A total of 32 Juno Awards were handed out last night (Saturday) at the St. John's Convention Centre, during an industry-only dinner and show.
It was a meal of angus beef tenderloin and jumbo tiger prawns, chardonnay and champagne. It was the general high-end celebratory setting.
A performance of "John Lennon" by the Arkells kicked off the stage show. "I look at all the lonely people," sang the crowd along with the band.
The song is upbeat and will be the next single to support the Arkells' "Jackson Square."
Arkells would return to the stage to pick up a Juno for New Group of the Year. For the curious, they are set to perform at Junos on George tonight.
Throughout the night, Newfoundland son and CTV personality Seamus O'Regan held hosting duties and highlighted the return of the Junos to St. John's - having last been held in the city in 2002.
"Drake was still on Degrassi," mused O'Regan. "Justin Bieber hadn't even been born yet."
The host also acknowledged the travel troubles that were continuing to plague guests, nominees and presenters - before he was forced to accept awards for several of them.
Kings of Leon, for example, were named the winners of International Album of the Year for their album "Only By the Night." The band beat out Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Susan Boyle and the Black Eyed Peas.
"Kings of Leon are at the Halifax International Airport. They could not be here to accept this award. I do that on their behalf," said O'Regan.
It started a theme.
The fourth category presented led to the first artists able to accept their Juno Award in person. The winners were Reggae Recording of the Year's Dubmatix ft. Prince Blanco for "Gonna Be Alright."
Despite the absentees, there was still plenty of music star power in the room. From Billy Talent to Michael BublÉ, noteworthy names were on hand.
They were all able to hear St. John's native Amelia Curran perform "Mad World, Outlive Me" from her album "Hunter, Hunter" during an "In Memoriam" tribute.
Curran was also named winner of the Roots and Traditional Album of the Year: Solo category.
"Jeepers," said Curran, pausing for a moment at the podium (video of her acceptance is available at www.thetelegram.com). She would go on to welcome all to the city, tribute the artistic community and send a special thank-you to both her Six Shooter Records label and Tony Ploughman at Fred's Records, for his years of support.
Meanwhile, BublÉ accepted the award for Pop Album of the Year, losing out on Artist of the Year to K'Naan.
In a somber moment, Jacksoul was awarded R&B/Soul Recording of the Year and Ron Lopata accepted the award on behalf of the late frontman Haydain Neale, who died from a cancer in 2009.
"On the count of three, I want everyone in the room to say 'Haydain Neale,' " said Lopata. The audience responded.
Among the other presentations, there was Country Album of the Year for Johnny Reid, Dance Recording of the Year for Deadmau5, World Album of the Year for Domenic Mancuso and Solo Classical Album of the Year for Joel Quarrington.
Thirty-two have now been delivered to worthy hands and seven Juno Awards are left to be presented tonight at Mile One Centre, during the Juno Awards broadcast.
The categories to be covered are: Songwriter of the Year, Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Group of the Year, New Artist of the Year, Rap Recording of the Year and the Juno Fan Choice Award. A complete list of nominees in those categories is available below, following the list of nominees and winners in categories covered Saturday night.
