Buble Croons his way to Four Junos

Published: 2006-04-04
Vancouver crooner Michael BublČ cleaned up at the Juno Awards in Halifax on April 2.

BublČ was the big winner of the night, taking home four statues including best singer, album, artist, and pop album for his latest release It's Time.

He also performed during the night's festivities, along with other Canadian musicians such as Nickelback, Broken Social Scene, and Bryan Adams. The two non-Canuck performers of the night, Coldplay and Black Eyed Peas, tied for international album of the year.

Neil Young, Nickelback, The Tragically Hip, and Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra all took home a pair of Junos, while newcomers Bedouin Soundclash took home group of the year and rockers the Arcade Fire won the title for songwriter of the year.

Swooning fans from all over the country voted for pop punksters Simple Plan, who took home the fan's choice award, and to cap it all off veteran rocker Bryan Adams was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

Shut out at the awards show were any artists formerly involved in the TV competition Canadian Idol, as nominees Kalan Porter, Theresa Sokyrka, Rex Goudie, and Jacob Hoggard's band Hedley all went home empty-handed.
