Machine Gun Kelly Wins Big At MtvU Woodie Awards

The mtvU Woodie Awards have been announced, and, ahead of MTV's 30-minute special this Sunday (March, 17), Machine Gun Kelly was named Woodie of The Year in the multi-genre ceremony.

"As many dark times that we've had, the fans have always shown me the light and I'm ready to take on the world with them," Machine Gun Kelly - a keen fan of 50 Shades of Grey - said after winning Woodie of the Year. "No quote can describe my gratitude. F---ing thank you! Lace up." He won Breaking Woodie last year, so this is just a natural progression, right? The Breaking Woodie award THIS YEAR went to rapper and Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt, who won over Alt-J, The Lumineers, Dillon Francis, and others. His track Chum has been one of the most popular of 2012. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - history makers with their No. 1 single Thrift Shop - got the Branching Out Woodie, beating out Amanda Palmer, Avicii, Deadmau5, Jack White and The XX.

Amongst the performers are Zedd, who, before missing out on the Breaking Woodie, said: "I am thrilled to be performing at the 2013 Woodies!," said Zedd. "As a nominee I'm both thankful and excited for the opportunity and can't wait to unveil my set for the fans." Performances from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Twenty One Pilots, and a surprise visit from T.I are the other reasons to tune in on Sunday to see how it all unfolded.
