The Brandt Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan was packed with music lovers tonight as the 2013 Juno Awards telecast brought some of Canada’s best and brightest stars out to perform, and to pick up their hardware.
It’s Canada’s night for music, and I’m live from Toronto as the 2013 Juno Awards are about to take over CTV from the Brandt Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan, with singer Michael Bublé hosting the big night of awards and performances.
The Juno Awards have returned to Toronto for the first time in eleven years, but 2011 marks an even bigger anniversary for the event, which celebrates 40 years of celebrating Canadian music this year.
Canada’s biggest artists rocked the Rock (that would be Newfoundland, for the record) as the 2010 Juno Awards telecast brought the music to the fans in St. John’s Mile One stadium.
The Arkells kicked off the 2010 Juno Gala Dinner and Awards earlier tonight where most of the statues were handed out prior to the live telecast that will air tomorrow night. The band were also one of the winners during the evening, walking away with the Juno for best new group.
Nominees for the 2010 Juno Awards were announced this week and not surprisingly Michael Bublé led the way with a total of six nominations for his album Crazy Love.
The Juno Awards are still on CTV, and I’m still watching, apparently. So far, not an outstanding year, but it has its moments.
Russell Peters and Michael Buble do a little comedy bit. “I’m Russell Peters and if I don’t get to host the Junos ‘Someone’s going to get hurt real bad’,” Buble jokes.
