With five nods, Arcade Fire leads with the most nominations at the 2018 Juno Awards. But this isn't the Montreal band's first time dominating the Junos. Back in 2011, they took home four big awards for album of the year, alternative album of the year, songwriter of the year and group of the year. 

While 2011 wasn't their first time being nominated for or winning a Juno, it was the first year the band made an appearance at the live ceremony. Below, we take a look back at their first win of that night, for group of the year. 

Watch as members Win and Will Butler greet presenter Deadmau5 with kisses, and thank a number of bands they came up in the Canadian music scene with, including Wolf Parade, The Unicorns, and The Hidden Cameras. Will Arcade Fire be able to repeat their success at this year's Juno Awards?
