Calvin Harris & the Chainsmokers Show the VMAs How Things Are Done

The VMAs may have been kind of lame this year, but at least there were a few EDM artists showing everybody how things are done. Of course, the Chainsmokers have been the talk of the year, but Calvin Harris also hit it big this time around.

Calvin Harris couldn’t be there in person, but he sure was thrilled over his awards.

Harris wound up taking home two awards, one for Best Male Video and one for Best Electronic Video. Best Male Video was awarded for his collaboration with Rihanna, “This Is What You Came For,” while award number two went to his song “How Deep is Your Love.”

When accepting his award for Best Male Video, Harris said, “I need to thank Rihanna from the bottom of my heart. You’re a superstar. Every time we worked together, you bring something so magical to the project, so thank you.”


Oddly enough, he didn’t thank his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift, who has a writing credit on the song. In fact, Swift wasn’t even at the VMAs this year. Between Kanye West getting a full four minutes to do whatever he wanted and Calvin Harris being a sure-winner (even though he was there via video, not in person), perhaps she got scared off this time around.
