Juno Awards – The Nominees – Part 1
Tuesday was a big day for Canadian music as it was the day that the Juno nominations were announced. The Juno Awards are Canada’s Grammy Awards and the competition is stiff every year. This year, the show will be coming from Ottawa, Ontario, the nation’s capital. Every year, the festival has grown bigger and bigger. It’s now a week-long event. This year it begins on March 26, culminating in the actual award show on April 1. As an added bonus, William Shatner is hosting this year. I remember it in Saskatoon a few years ago, when we lived there. Every possible venue was filled with fans and musicians listening to Canadian music on stage. A real celebration. This year will be no different.
I will be presenting a number of posts over the next week or 3 highlighting the nominees in each category. Nothing fancy, just the category, the nominees and a video. If you like, follow the link to their website, or head off to iTunes or Amazon and get the music.
I start with:
Dance Recording of the Year
Anjulie – Brand New Chick
Deadmau5 – Aural Psynapse
Duck Sauce – Barbara Streisand
Martin Solveig & Drgonette – Hello
