Hosted by Drake, who in spite of his show-leading six nominations left empty handed, this past weekend’s Juno awards were somehow pretty entertaining. Sure they made Canada’s music scene seem like little more than a conglomeration of ageing hippies and filthy hipsters, but…actually, that’s pretty much what the Canadian music scene is.

One of the biggest surprises of the night, other than Neil Young’s inexplicable victory for Artist of the Year and Shania Twain’s reference to her “Canadian Bush” was Drake’s job as a host. From his before-show Skype skit with news anchor Lloyd Robertson and Justin Bieber to his Chilly Gonzales accompanied rendition of Snow’s “Informer”, Drake was a surprisingly personable and entertaining host, but perhaps no part of Drake’s hosting turn was as goofy and peculiar as the skit you’re about to see. In it, Drake plays on the “Young Money” label by, well…harassing a bunch of senior citizens. Cuuuuuute?

Yeah, I liked this skit. And the "Canadian bush" thing was flippin' hilarious.
Also, Neil Young likes Arcade Fire!

I assume you are referring to Montreal's hockey team, since the nationality is Canadian. And yes the Canadiens suck.

dood is jimmy brooks...i wonder if he's back yet from Amsterdam with that white girl, they were getting stem cell research to try to make him walk again...shit was G how he blackmailed his dad threatening to tell his mom his dad was cheating on him...i was like, "Hey Jimmy, i know you did that song with ashley, but do you gotta be so cold-blooded"...he didn't even drop dat mac and cheese on rick, it was all gavin spinner mason and Jay's fault...and what happens? Spinner ends up marrying Emma, Jay gets with manny, and who does jimmy get with? He can't get a hard on when ashley was in that sexy outfit...he never pulls the trigger with Elle...all he accomplished was getting with that black girl with the big tatas but i think even Toby Isaacs cudda got with her...im just sayin...

Arcade Fire and Neil Young (he fucking deserved it, no one on sputnik gave a shit about his album but it was the best thing he has done in nearly 30 years) took home almost all the major awards
Caribou (my biggest grower from last year) walked home with the electronic music award.

It was a damn good time.
