The JUNO Awards are happening on April 21st and this morning the 2013 nominees were announced live via press conference. The results are about what you’d expect with Carly Rae Jepsen leading with 5 nominations, but there are some surprises, too, like how bad the Rap category is, how decent the Metal category is and that Rod Stewart’s Christmas album is considered one of the 5 best choices for International Album of the Year.
