As one of the most successful Canadian recording artists of the past year, it's no surprise that Carly Rae Jepsen scored a leading five nominations for this year's Juno Awards, the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy Awards.  She'll find out how many of those she's won this Sunday night as the Juno Awards are held in Regina, Saskatchewan, with Michael Buble as the host.

Carly is nominated in the categories of Artist of the Year, Album and Pop Album of the Year for Kiss , Single of the Year for "Call Me Maybe," and Juno Fan Choice.  She'll also perform on the telecast.

Justin Bieber , who helped make Carly Rae Jepsen a star outside of Canada, received four nominations, including Album of the Year and Pop Album of the Year for Believe , plus Artist of the Year and Juno Fan Choice.

In the International Album of the Year category, nominees include One Direction's Up All Night , Maroon 5's Overexposed , Taylor Swift's Red , and Babel by Mumford & Sons .
