Skrillex, Jay-Z, Black Keys Up for Woodie Awards

Electronic music producer (and recent Billboard cover star) Skrillex has made waves in the music world not just for his bone-rattling beats, but also for his distinctive side-swiped hairdo, which has inspired its own website as well as a hilarious tribute song. In honor of the dubstep king's multiple Grammy nods, we decided to see a few of pop's biggest names would look with a Skrillex makeover. Check out the pics and tell us who you think rocks the look best.

MTV has announced the nominees for the 2012 mtvU Woodie Awards. Skrillex, Kanye West and Jay-Z, The Black Keys, Mac Miller, M83, and Cloud Nothings are among those up for awards, which include Woodie of the Year, Performing Woodie, Best Video, Breaking Woodie, and the new dance-oriented category EDM Effect Woodie.

The Woodies, the MTV college-campus station's fan-voted annual awards show, will return to South by Southwest in Austin, Tex., and will extend to a daylong festival this year. The celebration, open to all SXSW badge holders, will kick off March 15 at 1 pm CT and will culminate in the awards ceremony.

Fans can stay involved by catching the "best of" the Woodies on MTV and mtvU on March 18 and voting for their favorite nominated artists on the Woodies website. Voting closes March 9, except for the Breaking Woodie category, which closes on March 15.
