It’s been a tough few months for the Beliebers, and last night it didn’t getting any better. At the JUNO Awards — which is Canada’s equivalent to the Grammys — Leonard Cohen topped Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, and deadmau5 to win the award for Artist of the Year.

Here’s the obligatory linking to absurd tweets made by Bieber fans in the aftermath of his heartbreaking, totally unfair defeat.

Hi, kids. To help answer your question, here’s a good starting point:

Last night’s other big winners included The Weeknd, who won both Breakthrough Artist of the Year and R&B/Soul Recording of the Year. Meanwhile, Grimes claimed Electronic Album of the Year, and Metric won Alternative Album of the Year. And, of course, Mumford and Sons were awarded International Album of the Year.
