But a few notes: I have to admit, I have not yet heard some of the other nominees yet, especially as most have not yet played Miami, but often times from previous years we have seen the DJ/Producer get shafted for the normal POP REMIX flair because of name recognition. Lets hope things happen diferrently this year.

Good Luck Tijs (Tiesto's real name)! that statue will look great in your new Miami apartment!
