Arcade Fire nabs 6 nominations at Canada’s Juno Awards 2014

TORONTO — Montreal's Arcade Fire, whose Haitian-inspired fourth album "Reflektor" was one of the most critically acclaimed releases of the year, has nabbed a leading six Juno nominations.

Michael Buble (who won a Grammy last week) and "Stompa" singer Serena Ryder are close behind with five nominations apiece.

Tegan and Sara, Drake, Celine Dion and Hedley round out the field with four nods each heading into the March 30 show in Winnipeg.

The nominations were announced Tuesday morning at a news conference in Toronto.

Arcade Fire will compete in the album of the year category against Dion's "Loved Me Back to Life," Drake's "Nothing Was the Same," Buble's "To Be Loved" and Ryder's "Harmony."

"Blurred Lines" crooner Robin Thicke — who pulled in three Juno nominations — was announced as a performer at the show, as were indie darlings Tegan and Sara, and Ryder.
