Last year’s Juno Awards had problems even before it began, when horde Michael Buble had to step down as a horde after family issues arose, yet this year he was front and centre of a show, and even started a night off with some good news. The thespian announced early on that he and his mother were awaiting their third child. And that wasn’t a finish of a positivity showcased via a evening. 

When Arcade Fire’s Win Butler took a theatre to explain a Album of a Year Award for Everything News, he stated “I only wish that we can all arise above negativity in a lives and only do what we trust in. Speak your law and don’t be fearful to only do whatever a ruin we want.”

Gord Downie’s brothers Mike and Patrick continued a moving difference when they supposed his post-mortem Artist of a Year award.  “If we’ve schooled anything from Gord it was a value of holding caring of any other,” Patrick said. “This is Gord’s award. It’s artist of a year, yet he was a male of a lifetime. I’d like to trust we’re all improved artists and people since of him. We adore we Gord and we’re all holding good caring of any other.” The adore towards Downie was also felt progressing on during a special reverence to a late singer, that was led by Sarah Harmer and Dallas Green, alongside Barenaked Ladies keyboardist Kevin Hearn.

The other large prominence of a dusk was of march a initiation of a Backnaked Ladies into a Canadian Music Hall of Fame. The organisation reunited with former bandmate Steven Page to accept a award, and even sealed out a promote with a montage of their hits One Week and If we Had $1,000,000. Page left a organisation to pursue a solo career behind in 2009. Before they could finish their montage though, Jann Arden, Jim Cuddy, The Jerry Cans and a Northern Touch All-Stars assimilated them sing-along.

The other winners for a dusk were: RB/Soul Recording of a Year: Freudian by Daniel Caesar,  Breakthrough Artist of a Year: Jessie Reyez, Rap Recording of a Year: Shooters by Tory Lanez and Juno Fan Choice: Shawn Mendes.
