Grammys Grammy Awards Skrillex Chemical Brothers Deadmau5 dance music entertainment news 13579086

Our two music awards editors -- Darrin Dortch and David Schnelwar -- disagree on the winner of Best Dance/Electronica Album at this Sunday's Grammys. 

“Wonderland” - Steve Aoki
“Don’t Think” - The Chemical Brothers
“>Album Title Goes Here<” - Deadmau5
“Fire & Ice” - Kaskade
“Bangarang” - Skrillex -- Darrin, David

Darrin's analysis
Skrillex won three Grammys last year and is the only act nominated in both dance field categories this year. This is a no-brainer.

David's analysis
Last year, Deadmau5 became the first EDM artist to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone.

The Chemical Brothers won this category twice: “Push The Button” (2005) and “We Are The Night” (2007). 

In spite of this, Skrillex is the frontrunner to win Best Dance/Electronic Album because he is the only contender also nominated for Best Dance Recording.
