Dance music goes mainstream in the USA. Good for the UK scene?

Dance music is on the rise in the huge American market over 10 years after the UK.  Not only is the Electronic Daisy Carnival the biggest dance in the world (based now in Las Vegas) but it has been announced that The Grammys (the US equivalent of the Brits) will be hosting a dance music related segment for the first time.  Long ignored as a poor spectacle for the show acts like David Guetta national appeal could be ignored no longer.  Will this prove good for the UK?  Dance music is long past its peak and no longer commands the media attention it once did.  Certainly our UK producer and DJs could do well in the USA but also new producers making new sounds in America could give the scene over here a new lease of life.  I hope so.
