ABC/ Lou RoccoAs one of the most successful Canadian recording artists of the past 12 months, it's no surprise that Carly Rae Jepsen scored a leading five nominations for this year's Juno Awards, the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy Awards.  On Sunday night, she'll find out how many of those trophies she'll take home as the Juno Awards air April 21, live from Regina, Saskatchewan, with Michael Buble as the host.

Carly is nominated in the categories of Artist of the Year, Album and Pop Album of the Year for Kiss, Single of the Year for "Call Me Maybe," and Juno Fan Choice.  She'll also perform on the telecast.

One of Carly's main competitors this year is none other than Justin Bieber, who helped make Carly a star outside of Canada. He's got four nominations, including Album of the Year and Pop Album of the Year for Believe, plus Artist of the Year and Juno Fan Choice.
