Feist accepts Polaris Prize money (via BrooklynVegan Instagram)
Feist

BV photographer Dominick Mastrangelo headed straight from Pop Montreal to Toronto today to witness the 2012 Polaris Prize gala where Feist was just announced as this year's big Canadian winner (for her album "Metals"). She beat Cadence Weapon, Cold Specks, Drake, Kathleen Edwards, Fucked Up, Grimes, Handsome Furs, Japandroids, and Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, many of whom performed at the awards show tonight. Stay tuned for more pictures from that (and for the rest of our Pop Montreal coverage coming soon too).

Update: a much closer-up picture of the above scene, members of Arcade Fire included, below...

LAME...while i do like her music, that last album was pretty tuneless. nothing stuck with you from it. HANDSOME FURS had the best album on that list, hands down. however, i figured they'd give it to kathleen edwards

No amount of money will ever make her in the least bit interesting......

I heard Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize as well (before he did a single thing). So that just shows how much these awards actually mean.

Aren't cash prizes the sort of thing that should be reserved for starving, up and coming artists? This bitch has a belly full of eggs benedict.
