2012 Juno Award Winners List

The 41st Juno Awards (Canada’s music awards) ceremony was held in Ottawa on Sunday, April 1st. With the witty 81 year old William Shatner hosting (and singing a medley of Canadian rock classics in his patent spoken-word style), the somewhat lower profile show, compared to previous years, had some highlights and low including a Christmas album for Album of the Year (but I still like Buble) and Beiber for fan choice!
