David Guetta with partner Jessica Ledon at the red carpet arrivals for the 66th Annual Grammy Awards.

Guetta attended the 2024 Grammy ceremony for his two nominations in the Best Pop Dance Recording category, "Baby Don't Hurt Me (with Anne-Marie and Coi Leray) and "One in a Million" (with Bebe Rexha).

The 56-year-old French-born DJ has been the go-to person for remixes and dance collaborations since his debut album Just A Little More Love in 2002. He has had dance chart hits with everyone from Fergie to Nicki Minaj, Usher and the above-mentioned Rexha, most notably with 2022's "I'm Good (Blue)" -- that collab remains the second longest-running chart-topping song on the US Dance/Electronic chart.

As a 13-time Grammy nominee, Guetta has won two: in 2010 for "When Love Takes Over" (Electro Extended Remix) and in 2011 with "Revolver" (featuring Afrojack), both for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical.
