William Shatner to host the JUNO Awards

The JUNO Award nominees were announced today...big day for those in the Canadian music industry and it was also announced that William Shatner was going to be hosting this year's awards in Ottawa.
Oh Bill. That man sure is getting around. I feel like he past his first prime and is now coming into his second...like Betty White, only cooler.

I am super excited for the New Group category which includes Calgary natives Braids, now based out of Montreal; Hey Rosetta!; The Rural Alberta Advantage; Mother Mother and the winner of the Rolling Stones cover contest, Saskatchewan's The Sheepdogs. Not a bad list if you ask me.

Unfortunately, Nickelback put out an album which means that they were nominated for awards - four to be exact. That ties them with the most nominations with Feist, Dan Mangan, Drake, Hedley and City and Colour. Nickelcrack will also be performing, double unfortunate.

If you are in the Ottawa area and want to see some rad performers (along with the ear bleed that is Nickelback), tickets go on sale on Friday Feb 10 and range from $64 - $213.
