Drake, Billy Talent, Hedley, Alexisonfire Get MMVA Nominations

What is this, the Junos, part two?

This year’s MuchMusic Video Awards nominations look a hell of a lot like this year’s Juno nominations, considering most of the artists were up for Junos last month.

Drake, Billy Talent, Hedley, Alexisonfire, Justin Bieber and Classified lead the list of nominees, which also includes international artists like Adam Lambert, Ke$ha, Eminem, Lady Gaga, Kings Of Leon, Gorillaz and others.

This year’s MuchMusic Video Awards will be televised live on June 20 at 9 p.m. ET, and will be co-hosted by Miley Cyrus. Parents, please make sure your teen or pre-teen has access to a television set at that time, or they’re likely to get quite upset.
