Before I run out to check out the Indie Awards for this year’s Canadian Music Week, I wanted to drop a couple of photos from last night’s CHUM Fanfest at the Masonic Temple.
There must have been a lot of hoarse fans in Toronto following the 2009 MuchMusic Video Awards, which drew dozens of the world’s biggest pop stars to the corner of Queen and John on Sunday, June 21.
The MuchMusic Video Awards announced two more presenters today, just three days ahead of the festivities, revealing that Drake and the lovely ladies of Girlicious will be walking the red carpet and presenting awards.
One of Toronto’s biggest celebrity events took over the corner of Queen and John as the 2008 MuchMusic Video Awards brought fans and stars together for a night of music. And rain.
The red carpet was a bit of a wash-out as a torrential downpouring of rain soaked the fans, celebs, and even the assembled media-types trying to get their sound bites and photos.
Okay, so it was a busy, busy night. I just got home from the MuchMusic Video Awards and I ended up shooting just over 600 photos (not as many as some years, but enough to make sorting and editing a major job). I got images of nearly all the major attendees, including the New Kids on the Block, Rihanna, Rainn Wilson, Girlicious, Simple Plan and a bunch of others.
