SKRILLEX SCORES 5 GRAMMY NOMINATIONS...
Despite the chorus of disbelievers, there's no doubt 2011 has been good to Skrillex. Now the superstar has bagged himself 5 Grammy nominations including 'Best New Artist'.
Skrillex is up against Bon Iver, Nicki Minaj, The Band Perry and J. Cole – a mixed bunch if ever there was one. Usually dance music is neatly confined to the Best Dance Recording category, so this is a significant moment if you count these kinds of moments as significant.
Skrillex does also appear in the Best Dance Recordings nominees, alongside friend deadmau5. Robyn’s Call Your Girlfriend is in there breaking up the boys’ club as well.
