Michael Buble to host 2018 Juno Awards
Michael Buble is set to host the Canadian Juno Awards, which will be held this year at Rogers Arena in Vancouver on March 25th. The singer had been selected to host the music awards show last year but had to bow out when his son Noah was diagnosed with cancer and was replaced by Bryan Adams and Russell Peters.
“I’m so grateful for the opportunity to host such an iconic night in Canadian music,” Buble said in a statement. “To be able to host the Juno Awards in my hometown is both an honor and a privilege.” It’s not the first time the singer host the Junos, as he already did in 2013 in the city of Regina.
Buble has dominated the Canadian music awards over the years by winning in all 12 categories. The Junos, staged by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, will air on the CBC network this year, instead of CTV.
The Juno Awards are presented annually to Canadian musical artists and bands to acknowledge their artistic and technical achievements in all aspects of music. Winners are chosen by either members of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences or a panel of experts depending on the award.
