Canada’s Juno Awards Ceremony set for March 30, 2014. The evening ceremony honors the best Canadian artists and their albums by Canada’s most coveted music award.
Much like Canada and the U.S. share a collective international border at Niagara Falls, our two countries share similar qualities when it comes to each country’s most prestigious music award ceremonies.
Scheduled on the weekend of March 29, March 30, 2014 Canada’s most prestigious music award ceremony honoring top artists will be televised live at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Much like the United States process to determine GRAMMY® Awards, Canada’s Juno Awards are decided by either a designated selection process or selections determined by voting members of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS).
New members are inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame during the ceremony, which will include legendary rock group Bachman-Turner Overdrive. The designated hosts for the ceremony are: Classified, Johnny Reid, and Serena Ryder.
Popular artists are scheduled to perform including ceremony hosts Classified and singer, songwriter Serena Ryder. Additional artists set to perform are as follows; Gord Bamford, Dean Brody, Brett Kissell, Matt Mays, The Sheepdogs, Tegan and Sara, Robin Thicke, Walk off the Earth.
There are 44 Juno Award Categories this year, and comparable to the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), Juno awards are presented as primarily Album of the Year or Artist of the Year. This change in award category terminology, which took place in 2003, was previous phrased as Best Album or Best Artist of the Year.
The Juno Awards Ceremony is televised live on the CTV Television Network each year. It’s unclear if the majority of Americans will have televised access of the live broadcast.
On March 30, 2014 you can visit CTV.ca to see if a streaming broadcast video of the ceremony is shown live. In the past the American Television Network MTV2 broadcast previous Juno Awards Ceremonies so American satellite and cable viewers may be able to watch the ceremony on the MTV2 channel.
For Canadian persons familiar with the Juno Awards nominees the chances of selecting the correct lineup of winning artists are identical to their American counterpart trying to guess the outcome of the GRAMMY® Awards. But in equal terms is an evening celebration filled with anticipation and excitement of who will win Canada’s Artist of the Year or Album of the Year!
