Mississauga, Ontario's Billy Talent were the big winners in the 2007 edition of the MuchMusic video awards. The band, along with Nickelback, led the nominations with five nods each. The group won honors for top video, the MuchLoud top rock video for "Fallen Leaves" and the people's choice award for top Canadian band.
Avril Lavigne won the best international video by a Canadian for "Girlfriend" and the fan-voted favorite Canadian artist title, the even featured performances from Billy Talent, Hilary Duff, Alexisonfire, Maroon 5, Belly, the Used and Finger Eleven.
The annual event is held by MuchMusic, a music television network covering most of Canada. The Quebec equivalent, MusiquePlus recently announced sponsorship of the Fat Wreck Chords Canadian tour.
