While many victories went to acts that may be unfamiliar to international audiences, many pop favorites took home trophies. Justin Bieber and his Beliebers took home the Juno Fan Choice Award, which was voted on by fans. Adele snagged the award for International Album of the Year for her unstoppable ’21,’ while Toronto-native Drake took home an accolade of his own.
