If there are a number of take-aways from the 2019 Juno Awards they’re this: Shawn Mendes took house essentially the most trophies, Sting made a shock look and Corey Hart can nonetheless get the group on their ft.
On the awards aspect of issues, Mendes took house 5 of the six trophies he was nominated for, together with single of yr for “In My Blood”, artist of the yr, album of the yr, songwriter of the yr and pop album of the yr.
