Juno Awards set to unfold in Toronto with host Simu Liu

TORONTO – 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 homegrown music in Toronto with performances from Arcade Fire, Avril Lavigne and leading six-time nominee Charlotte Cardin.

It’s the first in-person Junos show since the 2020 ceremony in Saskatoon was derailed by the COVID-19 pandemic and pivoted to a virtual event. It will take place at Budweiser Stage — a covered, outdoor venue.

Winners for album of the year, breakthrough artist, fan choice and rap album of the year will be revealed on the show.

The Juno Awards will broadcast on CBC and stream on CBC Gem.

Most of the Junos were handed out Saturday night at an industry event where Montreal singer Charlotte Cardin emerged 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 contemporary R&B recording for his single “Take My Breath.”
