Leonard Cohen, Kiesza Among Winners At 2015 Junos

HAMILTON, Ont. (CelebrityAccess) — Canadian dance artist Kiesza, Leonard Cohen and Alanis Morissette were among the artists to take home trophies at the 2015 Juno Awards.

Hosted by Jacob Hoggard, the awards were broadcast live from FirstOntario Place arena in Hamilton, Ontario and featured performances by The Weeknd, Deadmau5 with Colleen D'Agostino, The Arkells, Bobby Bazini, Shawn Mendes, Lights with Sam Roberts Band, and Alanis Morrissette.

Kiesza took home trophies for Breakthrough artist of the year as well as Dance recording of the year and Vidoe of the Year. Magic! earned awards for Single of the Year for their hit "Rude" and the trophy for breakthrough group.

Leonard Cohen was recognized with Album of the Year for "Personal Problems" and Alanis Morissette was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in recognition of her substantial contribution to the Canadian music scene.

"I am deeply appreciative of this country," Morrissette said. "In particular, based on the fact that I'm clearly from here, supported in an emotional, dialogical, stream-of-consciousness storytelling way. A lot of people around the planet ask me what it is about you Canadians that make you so expressed and so compelling and I say 'There's definitely something in the water other than fluoride'"
