While American celebrate the 45th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, the Canadian had Juno Awards held on April 18 to honor musicians in the country. Dominating the Sunday awards show with multiple nods were Michael Buble and Drake.
Michael received four gongs. First, he got a trophy for Juno Fan Choice Award. "I would like to thank the sponsor, Pepsi," the 34-year-old singer said during the acceptance speech. "Pepsi tastes great in a glass, but in a Slurpee it completes me."
Then, he received his other honor for Single of the Year, thanks to his hit single "Haven't Met You Yet". One day earlier at a non-televised gala, he was handed Pop Album of the Year, saying "Seven years ago I came to this event as a pudgy young kid full of dreams and I come here tonight as a middle-aged balding man whose dream is to have hair like the Biebers." He additionally won Album of the Year.
As for Drake, he won over Justin Bieber, Danny Fernandes, Carly Rae Jepsen and Shiloh for New Artist of the Year title. When collecting the prize, the rapper gave his teen fellow singer a shout out, "Justin Bieber, you work really hard and I wanna share this with you."
