The Burnaby, B.C.-born Michael Bublé took home the Grammy for best traditional pop vocal album for his newest effort, Higher, while Toronto rapper Drake picked up the award for best melodic rap performance for his feature on Future's Wait for U.

Bublé shared a video to Twitter of his team informing him he had won a Grammy as he came off stage in Milan, Italy.

Montreal conductor and pianist Yannick Nézet-Séguin went home with two awards--one for best opera recording for Blanchard: Fire Shut Up In My Bones, and another for best classical solo vocal album for Voice Of Nature — The Anthropocene. Vancouver jazz artist Kris Davis and Matthew Stevens, another Canadian, were also recognized for best jazz instrumental album.
