Jepsen was nominated for two prizes at the recent Grammy Awards but went home empty-handed.

At the Junos, she’ll vie for the fan choice award, single of the year, album of the year, artist of the year and pop album of the year.

Among her competition will be teen phenom Justin Bieber, who is also up for fan choice, best album, best artist and pop album.

Triple Juno nominees include Hedley, Metric, Marianas Trench and Leonard Cohen.

In addition to Bieber, Jepsen’s competition for artist of the year will be Deadmau5, Leonard Cohen and Johnny Reid.

“Call Me Maybe” has achieved unprecedented success, topping charts in Canada, the U.S., New Zealand, Austria, France, Ireland, Denmark, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. It occupied the top spot in the U.S. for nine straight weeks

      Ken; yeah I didn't notice your name either! Doyle's numbers say otherwise and a few good friends is always a good thing.
