Bryan Adams & Russell Peters Named 2017 Juno Award Co-hosts

After weeks of speculation, Juno Award organizers have made it official. Michael Buble won’t be hosting the awards ceremony on April 2nd, at Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre. Michael Buble and his wife chose to put their careers on hold last fall after their 3-year old son Noah was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Just today, we learned that rocker Bryan Adams and comedian Russell Peters will be co-hosting next month’s Juno Awards.

The Junos have paired hosts in the past. Last year’s Calgary show was hosted by Jann Arden and the “Amazing Race Canada’s” Jon Montgomery. The 2014 event had three musicians, Classified, Johnny Reid, and Serena Ryder. Russell Peters has emceed the Juno’s a couple of times himself, in Calgary in 2008, and a year later in Vancouver. Some good news… Michael Buble recently released a statement saying his son Noah was “progressing well” from his treatment. “The doctors are very optimistic about the future for our little boy,” he added. By the way, if you’d like to attend the big award show on Sunday, April 2nd, Juno Award tickets are available through ticket master, starting at $39.
