“It’s so cute!” She shouted, with her Juno artist of the year in her hand, as she thanked everyone around her.

Only The Weeknd was able to compete with Charlotte Cardin taking on two Juno in categories where Quebecer was not in the race.

The last Quebec winner to win the prestigious Juno Artist of the Year award? Leonard Cohen in 2017.

On Saturday night, only Juno for the music video of the year saved Cardin, in favor of Xavier Dolan.

It is not over. On Sunday night, at the TV gala, she will be able to add two awards in the categories Album of the Year and Choice of Fans.
