The short list for this year's Polaris Music Prize was revealed yesterday morning. Unfortunately, ONTD's fave Carly Rae Jepsen did not make the list. The winner will receive $50,000, while the other 9 finalists will receive $3000 each. The winner will be announced at a special gala in Toronto in September. Here are the 10 albums that made the list:
A Tribe Called Red – We Are The Halluci Nation
BADBADNOTGOOD – IV
Leonard Cohen – You Want It Darker
Gord Downie – Secret Path
Feist – Pleasure
Lisa LeBlanc – Why You Wanna Leave, Runaway Queen?
Lido Pimienta – La Papessa
Tanya Tagaq – Retribution
Leif Vollebekk – Twin Solitude
Weaves – Weaves
In more uplifting news, Carly performed Cut To The Feeling live for the first time in Chicago on Tuesday. The show was sponsored by M&Ms Chocolate so sis probably got paid $50,000 anyway!
