Tonight: 2014 Polaris Music Prize Gala

Tonight's the night! After much jury deliberation, the coveted Polaris Music Prize will be awarded to one deserving Canadian artist later this evening in Toronto. Here are the lucky artists who comprise the short list:

Arcade Fire – Reflektor
Basia Bulat – Tall Tall Shadow
Mac DeMarco – Salad Days
Drake – Nothing Was The Same
Jessy Lanza – Pull My Hair Back
Owen Pallett – In Conflict
Shad – Flying Colours
Tanya Tagaq – Animism
Timber Timbre – Hot Dreams

In my opinion, this is a pretty tough list to choose from, but based on the amount of listening I've done to all of these (a considerable amount) - I want the award to go to this guy below. I just love him, and I can't wait to watch is performance tonight.

Who do you want to take the Polaris Music Prize home? Leave a comment, tweet @PolarisPrize or use the official #Polaris2014 hashtag.
