The JUNOs eh? The biggest night in Canadian music is taking place this Sunday in Calgary. 2015 was a big year for Canadian artists, from Drake’s viral video for Hotline Bling and The Weeknd’s success with hits like Earned It. The show will be hosted by singer Jann Arden and former Olympian Jon Montgomery, and will feature performances by Alessia Cara, Shawn Mendes, and Bryan Adams to name a few. With such an epic show in store, we decided to whip up a guide on how you can watch the JUNOs like a true Canadian.
Get out your Hudson’s Bay blanket because you need to be prepared to watch the JUNOs in true Canucks fashion. A party without decorations is just plain lame, so from napkins to streamers, we’ve got you covered on what you need to have a truly red-and-white experience.
When watching a long awards show you’re going to need to keep your guests well fed with an arsenal of yummy treats. We still don’t know where exactly you could work maple syrup into the feast, but regardless these, Canadian treats are sure to please.
The Canadian delicacies above are sure to make your guests a little bit thirsty, we’ve got them covered. For your guests who are of age, there’s the Canadian Caesar (no, we don’t call it a Bloody Mary here). Alternatively, you can serve sweetened iced tea (unlike the cold tea they give you south of the border). Your guests will be all aboot these refreshing beverages.
Now this is where we really want you to showcase your Canadian pride. Get out the gear you have left over from Canada Day and grab some western wear to celebrate the host city Calgary. You’ll wow everyone at your party without a doubt.
Music is an integral part of celebrating the JUNOs, it is a music awards show after all. In order to get your guests pumped for the show you have to play the right tunes. Be sure to check out our JUNOs playlist for some inspiration, but whatever Canadian artists you chose, you can’t forget our Canadian anthem Sorry by Justin Bieber.
The show will be broadcast live from Calgary’s Saddledome Sunday, April 3 at 7E/4P on CTV and CTV GO.
