Carly Rae Jepsen and Fefe Dobson hit the stage during the CHUM FanFest at the 2012 Slacker Canadian Music Week in Toronto, Canada on Friday night (March 23).
The two Canadian cuties performed their hit songs, “Call Me Maybe” and “Stuttering” for the packed crowds.
Canadian Music Fest spans 5 nights of performances, with more than 800 showcasing bands at 60 live music venues in downtown Toronto.
Fefe, 27, also took home three awards from the festival including the Fan Choice Award and Chart Topper Award. “Thanks to all my amazing fans for voting! We won 3 Radio Music Awards!!! :)” she tweeted.

Fefe Dobson goes back to the basics in her new video for “I Can’t Breathe.”
The 26-year-old Canadian musician recently sat down to chat with the Global Grind about touring, music and more. Check it:
On the most annoying part of the music industry: “I think that there are so many amazing artists out there that can’t get a chance to break through because we listen to the same artists all the time. We only hear the same artists all the time. I think what frustrates me is that the artists out there that are really super, super talented that write their own songs, that produce their own music, don’t get a chance in the mainstream world. We listen to the same couple of artists over and over and whatever we’re given on radio. There’s more out there.”
On if she’s working on new stuff: “I’m always writing. I’m on tour right now but I’m constantly thinking of melodies and writing and stuff like that. It never stops really. It’s a muscle so I try to keep it working, try to strengthen it. But yes, I am always writing and working on music.”
On her tour with These Kids Where Crowns: “We’re hitting all the spots throughout Canada. It’s a Canadian tour so we’re hitting all the spots. I think in between we’re gonna go to Vegas April 9th to do a radio show here and there and do more shows in the U.S. It’s gonna be a whirlwind but it’s exciting.”
Fefe Dobson sings her heart out as she performs at CHUM FM’s Wish Breakfast held at the Masonic Temple in Toronto late last week.
The 25-year-old musician also performed at Entertainment WeeklyLounge in West Hollywood earlier this month where she dished on not loving autotune. Fefe shared, “I really try to fight it as much as I can, and sometimes Iâ€™ll beg the producer, like, â€˜Please donâ€™t use it on me!â€™ Iâ€™ll just re-sing it over and over until I get it.”
Fefe added about the music she’s making, “Iâ€™m just feeling it. Itâ€™s still rock & roll, but you have to add elements sometimes â€¦ to make it speak to what music is at this point.
Fefe‘s new record, Joy, is out in stores NOW!
