Nominees for the 2008 Juno Awards, Canada's primary music honours, were announced in Toronto on Tuesday. Celine Dion received nominations in six categories. Five nominations apiece were given to Michael Bublé, Feist and Avril Lavigne, who also happen to be previously scheduled performers at the Juno ceremonies. Ottawa's controversial rapper Belly received nominations in both the best rap recording and best new artist categories.

Rock band Triumph will be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at the Juno awards ceremony, to be held in Calgary on 6th April. Russell Peters will host the ceremonies which will be televised by CTV television.
