See you March 15!”

 

 

Alessia shares, “For those of you who are hoping it was someone else like Shawn Mendes, I’m sorry, it is me. You’re stuck with me.  This is really, really exciting. I’m so excited to be a part of Canada’s biggest night in music in this way. This is the first time I’ve been the sole host of anything, so I hope I don’t disappoint. My first reaction was ‘Why?’ My second was ‘No way.’ And then my third was obviously ‘Yes’ because I’m here.  But yeah, I’m super excited. Thank you to everyone who decided that I can do this. I’m very, very honored.”

 

 

 

Alessia has previously won two JUNO awards, has been nominated 13 times and she will also take the stage to perform.  According to Billboard,For the past two decades, CARAS has moved the Junos from city to city each year. The 50th anniversary celebration will be in Toronto, where the show originated.”
