Each year keeps getting better and better for the Juno’s, and last nights show was certainly no exception!
Hosted by comedian Russell Peters, Nickelback ended up being the BIG winner, picking up 3 awards including Group and Album of the Year, in addition to winning the Juno Fan Choice Award. Performers included Sam Roberts, the incredible Sarah McLachlan, Simple Plan, and several collaborative performances like Bryan Adams and Kathleen Edwards for an acoustic version of his song Walk On By.
But Some of the most memorable moments weren’t what the artists sang… but what they said…
“Who knew I had boobs?” — Roots-rocker Kathleen Edwards on her revealing gown.
“Looks like somebody’s been eating for the weekend.” — Russell Peters to Mike Reno of Loverboy.
“It should be called Best Group We’ve Just Heard Of.” — Dave Hamelin of the decade-old band The Stills on their Best New Group award.
“Get enough sleep, take a bath now and then, don’t miss the airplane … If you’re a singer, learn how to dance. It keeps you skinny!” — Buffy Sainte-Marie’s career advice to young artists.
“She made me fall in love with the thing I thought I would never fall in love with in my life — and that was the fanny pack.” — Serena Ryder on Buffy Sainte-Marie.
