TORONTO — Pop singer-songwriter Charlotte Cardin is leading the early winners as the pre-telecast Juno Awards get underway in Toronto.

The Montreal musician grabbed two awards at the industry ceremony: pop album of the year for her chart-topping “Phoenix” and single of the year for the pulsing burner “Meaningless.”

The singer accepted her second award with wide eyes and a moment of pause where she praised her fellow single of the year nominees, which included superstars the Weeknd and Justin Bieber.

Cardin is the leading six-time nominee at the Junos this year, which began handing out awards at the so-called “opening night” ceremony on Saturday before Sunday’s telecast.
