Vancouver's Michael Bublé had a good year.

The crooner, who made a name for himself covering '50s jazz standards, saw his latest disc It's Time reach the six times platinum mark in Canada in June. It's Time sold over a million records in the U.S., was nominated for a Grammy, and garnered four Juno awards.

Bublé also made several TV appearances and collaborated with Tony Bennett for the legendary singer's next album. And since January, his tour has made over US$7 million.
