The Grammy Awards may have overlooked Justin Bieber, but Canada’s equivalent of the Grammys hasn’t forgotten about its teen pop star! Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen are the leading nominees for the 2013 Juno Awards.

Bieber has four nominations, including Artist of the Year and the Fan Choice Award, as well as Album of the Year and Pop Album of the Year for ‘Believe.’ Bieber has won three Junos in his career, including Fan Choice each of the past two years.

Jepsen scooped up five nods. She’s up against Bieber in all four categories, and she bested her mentor by earning an additional nod for Single of the Year for ‘Call Me Maybe.’ She could be the favorite in that category, given how huge the song was.

Taylor Swift and Maroon 5 are up for Best International Album, the one award in which non-Canadians are eligible. Other stars up for Juno Awards this year include Nelly Furtado, Drake, Nickelback, Deadmau5, Celine Dion, and the Weeknd.

The Junos take place on April 21 and will be hosted by Michael Buble, a nominee this year for the Fan Choice Award. Check out the nominees in key categories below.
