Congratulations go out to The Chainsmokers for winning the Top Dance/Electronic Artist Award, Top Dance/Electronic Album, and Top Dance/Electronic Song for “Something Just Like This” featuring Cold Play at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.

Alex Pall and Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers along with Halsey decided to honor Avicii before presenting the Top Hot 100 song of 2018 which, no surprise was “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi.

“Avicii was an artist who inspired so many in so many ways and meant so much to us and the EDM community.”

Added Halsey:  “Everyone who worked with him would say that he was such a joy and that makes this tragedy all the more painful. It’s a reminder to all of us to be there and support and love our friends and family members who may be struggling with mental illness.”

After Mustard and Nick Jonas presented them with their award, in their acceptance speech the DJ duo continued to honor Avicii by dedicating their award to him.

“We wanna dedicate this award to Avicii. … He is someone who made us believe that this is something we could do with our lives. Inspired all of us. Influenced our music and influence pop music in general. He will be missed and I hope he’s found peace.”
