Juno Awards 2012: Feist, Drake And Justin Bieber Win Big
The 2012 Juno Awards, Canada’s version of The Grammys, took place last night, and Feist was the big winner of the evening, taking home the award for Artist Of The Year and Adult Alternative Album Of The Year for Metals. Holiday crooner Michael Buble’s Christmas was awarded Album Of The Year, and Drake nabbed Rap Recording Of The Year for Take Care. As Canada is Justin Bieber’s home turf, it was only natural that the “Boyfriend” singer walk away with Juno Fan Choice. (Since he was busy getting slimed at the Kids Choice Awards, Bieber accepted his award via video.) Check out the full list of winners below.
