After the success of 2010’s Junos, which brought in the biggest audience in the award show’s history and included performances by Drake, Justin Bieber, Metric, Michael Buble, Billy Talent, and K’Naan, it was difficult to imagine that 2011’s show could top the landmark year. But that was before today’s announcement.
Hip hop superstar Drake has been announced as the host of the 2011 Junos, airing on CTV on Sunday, March 27, live from the Air Canada Centre in Drake’s hometown of Toronto. Drake is joining a long line of hosts who have been hugely successful in their careers both at home in Canada and abroad, including Alanis Morissette, Shania Twain, The Barenaked Ladies, Pamela Anderson, Nelly Furtado and two-time host Russell Peters.
In the relatively short period that Drake has been making music he has become no stranger to award shows, winning two MMVAs, two Juno’s, and performing at the MMVAs, Junos, Grammy’s, the American Music Awards and the BET Awards. At 24, Drake is the youngest person to ever host the Junos.
