2013 Juno Awards – winners

It was a patriotic party on the Prairies as top Canadian talent took to the stage and the red carpet for Canada’s biggest night in music, THE 2013 JUNO AWARDS. CTV’s blockbuster broadcast rocked Regina’s Brandt Centre, with epic performances, tributes to Canadian music legends, and JUNO Awards handed out in seven categories.

Host and Canadian musical icon Michael Bublé kicked off the night’s festivities with a pre-taped segment that showcased his trademark humour and charisma, and featured him seeking advice from celebrity friends such as Kelly Ripa, Russell Peters, Gerard Butler and Dr. Phil. Bublé hit all the right notes throughout the evening’s festivities, including his performance of “It’s A Beautiful Day,” the first single of his new studio album TO BE LOVED, which is released in Canada tomorrow.

It was never a question of maybe. Carly Rae Jepsen was the evening’s big winner with three JUNO Awards. Having already picked up the JUNO Award for Pop Album of the Year (sponsored by TD) at the JUNO Gala Dinner & Awards on Saturday, she added two more statuettes to her collection during the broadcast: the JUNO Award for Album of the Year (sponsored by Music Canada) for KISS and Single of the Year for “Call Me Maybe.” She also graced the stage to perform a medley featuring the catchy pop song, which dominated airwaves and social media over the last year.

Internationally acclaimed songwriter Leonard Cohen was a double winner. He was honoured with the JUNO Award for Songwriter of the Year (sponsored by SiriusXM Canada) at the broadcast, after winning the award for Artist of the Year at the JUNO Gala Dinner & Awards on Saturday night. While Cohen was not able to attend to accept his award, the enthusiastic crowd saluted the icon with their heartfelt applause.Serena Ryder won the JUNO Award for Adult Alternative Album of the Year and also serenaded the audience with her single “Stompa,” only to return to the stage a second time for a rocking collaboration with Billy Talent on their single “Stand Up And Run.”

Other big winners at this year’s broadcast were Monster Truck, who picked up the JUNO Award for Breakthrough Group of the Year (sponsored by FACTOR and Radio Starmaker Fund), Marianas Trench, who garnered Group of the Year honours and also performed a medley of their songs “Fallout” and “Stutter” during the show, and Justin Bieber, who won the JUNO Fan Choice Award for the third year in a row. While Bieber was unable to attend, his victory was a testament to Canadians’ love for the global pop star.

One of the most memorable moments of the night was Anne Murray ushering fellow iconic singersongwriter k.d. lang into
the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. A video tribute to lang featured testimonial from the likes of Shania Twain, Tony Bennett and Leonard Cohen. Lang, an eight-time JUNO Award winner, later brought the Brandt Centre house down with her performance of “Sing It Loud.”

The venue was electrified when lead singer Emily Haines took the stage with Metric to perform their single “Synthetica.” The band’s album SYNTHETICA garnered three awards during the JUNO Gala Dinner & Awards on Saturday. Metric won Alternative Album of the Year (sponsored by Long & McQuade), band member James Shaw took home Jack Richardson Producer of the Year (sponsored by Slaight Music), and art director Justin Broadbent won Recording Package of the Year.

Additional JUNO Award nominee performances at the star-studded CTV broadcast included “Feeling Good” by Saskatchewan rockers The Sheepdogs and “Robotic” by singer-songwriter Hannah Georges.

Michael Bublé paid tribute to the late Rita MacNeil at the end of the show, garnering a stirring ovation from the crowd. In an unforgettable closing moment, Bublé bid farewell to Canadians by performing his song “Home” as an ode to his native land.
