Feist Wins Artist of the Year at Juno Awards
Feist continued her dominance of the Juno Awards, Canada's equivalent of the Grammy Awards. During the telecast on Sunday night (April 1), the singer won her 11th career Juno, for Artist of the Year. At the gala dinner the night before, she won two Junos, for Adult Alternative Album of the Year Music ('Metals') and DVD of the Year ('Look What the Light Did Now').
"I'm just in shock. ... I guess all I can really do is try to express some genuine gratitude," Feist said from the podium. "I can't believe I'm standing here." The other nominees in the Artist of the Year category were Drake, Deadmau5, Michael Buble and City and Colour. Buble, however, won Album of the Year for 'Christmas,' and Justin Bieber took home the Fan Choice award. Check out all the nominees and winners here.
The event, which took place at the Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, was hosted by Montreal native William Shatner and featured performances by Feist, Deadmau5 and Sarah McLachlan, who sang with Blue Rodeo.
