Charlotte Cardin tops Juno nominations
Nominations for the Juno Awards, which celebrate the best in Canadian music, have just been unveiled and Montrealer Charlotte Cardin arrives in top of the list, ahead of planetary icons Justin Bieber and The Weeknd.
The adored singer of Quebecers obtained no less than six nominations in high-level categories such as artist of the year, album of the year or song of the year for Meaningless.
She is the second Quebecer in Juno history to receive this number of nominations. The first was none other than Celine Dion in 1993, 1997 and 1999.
Justin Bieber and The Weeknd follow with five nominations each.
Quebec well represented
Charlotte Cardin is not the only artist from the Belle Province to see her talent hailed. In all, no less than 34 Quebec artists were selected. Among them, Yannick Nézet-Séguin stands out three times. Cœur de Pirate and Kaytranada receive two nominations respectively.
The Juno Awards Evening will be broadcast on Sunday, May 15 starting at 8 p.m. on CBC platforms.
