The Juno Awards were handed out last night in Ottawa. Two of the night's biggest winners were the Tragically Hip and its lead singer Gord Downie, who won for his solo project Secret Path, as well as the late Leonard Cohen. The latter also received a beautiful tribute performance by singer-songwriter Feist. 

If you didn't get a chance to watch the big ceremony, we will fill you in on everything that happened on today's show. 

Tom Power checks in with guest host Laurie Brown, to discuss all the biggest moments he witnessed in Ottawa while panellists Andrea Warner (CBC Music) and The Sheepdogs' frontman Ewan Currie take a deeper look at the best moments from yesterday's televised events and the gender disparity in Junos' history.
