The unveiling of the finalists took place on Wednesday at Montreal’s Club Soda in front of a segment of the artistic elite and the media during a first press conference in three years (the pandemic has temporarily interrupted the tradition).
Hubert Lenoir comes first in quotes, his name appearing in the artistic selections of Male Performer, Alternative Album, Critics’ Album, Artist With International Influence, Author or Composer, International Collaboration and Video of the Year. In the industry categories, the album picture de ipse is cited for its arrangements (Hubert Lenoir and Gabriel Desjardins), production, cover art (Noémie D. Leclerc), and sound recording and mixing.
A little over a year has passed since the release of the album. We went to Europe, to festivals. We stayed at the Polaris yesterday. That feeling Well. I’m happy.
Remember that artistic categories refer to albums, artists, or shows, while industrial categories refer to companies (record labels, production teams, etc.), products (cover art, programs, events), and individuals (arrangements, production, sound recordings, etc. ) relate .).
Lisa LeBlanc follows Lenoir for artistic selections at five (in addition to one more for the realization of chic disco).
LeBlanc, in particular, is in the running for Félix for Female Interpreter of the Year. Opposite her are Roxane Bruneau, Cœur de pirate, Sarahmée and Klô Pelgag.

“We cannot stress enough the joy of seeing our three galas live in front of an audience,” commented Julie Gariépy, Executive Producer and Content Manager for the ADISQ Galas.
This year we received a record count, proof that artists never stopped creating, which, among other things, allows for the return of entertainment categories.
