The Billboard Music Awards Winner for ‘Best Dance LP’ Might Surprise You

On Sunday, the 2015 Billboard Music Awards took over the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for a night that included a few nods to dance music’s major stars. Calvin Harris walked away with the statuette for ‘Top Dance/Electronic Artist,’ David Guetta hit the stage with Nicki Minaj to do “Hey Mama,” and DJ Snake & Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” took the ‘Top Dance/Electronic Song’ honor.

However, the night’s ‘Top Dance/Electronic Album’ win didn’t land with a superstar DJ. In a field that included blockbuster LPs from Avicii and Calvin Harris, plus Disclosure’s Settle and Skrillex’s Recess, it was Lindsey Stirling, 28-year-old violinist and composer, who won for her second album Shatter Me.

Stirling was first noticed from her YouTube videos, where she invented various, nymphish characters – dead, alive and make-believe – to help illustrate her dubstep-driven string arrangements. Since then, she’s gained over six million video subscribers and worked with the likes of Robert Delong, Silas and Kill Paris.

You can watch Stirling’s other starring moment from last night below, when she performed alongside Wiz Khalifa, acting as his “See You Again” string section with help from pianist-vocalist Charlie Puth.
