Toronto’s music scene was incredible 20 years ago. The concert listings in the city filled pages, and any music lover would sometimes have to pick between a couple of different shows on a Friday or Saturday night.
The Juno Awards took to the streets of Ottawa over the last week, wrapping up tonight, Sunday, April 1, with the live awards telecast at Scotiabank Place where some of Canada’s top musicians walked the red carpet.
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 2009 MuchMusic Video Awards are barely over, but The GATE wanted to give you a little keepsake to remember some of your favorite moments from this year’s show.
We will have lots more of our own photos from the event tomorrow, but to keep you amused here are three photos courtesy of MuchMusic.
Nominations for the 2009 MuchMusic Video Awards are in, and love them or not, Nickelback topped the list with five nods, tied with R&B singer Danny Fernandes.
Okay, it’s the final run for this year’s Junos and I’m running out of steam. This show is dragging me down, down, down.
While I fight with my urges to change the channel, Simple Plan perform “Your Love Is A Lie”, which is actually what I might call the dullest performance of the night. That kind of shocks me a little, considering these guys are pretty cool, and they usually rile up the crowds. Not so much tonight, but then again, they were kind of shoe-horned into this non-moment in the show.
The 2009 Juno Awards have arrived after an hour-long delay thanks to the Amazing Race. So, when the awards finally kick off, what are we treated to, but Nickelback opening the show, again, with pyrotechnics and singing “Something In Your Mouth”.
Am I the only person in Canada who is tired of these idiots? Their crappy brand of redneck rock is dead. Move on. Do honest-to-God rednecks even buy this crap any more?
