It was Feist Night on CTV
I was disappointed not to be able to watch the annual JUNO Awards last night. Alas, they were on CTV, and my cable company doesn't have CTV on their menu. It's CBC or nothing for me.
But Feist did good! The Calgary singer pulled off a hat-trick in her hometown of Calgary, winning three awards on CTV's broadcast: Single of the Year, Album of the Year and Songwriter of the Year.
She also won two JUNO Awards for Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year at the JUNO Gala Dinner & Awards. That made for a clean sweep in all five categories in which she was nominated.
The five JUNOs cap off a great year for the artist, who earned four Grammy Award nominations, released a chart-topping album and delivered one of the most downloaded songs and vides of the year with 1234.
Highlights from the broadcast are now available on demand on The CTV Broadband Network at junos.CTV.ca. MuchMoreMusic presents an encore broadcast of The 2008 JUNO Awards on Thursday, April 10 at 8 PM EDT.
