Whether you watch for the stars, the music, or the shenanigans, the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards brought all three together on Sunday night as Psy co-hosted the event and performed his hits "Gangnam Style" and "Gentleman" to the packed crowd at the corner of Queen and John.
Let's look back, little monsters, on the night that was the 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards. This is what I'd call a capsule review of my evening, and it was filled with Lady Gaga, a little Selena Gomez, and a hint of self-loathing.
Welcome to my 12th annual Juno Awards coverage. That's right, I've been covering the Junos since 2000 when they were last in Toronto, but I've only been to the awards five times, including tonight. The special oddity of the night though is that this is the first year I've actually watched the show live. This should be interesting.
It's just before 4pm and that means it's not long before I leave for the Juno telecast at the Air Canada Centre. I've been covering the Juno Awards for 11 years now, but the big difference this year is that I'm actually going to be watching the show for the first time ever instead of being in the media room.
On Tuesday, February 1, Canadaian musicians were in the spotlight once again as the list of nominees were revealed for the 2011 Juno Awards, which will celebrate their 40th anniversary by bringing the festivities back to Toronto for the first time in eleven years.
Give the folks a hand, they know how to throw a party. For the umpteenth time I attended the annual MuchMusic Video Awards, and while there are always a few bumps on the road, it was an incredible event once again. Most notably I was blown away by how many screaming fans they were able to pack around the stages and on the street at the corner of Queen and John.
Toronto fans were reduced to screaming throngs tonight as the annual MuchMusic Video Awards brought together some of the biggest names in music for a gigantic block party that shut down the corner of Queen and John streets in downtown Toronto.
