Juno Awards

BRITs, what BRITs? Exactly. It’s all about the 2013 nominations for Canada’s less capitalised (but still quite BRITs-esque) Juno Awards, released earlier this week. And that Carly Rae Jepsen is shortlisted for five, meaning she is a slightly greater Canadian artiste than Justin Bieber, who only features four times in the noms shortlists. So far, so blah.

Have a look at the unabridged nominations lists, as also feature Grimes, The Weeknd, Japandroids, Cold Specks, Metric and One Direction (who aren’t at all Canadian, but have crept into contention via an International Album Of The Year loophole), by clicking this link.
