The nominees for the 2010 Junos were announced on Wednesday and a few very familiar faces lead the pack.

Michael Buble is up for six awards, and Billy Talent, Drake and Johnny Reid could each take home four trophies.

But there were also many new names on the docket: The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) announced 94 first-time nominees including Danny Fernandes, Justin Bieber and The Arkells.

“Each of these JUNO Awards nominees has contributed greatly to the success of the Canadian recording industry, and helped to raise the profile and popularity of Canadian music to even greater heights,” said Melanie Berry, President & CEO of CARAS.

“The depth and diversity of our artists are a force to be reckoned with on the world stage whether they’re established icons or emerging talents. This year’s nominees truly demonstrate the influence and creativity of Canadian music.”
