The JUNO Awards are happening this evening, and here is everything you need to know about Canada’s biggest night in music.

Celebrating its 50th year anniversary, the JUNO Awards will be taking place in various music venues throughout Canada, to comply with health and safety measures. Typically, the JUNO Awards are found under one roof, where fans and entertainers alike can all celebrate the amazing music that Canadian artists have to offer. Despite the change of location, the celebrations will be sure to run strong throughout the night.

Some of the biggest names in the music industry (The Biebs, Mme Dion, Drizzy, etc.) are up for major awards like Album of the Year, Single of the Year, Artist of the Year, and so on. That being said, we’re looking forward to seeing which Canadian artist will be walking away with Artist of the Year, as this year’s music couldn’t have been more thrilling:

The Weeknd leads artists this year with six JUNO Award nominations, followed by Jessie Reyez, and Justin Bieber. Throughout the night, we’re expecting to see appearances by Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies, Feist, Gordon Lightfoot, Jessie Reyez, JP Saxe, Julia Michaels, Jully Black, Max Kerman from Arkells, Michael Bublé, Paul Brandt, Sarah McLachlan, Serena Ryder, Shania Twain, Tate McRae, members of The Tragically Hip, Will Arnett, and so on.
