The JUNO Awards are taking over Toronto this weekend and that means there will be a slew of celebs walking the streets of the 6ix – so maybe you can spot one of them.
On Sunday, May 15, the Canadian Awards Ceremony will take place on the Budweiser Stage, where there will be musical performances and special appearances from some of the country’s biggest celebrities.
Music lovers can still snag tickets to the JUNO Awards, or you can take your chance to see if you can catch any of these eight celebs this weekend.
Canada’s pop-punk princess will not only present an award at this year’s JUNOs, but will also perform on the main stage. Avril Lavigne was in Toronto just a few weeks ago to surprise Olivia Rodrigo fans at a concert and sing “Complicated”.
Simu Liu returns to the 6ix and will host the JUNO Awards this year. The Shang Chi star just finished a family vacation and is already in Toronto to embark on his very own book tour for his memoir We Were Dreamers (so maybe keep your eyes peeled!).
Calling all Kim’s conveniencefans! There will be a Kimchee and Jung reunion on the main stage while Andrew Phung will present an award at the JUNOs.
Pickering’s own Shawn Mendes wins the International Achievement Award at this year’s JUNOs. It looks like Mendes was already in the 6ix when a video of him spotted with Director X in an Impact Kitchen circulated on Twitter.
While the Arkells are still on their Blink Once tour, they will be stopping in Toronto to perform with the JUNOs. The band has also been nominated for a couple of awards such as Group of the Year and Rock Album of the Year.
Mustafa will make his debut at the JUNO Awards this year. The singer, poet, and filmmaker is also nominated for Songwriter of the Year and Alternative Album of the Year (also his first-ever nominations from the JUNOs).
Montreal’s Charlotte Cardin takes a short break from her tour to drop by the JUNOs to sing on the main stage. With a total of six nominations, including Artist of the Year and Album of the Year, she also leads the list with the most nominations for the JUNO Award this year.
Arcade Fire will also be rocking out at the Canadian Music Awards show this year. The Montreal group just performed on Saturday Night Live with Benedict Cumberbatch.
