Rihanna was victorious at Canada's Juno Awards last night (06.04.08).
The singer's LP 'Good Girl Gone Bad' won International Album of the Year at the ceremony which took place at Calgary's Pengrowth Saddledome.
Rihanna fought off stiff competition from Fergie, Bon Jovi, Josh Groban and Timbaland to land the accolade.
New Canadian singing sensation Feist picked up a remarkable five awards on the night.
As Feist took to the stage to collect her first statuette, Single of the Year for hit '1234', she said: "I wrote down a load of stuff to say on my arm. Should I try to chip through it?"
Later, when her LP 'The Reminder' was named Pop Album of the Year, she added: "I am so grateful. I forgot to say that last time."
Feist, 32, also walked away with Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Songwriter of the Year.
Michael Buble had been nominated for five prizes, but only picked up the Juno Fan Choice Award.
