This marks his first appearance at the JUNOS since 2010. The superstar has been nominated for 27 JUNO Awards throughout his career, winning seven times with recognition for his albums Changes, Purpose, My World and Under the Mistletoe. Canadians will find out whether he will add more JUNO statuettes to his shelf during The 2021 JUNO Awards, which will be broadcast nationwide Sunday, June 6 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBC TV, CBC Gem, CBC Radio One, CBC Music, CBC Listen, globally on cbcmusic.ca/junos and live-streamed on CBC Music’s TikTok, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter pages.
