Susan Boyle nets Juno nomination

Singer to compete against Spears, Swift at April 18 awards

TORONTO -- "Britain's Got Talent" star Susan Boyle is set to live the dream at the Junos, Canada's music awards.

Boyle's chart-topping "I Dreamed a Dream" album will compete next month in the best international album competition against Black Eyed Peas' "The E.N.D.," Britney Spears' "Circus," Kings of Leon's "Only by the Night" and Taylor Swift's "Fearless."

Boyle's "I Dreamed a Dream" was the best-selling album in Canada last year, despite being released at the tail end of the year.

Another chart-topper, Michael Buble's "Crazy Love," earned the Canadian crooner a field-leading six nominations going into next month's Junos as nominees were unveiled Wednesday in Toronto.

Buble will compete for the Juno fan choice award, best single for "Haven't Met You Yet" and the best album category, among others.

Other Juno contenders include rockers Billy Talent, hip-hop artist Drake and singer-songwriter Johnny Reid, each with four nominations.

And pop artist Justin Bieber and indie rock band Metric both earned three nominations.

The Juno awards will be handed out April 18 in St. John's, Newfoundland, and will air live nationwide on the CTV networks.
