The 23 Most Canadian Moments From The 2015 Juno Awards

So much Canadian-ness crammed into just two hours.

Posted on

1. When Tim Hortons got in on the Magic with their 360 cam.

Live from the @vine 360 booth presented by @TimHortons on the #JUNOS Red Carpet with @ournameisMAGIC

The room was spinning from too much java.

2. When actual mounties infiltrated the red carpet.

Singer @Kiesza shines bright on the #JUNOS red carpet #JUNOS2015

They always get their (wo)man.

3. When a little cold wasn't going to get anyone down, and production came prepared.

Who will heat up #JUNOS red carpet? Or should I say what? #cbcarts #cbcJUNOS

4. (It was a good thing, too, because host Jacob Hoggard showed up in a gold onesie.)

That time @JacobHoggard showed off some sweet dance moves in gold onesie:

Few men pull off gold unitards anymore...


5. When they asked this guy to give out an award.

Jared Keeso will always be that guy who played Don Cherry for those CBC movies.

7. Hey, at least the band Arkells was excited.

The men of @ArkellsMusic were just a little excited to try out our Bieber Photo Booth... #etalkJUNOS #JUNOS

Everyone needs a good man crush now and again.


13. When the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages presented an award.

Heureuse d'être aux #Junos2015 et de parler avec Keisza, en nomination dans la catégorie "Révélation de l'année"

She cleans up nice.

14. When Shawn Mendes tried to convince us he drank milk 'cause he's still underage, proving Canadians love self-deprecation.


Too bad Jacob didn't let the youngin' backstage for a real bevvy with the other 19 year-olds.


17. When Jacob couldn't help himself and issued a requisite Leafs jab:

"Headley is 2/29 Kind of makes us like the Toronto Maple Leafs of bands. Only we’ll still be playing in the Spring."

18. When an Inuit throat singer introduced us to the Canadian "CockRockTail" mix.


Here's a quick rundown of Tanya Tagaq's unique artistry:

- One-part legendary poet

- Four-parts Alberta Rock

- Add a Quebec Romantic

- Mix it with a young Montreal Star

- Sprinkle with some West Coast Pop Rock


21. And then Alanis gave the most Canadian acceptance speech ever.

💕 Thank u! "@TheJUNOAwards: Congratulations @Alanis, the 2015 Canadian Music Hall of Fame Inductee! #ThankUAlanis "

Watched @Alanis perform Uninvited/You Oughta Know/Thank U at the @TheJUNOAwards & recall her singing Ironic on the 1996 show. #ThankUAlanis

Congrats @alanis on being inducted to the Cdn Music Hall of Fame. We've got one hand in our pocket and the other one is giving a standing O.


"I love Justin [Bieber]," Alanis Morrissette just told me. So that's where we're at in Canada. #JUNOS

You, you, you oughta know @Alanis is the ULTIMATE CANADIAN DREAM. #JUNOS ❤️🍁💃

23. Even Jacob got in on the Alanis and Canadian love with his closing performance.

Thank you @JacobHoggard for being a great #JUNOS host! He has a 'thank you' of his own:

"Thank you @BenMulroney's hair!" Automatically the best cover ever @JacobHoggard #etalkJUNOS

"Thank God Nickelback wasn't here." — Jacob Hoggard.

Bless you. "Thank God Nickelback wasn't here." @JacobHoggard speaks what every Canadian is thinking.
