Move over, Stromae and Oscar and the Wolf! While both RBEA14 winners are back in the Artist of the Year race (and they're both obviously also major Best Live Act contenders), newcomers STUFF. and Woodie Smalls received the most votes from this year's professional jury. By far! Both acts secured seven nominations, including Artist of the Year, Best Album, Best Song and Best Live Act. They're both also up for the Chase Award, a brand new category celebrating the best in - yes, we all love to hate that word - urban music.
But STUFF. and Woodie Smalls aren't the only acts to secure an impressive number of nominations. Vuurwerk is on their heels with five; Locked Groove, LTGL, Netsky and Charlotte de Witte (formerly Raving George) all have four; and BRNS, Faisal, Kolombo, Lawrence Le Doux, Lost Frequencies and Stromae ended up with three.
