The Weeknd dominated the 2016 JUNO Awards in Calgary tonight, taking home a total of five trophies, including  Artist Of The Year, Single Of The Year, and Album Of The Year. No one came close to Abel's numbers, though Justin Bieber did score a pair, with Pop Album Of The Year and the JUNO Fan Choice award. Drake took home Rap Recording Of The Year for If You're Reading This It's Too Late, and Alessia Cara earned a much-deserved nod for Breakthrough Artist Of The Year. Most of the awards were given out yesterday at the JUNOs Gala, though six of the most coveted statues were reserved for tonight's broadcast.
