Arcade Fire Win Best Album At Canada's Junos

08:01 AM Monday 3/28/11 | |

Canadian indie band Arcade Fire followed their huge victories at the Grammys and Brit awards by capturing four Juno awards including album of the year for "The Suburbs" and group of the year at the Canadian music awards ceremony Sunday night.

After the rockers' surprise Grammy for best album of the year and Brit award win for best international album, it would have been shocking if the critic darlings didn't snag a Juno for the success of their album in the country they call home and where they initially built their fan base.

"We're truly overwhelmed," said the band's gangly multi-instrumentalist, Richard Reed Parry in Toronto's Air Canada Center where the Junos were held. "Thank you everybody. Thank you to Montreal, our home where we all live, and thanks to Toronto."

"Toronto is one of the first places we had, like, really exciting shows and felt like something crazy might be about to happen. And something did. So thanks for being there with us."

The rock outfit also won best alternative album of the year and songwriter of the year, leaving them short of just one win out of their five nominations.

The Suburbs beat out pint-sized pop star Justin Bieber's My World 2.0, Drake's Thank Me Later, Hedley's The Show Must Go On, and A Place Called Love.

But the side-swept coifed Bieber did not go home empty-handed. The 17-year-old teen-pop titan won the first two Juno awards of his career for pop album of the year and the Juno fan choice award.

Unfortunately for millions of his tween devotees watching the televised show, the platinum-selling, pop crooner from Ontario couldn't appear in person to collect his trophies due to a scheduling demand overseas.

"I want to thank everybody so much for believing in me," said Bieber, via a video message. "Most of all, I want to thank my mom for raising me in Canada."

But the news wasn't as good for 24-year-old rapper and Juno host Drake, who entered the weekend with a leading six nominations, but wound up heading home empty-handed. In a surprise win, Canadian hip-hop artist Shad took the prize for best rap recording of the year for his album "TSOL," beating out internationally renowned Drake.

"Wow. I'm very surprised. This is like the Emmy going to Theo's friend Cockroach or something," said Shad, making a funny "Cosby Show" reference.

The Junos, which celebrated its 40th anniversary, gave a significant shout out to veteran artist Neil Young, 65, who claimed the prize for artist of the year, adult alternative album of the year for Le Noise and a humanitarian award. Young won his first Grammy this year for his music for best rock song for "An Angry World."

"It's just totally incomprehensible that I'm here. But it's a great honor. Thank you very much everybody. I really appreciate it. O Canada!" said the rock legend in reference the country's national anthem.

Beloved country-pop singer Shania Twain, 45, also received a significant pat on the back as she was ushered into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame with an introduction speech from Bryan Adams, who called Twain a "Canadian treasure," and video testimonials from Taylor Swift and Anne Murray.

    Delta,

    Are you saying it is a coincidence that this person has the same ebay store name as you and is based in Las Vegas

    Provide proof of me "scalping" or MY tickets to their shows or go away. Preferably consider putting a small caliber handgun to your temple and squeezing the trigger to accomplish the latter. Troll.

    Widely regarded as one if not simply the BEST live performers in the world today, it speaks volumes -- mainly in regards to the categories of knowledge and gig-attending experience -- that anyone would compare Grammy/Brit/Juno-award winning Arcade Fire to Sonny & Cher and Slipknot. Everyone has their own opinions on things though; good thing that it is painfully clear when one's opinion is irrelevant.

    I suppose all of the major music festivals tripping over themselves to try to book Arcade Fire as the HEADLINING act for their entire event must all be mistaken. Or perhaps it is others that are sadly mistaken.

    Arcade Fire is decent, yet I wonder if they have what it takes to remain viable in 10 years or so.    Their performance at the Grammy's was a train wreck of sorts with all of the strobe lights and screaming.  It kind of reminded me of Sonny & Cher meet Slipknot in a dark alley and not in a g@@D way.
