Tegan and Sara ruled the 43rd Juno Awards, picking up a leading three awards including single of the year and group of the year.
    
The Calgary twins also picked up pop album of the year for ``Heartthrob.'' Their three-Juno haul was surprising given that they had never won in the past despite five nominations.
    
Montreal's Arcade Fire won two Junos including album of the year for their ambitious double-disc record ``Reflektor,'' while Justin Bieber took the Juno Fan Choice award for the fourth year in a row to a chorus of boos from the Winnipeg crowd.
    
Co-host Serena Ryder won both songwriter and artist of the year while performing twice on the Junos stage.

Winnipeg rock legends Bachman-Turner Overdrive were ushered into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame prior to a show-closing tribute performance featuring Matt Mays and the Sheepdogs.
    
``Blurred Lines'' crooner and three-time nominee Robin Thicke had been scheduled to perform during the telecast but it was announced the morning of the show that he wasn't going to be able to make it.
