Drake and Justin Bieber at the 2010 Juno Awards
Get set for Drake to face off against Justin Bieber at the Junos.
Canadian hip-hop star Drake leads the field with six nominations going into the Junos, with Bieber taking four of his own. Drake, born in Toronto as Aubrey Graham, picked up nods for best album, best songwriter, best rap recording and best single for “Find Your Love.”
Drake, who will also emcee the Junos on March 27, will compete in Toronto against Stratford, Ontario-born Bieber, who received nominations for best album, best artist, and best pop album for My World 2.0. Bieber and Drake will also contend in the Juno fan choice competition against fellow multiple nominees Hedley, Johnny Reid and Michael Bublé.
The Junos will air live on the CTV network from the Air Canada Center in Toronto.
What’s wrong with Canada! kidding 🙂
Justin lost all 3 Juno Awards that he was nominated for including Best New Artist.
Who votes for these things anyway? Is it those OLD MEN
The critics all agree. Justin will take home Pop Album of the Year at the Junos on Monday. Doesn’t seem like he has a chance against Michael Buble in the Album of the Year category. But he is head to head with Drake in the New Artist of the Year category with Justin slightly favored to win. That means he might be taking home 2 of the 3 awards he is nominated for.
That is soooooooo awesome. Or as the British like to say ‘so brilliant! Now would you like to have a cup of tea?’.
For Pop Album of the year:
“The Bieb has The Bub and all the other competitors beat for Pop Album of the Year.”
“Bieber could snag pop album prize from under Buble’s nose”
“Justin Bieber’s My World for pop album of the year (since Michael Buble’s Crazy Love will win album of the year).”
For New Artist of the Year:
“Oooh . . . now THIS is shaping up to be a tantalizing category, what with two of Canada’s top exports, Drake and Justin Bieber, going head to head. My money’s on Justin – only because Drake has yet to officially release a full album.”
“Drake vs. Bieber 2010 is a tough two-horse race, almost too tough to call.”
“My heart says Drake, my brain says leave it to Bieber.”
Are you guys excited as I am about this? OMG Justin’s gonna win!!!!!
