A first awards ceremony was held Saturday evening at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
Charlotte Cardin won the prestigious Artist of the Year awards. She also received the statuette for song of the year, thanks to her composition Meaningless.
The singer-songwriter also took home honors for pop album of the year. She is also nominated in the TikTok People’s Choice category.
During her acceptance speech on Saturday evening, Charlotte Cardin seemed very excited about her victories and showed a broad smile. She thanked those close to her and those who contributed to the release of her first career album. “I promise you that I will continue to work very hard to produce great music,” she said after receiving the Artist of the Year award.
However, it did not win the music video of the year award. Montreal filmmaker Xavier Dolan received the distinction in this category thanks to his music video Easy on me by singer Adele.
In addition, the French-language album put Cœur de pirate, Vincent Vallière, Louis-Jean Cormier, Roxane Bruneau and Fouki in competition. Cœur de pirate has won this prize. She was also nominated for Instrumental Album of the Year. New Brunswick-born artist David Myles received the award for his album The Tall Distance.
Quebecer Roxane Bruneau was one of the artists who performed on the gala stage on Saturday evening. On Sunday, during the main evening of the Juno Awards, Charlotte Cardin will perform on stage in turn.
This year, the Juno Awards wanted to put more spotlight on the music of Indigenous artists. The gala included two new categories aimed at showcasing artists from Indigenous communities.
