Really happy that City and Colour, KEN mode and Arkells won something. I think it's hilarious Michael Buble's Christmas record managed to win Album of the Year. And Hedley should not have beaten Marianas Trench.

Her hair looks like a female version of Donald Trump's.

Good performance though.

If giving a Christmas album your top prize doesn't scream desperation, I don't know what does.

Happy that Hedley won. Other than that, Junos are always the most boring award show.

It's like the Grammys but actually celebrating music instead of sales.

There was absolutely nothing in that performance that Deadmau5 did that no other DJ couldn't do

"In almost all of the main general categories, such as Album of the Year or Artist of the Year, nominees are determined by sales during the qualifying period. "

That is from the Juno's website and wikipedia page.

Well, that's awkward.
The quality level of Juno award winners is much better than the Grammys, that's for sure.

The keyword is qualifying... To get a nod, your album has to have some sort of sales figures and it's only specific categories. Not all.

Is Hedley really that big? I've heard them a few times, but I don't like any of their stuff as much as Marianas Trench.
