Damnit Maurie & The Headcam were all over Ottawa and the Juno Awards this past weekend!
Why Karl Wolf wont show his abs, Neverest and ghosts, Down With Webster and playing “Nikki Nikki Nine Doors” AND Deadmau5 talks Madonna!!
It was an unforgettable night, with Toronto’s Feist and first-time JUNO-nominees The Sheepdogs taking home additional hardware, each topping up their JUNO weekend wins to three statues each. Lighting up the stage throughout the show were several special Canadian collaborations, including K’NAAN joining forces with Simple Plan to perform a rap-punk rendition of the Montreal group’s hit single “Summer Paradise”, and Blue Rodeo performing “Lost Together” with Sarah McLachlan before she welcomed the band into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
The audience in Ottawa and across Canada were also treated to a show-stopping dance ‘mixed tape’ performance, featuring appearances by Alyssa Reid, Anjulie, Dragonette, JRDN and Mia Martina. In an unforgettable closing number, electronic artist Deadmau5 was joined onstage by hip-hop DJ MC Flipside and 2012 JUNO Award nominee Lights, who helped bring this year’s broadcast to an explosive finish. Lets not forget the show was Captained by William Shatner who was excited to see the headcam on the red carpet.
