It was a jam-packed evening of excitement at last night's Juno Awards, held in Ottawa and hosted by the incredible William Shatner – Feist (also known as Leslie Feist) and The Sheepdogs were amongst the biggest winners, along with Michael Buble.

"I’m just in shock, “ said Feist as she accepted the artist of the year accolade (as reported by CBC News). "All I can do is express some genuine gratitude. The categories tonight are of a very international nature. I'm very proud and very grateful for my inner sanctum." She also won Adult Alternative Album of the Year along with Music DVD.

Other winners included: Michael Buble's Christmas album winning Album of the Year, The Sheepdogs (who got their start winning a Rolling Stone cover contest last year) took home honours for Single of the Year with "I Don't Know", New Group of the Year and Rock Album of the Year, Adele won International Album of the Year, Group of the Year went to Arkells, Pop Album of the Year was given to Hedley, and finally the Rap Recording of the Year went to "Degrassi" alum and one of the biggest recording artists of the year, Drake.

Nickelback was completely left out of the Juno Awards last night, taking part in a funny spoof performed with emcee Shatner but winning not one single trophy.

Later in the show Blue Rodeo was inducted into the coveted Canadian Music Hall of fame and performed one of their most beloved and popular hits "Lost Together" with home-grown songstress Sarah McLachlan.
