Juno-2015

It’s official, the nominations for the 2015 JUNO’s have been released. And though the award show is almost two months away, these nominations have left us with plenty to talk about.

Let’s start with the nomination leaders, which include newcomers MAGIC! with 5 nominations, and Kiesza following with 4. Then there are the JUNO veterans like Leonard Cohen who keeps up with Kiesza’s 4 nominations and groups like Nickelback and Hedley with 3 nominations apiece.

Though perhaps the most shocking news of the Juno’s thus far is that Justin Bieber did not receive one nomination. Bieber wasn’t even considered for the fan choice award which means his 4 year streak as fan choice champion has come to an end, which makes for a wide open race this year.

Below we have a list of notable artist’s with multiple nominations. For a full list of nominations click here http://junoawards.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/FINAL-2015-JUNO-Nominee-List.pdf
