Another Juno Awards ceremony went down in history on Sunday,
this time in the giant mall town of Edmonton. The city is also situated in
the home province of Nickelback, so you should be able to smell where the awards
were going — and it frighteningly reeks.
Adding to the stink was Sam Roberts, who apparently needed reminders about
how “great” he is.
But there were highlights. Gruff, yet dashing, hip-hopper Buck 65 picked up
Best Alternative Album, while suave crooner Michael Buble won Best New Artist — both
received their awards the night before in ceremonies the industry doesn’t
think people care about.
Or how about that glowing highlight, the spotlight that made aging Alice Cooper
look tanned, while making Anne Murray look hot?
But the talk of the town is surely host Alanis Morissette, who performed unfunny
sketches and bared all in a nudie suit, all with a joyous manner that matched
her new Paige Davis hairdo.
