Paris Hilton has cemented her place in the dance music industry after winning the Women's Newcomer of the Year title at the NRJ DJ Awards in Monte Carlo, Monaco on Wednesday night (12Nov14).
The hotel heiress and reality TV regular, who scored a summer (14) residency at club Amnesia in the Spanish party paradise of Ibiza, recently came under fire from superstar Deadmau5, who blasted her DJ skills and branded her an "amateur" who has "no place" performing in the world's top clubs.
However, fans appear to disagree after voting her as the Women's Newcomer of the Year at the annual prizegiving.
The other big winners at the Monte Carlo ceremony included double honourees Avicii (Best International DJ and Best Dance/Electro Album) and Dutch teenager Martin Garrix (Best Live Performance and Best Club Hit).
Steve Aoki was awarded Best DJ/Producer of the Year, DJ Oriska walked away as Best Female DJ and David Guetta claimed the Best French Male DJ award, while Bob Sinclar was handed a lifetime achievement prize.
