2012 Félix Award Winners, Part 1

The first of two-part Félix Awards galas was held tonight, Monday October 22, 2012, at the St-Denis Theatre in Montréal. The Felix Awards are given out by ADISQ, the recording industry in Québec, dating from 1979 due to the lack of representation of Francophone music at the JUNO Awards.
