Tiësto’s Grammy Acceptance Speech

Wow, thank you so much. Most people know me better as Tiësto, I guess, but Tijs Michiel Verwest is my real name. I made this remix last year spontaneously, to thank my fans. I made it for my birthday, that’s why it’s called the Tiësto’s Birthday remix, and John Legend heard it on my Facebook. I gave it away as a free download, without asking, and he liked it so much so he was like, let’s make it an official release, and that’s how this thing came together and now I’m receiving a Grammy for it, so unbelievable. Anything is possible nowadays, you know?
