work, Calvin!


David Guetta

This Frenchman has stole the hearts--and the dance moves--of EDM lovers not only in the states, but all over the globe. His music features some of the best collaborations in the business right now. From Nicki Minaj, to Sia, Fetty Wap and more, many other A-list artists jump at the chance to work with Monsieur Guetta. Why? Because he's the real deal, and everyone who's a fan out his music knows this. 


Major Lazer

Another top contender in our new EDM category is the one and only Major Lazer. This group has been blessing the world with timeless hits since it was found by Diplo and Switch back in 2008. Even though Switch is no longer with the group, they still get the party bumping with their high energy hits. The different walks of life that some members come from, make for a great blend of different types of musical flavors in their EDM work, too.


Skrillex & Diplo

Also known as Jack Ü, the duo joined forces for their joint debut album, Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü. Though they still do their own things, the two came together for a masterpiece. Think of them as the Drake and Future of their genre, and their past album as the EDM version of What A Time To Be Alive.



Last but certainly not least, Zedd is also a icon in the dance world, in his own right. He first began to gain much popularity with his single "Clarity." From there, his fanbase and influence grew. And he's not slowing down anytime soon, either. He's currently working on some more great music with some other superstars, and they're set to drop very soon. Be on the lookout for Mr. Zedd.
