Since the Juno Awards focus on sales, I can't say I'm surprised, haha. Pretty much anything Justin Bieber or Michael Buble put out is going to sell.

Especially the fact that there is one vocalist and they all play their own instruments, right?

There are definitely some good Canadian groups nominated here (Dan Mangan, Austra, Malajube, Timber Timbre, Braids, Fucked Up, Diamond Rings) but seriously.. how did Neverending White Lights not even get a mention....This committee must be deaf.

Kind of odd that Hey Rosetta! and Mother Mother are nominated for Best New Group when they already were pretty successful before last year.

The Francophone and Alternative nominations are lovely. Let's hope Drake take home AOTY because none of the others really deserve it.

despite all of that, they come off as a big time rush type of band.

Have you heard all of their other music? I understand why you could come to that conclusion from their newest album sort of but they're not manufactured if that's what you're implying.
