Effectively the Canadian equivalent of the BRITs, the Juno Awards always manages to surprise.
This year proved to be no exception. Returning last night (March 30th) big winners included Arcade Fire, who scooped both Album Of The Year and Alternative Album Of The Year.
Accepting their award via video link in South America, Arcade Fire were joined on the winners podium by the likes of Tegan & Sara, Serena Ryder and more.
Justin Bieber won the Fan's Choice Award at the Junos, but failed to turn up. Boos rang out around the arena, with the award instead being collected by members of Canada's Olympic women's curling team. (via BBC)
Elsewhere, controversial hip hop production unit A Tribe Called Red won Breakthrough Group Of The Year. The trio match First Nations influences with electronic music, and recently crafted a beat for Angel Haze.
