But that changed this year when Arcade Fire dominated a Drake-hosted Junos that also featured televised performances by Chromeo, Tokyo Police Club and Broken Social Scene.
Apparently, the academy is planning to keep that streak alive for the 2012 Juno Awards on April 1 in Ottawa, ON, as they've just announced Feist and Deadmau5 as performers at the award show, alongside singer-songwriter City and Colour and Canadian roots-rock icons Blue Rodeo.
Now, it may not be a massive risk, what with Feist's '1234' iPod infamy and her 2008 Juno sweep that saw the Toronto-based singer take home five Junos, and the fact that Deadmau5 -- also a regular Juno recipient in the dance category -- recently selling out Toronto's Rogers Arena for a 20,000-person rave. But the fact that these incredibly diverse artists are playing the usually more Bieber-esque telecast is still pretty freaking cool.
