The MY HAPPY ENDING singer, 20, was named Best Artist, Best Pop Album for UNDER MY SKIN and Fans' Choice for Canadian's most popular star.
Hip-hop star k-os, whose real name is KEVIN BRERETON, picked up Best Rap Recording for JOYFUL REBELLION, Best Single for CRABBUCKIT and Best Video for B-BOY STANC, at the glitzy ceremony in Winnipeg's MTS Centre.
CONSTANT CRAVING hitmaker Lang said, "If there is a beacon or a bastion of an artist who has maintained his integrity and his uncompromising vision and purity... it is Neil Young. So Neil, I sing this for you. Heal fast my friend."
Juno broadcaster JOHN BRUNTON said Young, who watched the awards from his hospital bed, had been moved by Lang's cover of his track HELPLESS.
Brunton lamented, "He actually teared up and thought it was one of the most beautiful things."
