2010 Juno Awards

If you were a little preoccupied with today’s Record Store Day festivities, you might have missed the fact that 32 of this year’s Juno Awards (aka the Canadian Grammys) were handed out tonight (April 17) at a gala awards dinner in St. John’s, Newfoundland (that’s right folks, the Junos will start on the half hour this year). Amongst the early returns, some big surprises included the jazz crooning Michael Bublé beating out teen pop sensation Justin Bieber for the “Pop Album of the Year” award and Somali-Canadian rapper K’Naan winning the prize for “Artist of the Year” over such multi-platinum selling artists as Diana Krall and the aforementioned Bublé. The other thing worth noting about this year’s winners, is that the traditionally industry and sales driven Junos, recognized a number of independent artists including: Charles Spearin, Bell Orchestre, K’naan, Joel Plaskett and Arkells. Here’s a list of a few of the more notable 2010 Juno Awards Pre-Broadcast winners:
