The main event at this year's awards ceremony takes place later tonight (February 15)

Skrillex has praised Jamie xx as he and Diplo picked up two Grammy awards for their Jack Ü project.

The duo were awarded with the award for Best Dance Recording for their collaboration with Justin Bieber, ‘Where Are Ü Now’.

Moments after collecting the award, they were announced as the victors in the category for Best Dance/Electronic Album for ‘Skrillex And Diplo Present Jack Ü’, beating competition that included Flying Lotus and The Chemical Brothers, as well as Jamie xx’s ‘In Colour’ record.


“Thanks again, it’s good to see you all,” Skrillex said as he and Diplo returned to the stage. His musical partner joked: “It’s been a long time.”

In their short acceptance speech, Skrillex singled the London producer out for praise from the rest of the nominations. “Shout out to Jamie xx for that amazing album,” he said.

Diplo followed that statement by saying: “It’s a great year for music, 2016. I’m so proud to be part of it.”

Other winners in the 58th Grammys so far include Taylor Swift for Best Pop Vocal Album and a joint victory with Kendrick Lamar for their ‘Bad Blood’ video, and The Weeknd for Best R&B Performance and Best Urban Contemporary Album.
