Last night (April 21), Canada held its annual JUNO Awards, its version of the Grammys, and Mumford and Sons, Grimes, Metric and Leonard Cohen were among the artists to pick up prizes. It was also a big night for Carly Rae Jepsen — who bagged Album, Pop Album and Song of the Year — and Justin Bieber, who didn’t show up (he was probably dealing with tigers or gas masks or something) but snagged his third straight Fans’ Choice award.

The Mumfords, you may be thinking, hail from England, not Canada, but theirs was a win for Best International Album, so it all checks out. Proper Canadians Metric, meanwhile, bagged Alternative Album of the Year, winning with ‘Synthetica,’ while Grimes’ ‘Visions’ landed her Electronic Album of the Year.

Cohen, the indefatigable poet and crooner who still puts on three-hour shows, won Artist of the Year, and given his continued ability to sell out shows across the country and rock the coolest suit-and-hat combo this side of Justin Timberlake, the win seems justified.
