Arcade Fire take home four Junos

Arcade Fire have followed their victories at the Grammys and Brit awards by capturing four Juno gongs at the Canadian music awards.

The rockers picked up prizes for group of the year, album of the year for The Suburbs, best alternative album of the year and songwriter of the year at the ceremony, which was held on Sunday in Toronto.

The Canadian band's multi-instrumentalist, Richard Reed Parry, said: "Toronto is one of the first places we had, like, really exciting shows and felt like something crazy might be about to happen. And something did. So thanks for being there with us."

Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber won the first two Juno awards of his career for pop album of the year and the Juno fan choice award.

The star, who couldn't attend the ceremony, thanked fans via video message and added: "Most of all, I want to thank my mom for raising me in Canada."

The Junos, which celebrated its 40th anniversary, gave a significant shout out to veteran artist Neil Young, 65, who claimed the prize for artist of the year, adult alternative album of the year for Le Noise and a humanitarian award.

"It's just totally incomprehensible that I'm here. But it's a great honour. Thank you very much everybody. I really appreciate it. O Canada!" said the rock legend in reference to the country's national anthem.

Country-pop singer Shania Twain, 45, also received a significant pat on the back as she was ushered into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame with an introduction speech from Bryan Adams, who called Twain a "Canadian treasure," and video testimonials from Taylor Swift and Anne Murray.
