The Juno Awards return to the stage tonight with a little help from a Marvel superhero.
Canadian actor and “Shang-Chi” star Simu Liu will host this year’s celebration of local music in Toronto with performances by Arcade Fire, Avril Lavigne and six-time nominee Charlotte Cardin.
It is the first in-person Junos show since the 2020 ceremony in Saskatoon was marred by the COVID-19 pandemic and turned into a virtual event. It will take place at the Budweiser Stage – an indoor and outdoor venue.
The winners for Album of the Year, Breakthrough Artist, Fans’ Choice and Rap Album of the Year will be revealed on the show.
The Juno Awards will be broadcast on CBC and broadcast on CBC Gem.
Most of the Junos were handed out Saturday night at an industry event where Montreal singer Charlotte Cardin emerged as the big winner with three awards including artist of the year and single of the year.
Toronto pop artist The Weeknd followed behind with two wins, including recording contemporary R&B for his single “Take My Breath.”
