Michael Bublé wins big at Junos while Justin Bieber is shut out

April 19, 2010 | 12:07 pm

Michael Buble Juno Awards At this weekend's Juno Awards -- the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys -- singer-songwriter Michael Bublé dominated, winning four of his six nominations, including single of the year for "Haven't Met You Yet" and the coveted June for album of the year for "Crazy Love." Among those Buble bested for that top honor was teen singing sensation Justin Bieber, who contended for his debut disc, "My World." Bublé also beat Bieber for the pop-album prize, and the veteran crooner was the fan choice for the second time in two years, having won that title in 2008 on his third try.

Although Bieber was not contending for that Juno, he was expected to win the new artist award. However, Drake, a TV star turned rapper with whom he had dueted earlier in the evening on his hit "Baby," edged out Bieber for that Juno. Drake also won best rap recording for "So Far Gone." Another rapper, K'Naan, took home artist of the year and songwriter.

The non-telecast portion of the Junos on Saturday night saw the wealth spread around as each of the 32 awards handed out went to a different winner. As with the Grammys, the emphasis on the two-hour CTV telecast Sunday was performances rather than plaudits. Only seven of the key awards were handed out during the kudocast.

The Junos returned to St. John's, the capital of Canada's youngest province, Newfoundland, for the first time since 2002. In the intervening years, this celebration of English-language Canadian music has been held in six of the other nine provinces. The awards are slated to return to their traditional home of Toronto next year.
