Canadian crooner Michael Buble and Montreal-based songwriter Jennifer Gasoi each picked up a Grammy at the pre-telecast Sunday.
Buble picked up his fourth trophy in the best traditional pop vocal album category for "To Be Loved." The album has been certified twice platinumin Canada and gold in the U.S.
The 38-year-old has been nominated in this category with each of his past five albums and has won it four times. He wasn't there Sunday to claim his award.
Gasoi picked up first Grammy, proclaiming herself the first Canadian to ever win for best children's album.
The two-time Juno Award nominee claimed the prize for ``Throw a Penny in the Wishing Well'' at a pre-telecast ceremony Sunday at which 72 trophies total were to be handed out ahead of the evening broadcast at the Staples Center.
"Oh my God. I've dreamt of this day for 20 years. It's on my vision board,'' said Gasoi, whose jazz-based tunes are intended to appeal to tots and adults alike.
"It's about living your dreams, having the courage to step out of the box and take risks and live the life that you're really meant to live. And I feel very proud to be doing that and I am grateful and honoured and blessed to be standing here before you.''
Going into the show, Jay Z led with nine nominations, while Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Justin Timberlake and Pharrell Williams were next with seven.
Toronto's Drake led the Canadian nominations with five.
