It's Canada's time to shine! The 2020 Juno Awards are almost upon us and seeing as it's Canada's biggest night in music, you can expect to see plenty of our country's biggest stars under the same roof.
The award show is taking place this Sunday, March 15 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan at the SaskTel Centre. The evening will be hosted by none other than Grammy-award winning singer Alessia Cara and will include unforgettable performances from artists of several different genres.
It's no secret that when artists go on tour, they tend to skip over prairie provinces like Saskatchewan, but with the Junos showing them some love this year, there's no telling how many celebrities will be in the city this coming weekend.
Dozens of artists have been nominated for awards in all different categories, including everyone from OG favourites like Justin Bieber and Avril Lavigne to up and coming stars like Ali Gatie and Loud Luxury.
