Daniel Bélanger and Patrice Michaud each won a pair of Félix awards at the 2017 ADISQ gala which recognizes the best music coming out of the industry in the province of Quebec. Daniel who was the favourite coming into the soiree in Montreal won the awards for Singer-Songwriter Show of the Year and for Pop Album of the Year thanks to his album Paloma. Patrice picked up the coveted award for Song of the Year thanks to megahit “Kamikaze”, and he was also named Male Artist of the Year.

Klô Pelgag added a third trophy to her 2017 collection (she won two at the Permier ADISQ gala on Thursday night), this time for Composer of the Year recognizing her work on album L’étoile thoracique. Big names Leonard Cohen and Céline Dion picked up awards, the former was given the Honourary Félix trophy and the latter took Adult Contemporary Album of the Year for multiplatinum Encore un soir.
