Dragonette wins best dance recording at the 2012 Junos, ending DeadMau5’s winning streak

For the last four years, DeadMau5 has won the Juno for best dance recording of the year, but last night Martina Sorbara (of electronic dance outfit Dragonette) and Martin Solveig took home the honour for their hit “Hello.” When the Globe asked Joel Zimmerman (DeadMau5) how he felt about the loss, he claimed to be fine with it because he’s toured with Solveig and he’s a “super-talented, wicked-cool guy.” He also went on to say that Solveig is “a really cool dude. I guess he kind of deserves [a Juno]—and if Dragonette had a hand in that, then yay.” We imagine he’s cool with the win because there was no mention of Molly in the song or the acceptance speech.
