Maura / March 30, 2009

Canadian heshers Nickelback took home Album Of The Year, Group Of The Year, and the Juno Fan Choice Award at last night’s Juno Awards, which reward the best that Canadian music has to offer. (Gene Simmons is probably very, very excited right now.) Other winners: The sinewy Kardinal Offishall/Akon collab “Dangerous,” which won Single Of The Year; Alanis Morrissette, whose Flavors Of Entanglement picked up the Pop Album trophy; and the Stills, who brought home New Group of the Year and the Alternative Album award.
