Each year, Canada hands out their equivalent of the Grammys – the Juno Award. And each year, it’s another opportunity to see the likes of Shania Twain, Neil Young, Arcade Fire, Buffy Sainte-Marie and Deadmau5 share the same room.
We were not disappointed in 2011. Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, here are your 2011 Juno Award Winners!
