"'Warrior' is the first time that I worked with either Mark Foster or Kimbra," said A-Trak. "We worked on the song in something like a dozen cities, I'm so thankful to the fans for giving us this award and also a huge shout out to the video directors Daniels. Thanks!"

"I'm happy to win this Woodie because this is one the fans pick and that's what matters most!" said Danny Brown.

Not to be outdone, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis kept spirits high with their chart-topping hit "Thrift Shop," just before surprise guest Schoolboy Q joined them for "White Walls." The show was officially closed by German EDM producer/DJ/songwriter Zedd.
