1. Justin Bieber

Let's face it: The Biebs had a great year.

His new album Purpose is catchy as hell and winning over even some of his most ardent haters.

He's also finally outgrown his drag-racing and mop-bucket-pissing past.

Plus, he debuted a new haircut. This has been one helluva 2015 for our boy Justin!

(Let's just all agree to forget that weird thing Bieber's dad tweeted about his son's dick.)

2. Justin Trudeau

Let's face it: The Trudes had a great year.

He took the Liberal Party of Canada from third place to first, forming a majority government and ending a decade of Conservative rule under Stephen Harper.

He inspired worldwide thirst as one of the "sexiest men alive" and his policies are making a lot of Americans think about moving.

He's also the first Justin to become prime minister of Canada, making great strides for Justins everywhere.

3. Justin Morneau

Let's face it: I just learned who Justin Morneau is.

The Colorado Rockies first baseman completed his 12th year in the majors in 2015 and passed 1,500 career hits. That seems impressive, no?

Another Canadian Justin, living his best life.

4. Justin Altmann

Never heard of Justin Altmann? Well he's the mayor of Whitchurch-Stouffville, Ontario — and as far as we can tell, probably the only Canadian mayor named Justin.

Way to go, Justin!


5. Justin Nozuka

Justin Nozuka had a quiet 2015, but he's still Canadian and named Justin, so he makes the list. He's also working on a new EP, so there's that to look forward to.

And let's not forget that "After Tonight" is still a really great song.

Way to go Justin!

6. Justin Reiter


Justin Reiter, unfortunately, is not real. But a fake story about this supposed lottery winner went viral this year, claiming he died after using his winnings to gold-plate his testicles.

The story, which has been debunked by, was that "Reiter used a professional automotive gold plater that he borrowed from a garage" and died 12 hours later, possibly from lead poisoning.

While this Justin did not exist, we sincerely wish that he did, making him worthy of inclusion.

7. Your buddy Justin


We all have a friend named Justin, and he had a great 2015.

The year started out with Justin going through some personal struggles, but he really pulled through and ended on a high note. Now he's back to the same old Justin you've always loved.

You know what he's like. Always taking the middle seat on the couch, wearing striped shirts, pumping his fists enthusiastically when your favourite sports team scores. What a cool fun guy!

Atta boy, Justin. You've had one helluva 2015.
