WILLIAM SHATNER TO HOST JUNO AWARDS IN OTTAWA
"Star Trek" icon William Shatner has been named the host of the upcoming Juno Awards in Ottawa.
CTV made the announcement this morning as the nominees were revealed.
Picking Shatner to oversee the awards is a generational shift from last year, when the show was hosted by Toronto rapper Drake.
This year's awards gala will be held April 1 at Ottawa's Scotiabank Place and will be broadcast on CTV.
Performers scheduled for the show include Toronto-based indie songstress Feist, electronic producer Deadmau5 and City & Colour.
Toronto roots-rock outfit Blue Rodeo will also perform on the same night that the veteran band is being inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
This year's show will also mark the addition of a new category honouring the best metal/hard music album of the year. Visit: www.ottawatourism.ca.
Tickets: (613) 599-FANS (3267), (toll free) at 877-788-FANS (3267) or online at www.capitaltickets.ca.
