Two of the hottest Canadian acts cleaned up at this year’s Europe Music Awards on Thursday. Nelly Furtado and Avril Lavigne went to Munich with high hopes, and left with all the glory.
Lavigne’s summer sensation “Girlfriend” was awarded the Most Addicting Track of 2007, and the artist herself took home best Solo Artist of the year. Likewise, Frutado’s compilation of club bangers and soulful ballads “Loose” took home the very prestigious album of the year.
However, the real spectacle of the night was everyone’s favourite addict Amy Winehouse. Judging by her MTV Artist’s Choice win, saying ‘no, no, no’ to rehab turned out to be a smart career choice after all. Winehouse accepted her award with a meager “Thanks,” before reappearing back on stage to perform for the fans. The singer’s shaky, distracted rendition of her single “Back to Black” rivaled Britney’s train wreck performance of “Gimmie More” earlier this year.
Muse, Justice and Rihanna also took home some awards throughout the night, as well as Linkin Park winning Best Band.
