Buble blasts to top of Canuck’s Junos

Crooner takes three trophies at kudofest

TORONTO — Michael Buble dominated the final night of the Juno Awards, Canada’s music kudos, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Sunday.

Velvet-voiced crooner from Vancouver took three of the most prestigious awards: top artist, single of the year for his track “Home” and album (“It’s Time”). Buble received five noms. “It’s Time” also drew the pop album plaudit Saturday night, when 32 of the 39 statuettes were handed out.

Alberta hard rockers Nickelback, which received the most noms, with six, took two statuettes: group and album for “All the Right Reasons.”

Other winners Sunday night were Simple Plan, which drew the fan choice award, Arcade Fire for songwriter of the year, Bedouin Soundclash for new group, and Broken Social Scene’s self-titled disc for alternative album.

Other winners Saturday night were Daniel Powter for new artist; Diana Krall, vocal jazz album for “Christmas Songs” (she’d received five noms); and Daniel Lanois, instrumental album for “Belladonna.”

Unlike with the Canuck TV and film scene, government subsidies and regulation have paid off for Canada’s music industry. This year’s kudocast was the biggest ever, with 11 international networks picking up the two-hour event hosted by Pamela Anderson. In addition to perfs from homegrown acts Buble, Bedouin Soundclash, Broken Social Scene and 2006 Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee Bryan Adams, Coldplay and Black Eyed Peas, whose “X&Y” and “Monkey Business” tied for international album of the year, also performed.

Canuck web CTV has aired the telecast since 2002.
