Juno broadcast lineup finalized
Details have been finalized for Sunday night’s Juno Awards broadcast — including the tribute to Canadian Hall of Music Fame inductees Bachman Turner-Overdrive that will close out the show.
The tribute will feature The Sheepdogs along with several 2014 Juno nominees, including East Coast rocker Matt Mays, country rocker Tim Hicks and Sadies guitarist Travis Good. The group will perform BTO’s classic 1973 hits, Let It Ride and Takin’ Care of Business. All four members of BTO are expected to be in attendance.
Several other performances have also been announced, including a world première mash-up performance by Classified, performing Three Foot Tall, and Serena Ryder performing What I Wouldn’t Do. Tegan and Sara will perform their smash-hit Closer with a choir consisting of fans from across North America, led by Toronto-based group Choir! Choir! Choir!, who delighted at the 2013 Polaris Music Prize gala. Viral-video sensations Walk Off The Earth will team up with Winnipeg’s all-female hand-drum group, Red Robe Women’s Drum Society. Arcade Fire will take part in the broadcast with an exclusive, television première, taped performance from South America. Other previously announced performers include Brett Kissel, Dean Brody, Gord Bamford, OneRepublic, Robin Thicke and Sarah McLachlan.
Several more presenters have also been added to the roster, including Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy and Trevor Guthrie, both nominees. They join A Tribe Called Red, Chantal Kreviazuk and Raine Maida, July Talk, Kardinal Offishall, The Sadies, Sarah McLachlan, Shad, Small Town Pistols, astronaut Chris Hadfield, Canadian Heritage Minister Shelly Glover and the 2014 Olympic gold-medal curling team skipped by Jennifer Jones.
Co-hosted by Classified, Johnny Reid, and Serena Ryder, The Juno Awards airs live, Sunday, March 30 on CTV at 8 p.m.
