Earlier in the week, Club Soda was the spot where 23 trophies were presented, another 21 at MTelus and then, Sunday, the event of events was staged at Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier of Place des Arts where a mix of the old and the new were celebrated.

Chief amongst the old guard was the surprise comeback of Ginette Reno with an album of new material written by some of the province’s best known and most successful songwriters. Reno’s first recordings were for Apex in 1963. All these years later, her latest, À Jamais, won in the Best-Selling Album and Adult Contemporary Album categories. The album, released in October 2018, has so far sold 95,000 physical copies, according to Montreal Gazette writer Brendan Kelly.
