Feist sings way to Juno wins
EmptyCanadian songstress Feist swept the Junos, Canada's music awards, walking away with five trophies during the weekend.
Feist earned Junos for best artist and best songwriter Saturday during a nontelevised industry awards show in Calgary. On Sunday, the Canadian indie artist grabbed three more trophies for single, for "1234," and album and pop album for her latest CD, "The Reminder," during a nationwide telecast on the CTV network.
Feist, who garnered four nominations at the most recent Grammys, beat out Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne, Michael Buble and newcomer Pascale Picard for the artist of the year Juno.
Buble grabbed the fan choice award Sunday, while rock band Blue Rodeo earned the group award to add to the top adult alternative album and video trophies they picked up Saturday.
Other multiple winners at the Junos included rock band Arcade Fire, which earned hardware for alternative album and CD/DVD artwork design.
The best international album, based on retail record sales in Canada, went to Rihanna for "Girl Gone Bad."
