Alessia Cara Will Host 2020 Juno Awards While Leading Nominations
TORONTO — Before Alessia Cara steps into hosting responsibilities at this year’s Juno Awards in Saskatoon, she hopes to lean on beloved crooner Michael Buble for a little advice.The 23-year-old pop singer from Brampton, Ont., — who also leads with six nominations at the biggest celebration of Canadian music — says Buble, who’s played master of ceremonies twice, stands out as the Junos host with the most.“I love how Michael Buble does anything,” Cara said Tuesday after the Juno nominees were revealed in Toronto.“The way he speaks to people on his tour is so great, it sounds like he’s even hosting there. I’ll get in contact with him.”Cara and Buble have a few things in common when it comes to the Junos.For one, they’ll both compete for album of the year, as he’s nominated for his covers collection “Love,” while she’s in the running with “The Pains of Growing,” a project that’s especially close to her.“I wrote this record all by myself,” Cara said. “It was the first time I’ve really done that.”The Grammy-winning “Scars to Your Beautiful” singer is also nominated for the songwriter award, Juno Fan Choice, pop album, artist of the year and single of the year for “Out of Love.”Aside from her musical accolades, Cara is now the second-youngest to host the Junos, coming in behind pop brothers the Moffatts who were still in their teens when they hosted in 2000. She also squeaks by Drake who hosted the show when he was 24.Other Juno album of the year nominees include works from neoclassical pianist Alexandra Streliski, Bryan Adams, and Toronto rapper Nav.Cara’s fellow single of the year nominees include German-Canadian singer Bulow, nee Megan Bulow, for “Sweet Little Lies,” and Oshawa, Ont.,-raised singer and “Nashville” TV star Lennon Stella with “La Di Da.” Scott Helman’s “Hang Ups” and Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s steamy “Senorita” round out the category.The 49th Juno Awards will air on CBC from the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon on March 15.Tory Lanez trails closely behind Cara with five nominations, including rap recording for “Freaky,” and R&B/Soul recording for “Chixtape 5.” The Toronto rapper is also among the acts up for artist of the year, alongside Adams, Jessie Reyez, and Shawn Mendes.Among the other Juno contenders with multiple nominations are Adams, Bulow, Nav and Mendes, who have three each.Breakthrough artist nominees are Streliski, singer Ali Gatie, rapper bbn$ (pronounced “baby no money”), Lennon Stella and Nashville performer Tenille Townes, who grew up in Grande Prairie, Alta.Several notable Canadian artists were snubbed by the Junos, including acclaimed rapper Haviah Mighty whose album “13th Floor” won the Polaris Music Prize, and Haisla rap duo Snotty Nose Rez Kids who received the best reviews of their careers with “Trapline” last year. Pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen also didn’t get any love for her album “Dedicated.”Junos president Allan Reid said Drake continued his long-standing practice of not submitting his work to any of the categories, which meant various releases, including one dedicated to the Toronto Raptors’ NBA championship victory, were not considered. Others artists on his label OVO Sound also went unrecognized.The first round of Juno Awards performers announced for the broadcast include Tory Lanez, Daniel Caesar, Lennon Stella, and the Glorious Sons.And other honourees on the show will include singer Jann Arden, who’s being inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.Cara could draw on Arden’s extensive Junos knowledge too, if she sees fit, since the prolific singer, TV personality and actress has stepped into the spotlight as both host and co-host of the event over the years.And when it comes down to it, Cara is downplaying her Canadian hosting experience a bit.Back in 2017, alongside Joe Jonas she co-hosted the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards, a street party fuelled by the energy of mostly teenagers.RELATED Shania Twain Wrote A Duet To Sing With Lizzo And We Need It Now All The Reasons Jann Arden Is A Canadian Treasure This Is What Alanis Sounds Like As A Broadway Musical While the Junos are quite a different televised affair, one that celebrates many generations and genres of music, Cara says she picked up a few lessons the first go-around at the MMVAs.“You’ve got to really get into a zone. It’s a different zone than singing. You have to be in a mode of entertainment in a different way, talk loud enough, be funny, don’t talk too fast,” she said.“There’s a lot more that goes into it than just standing up there and talking — there’s so much preparation.”This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 28, 2020.Listen to a playlist of 2020 Juno Award nominees on Spotify: This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 28, 2020.

126 Canadians Quarantined In China Asked Global Affairs For Help
OTTAWA — Foreign Affairs Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne said Tuesday Ottawa is “looking at all options” to help Canadians quarantined in China during the outbreak of a new coronavirus.China began drastic containment efforts to limit the spread of the virus last week, cutting plane, train and bus links to Wuhan, a city of more than 11 million people. Several other nearby cities have been quarantined since, cutting off an estimated 19 million people.Champagne said 250 Canadians have registered with Global Affairs Canada to say they are in Wuhan and 126 of them have asked for help to get home. He said his officials are trying to contact each one of them to assess their needs.“Every Canadian that has reached out to us for consular assistance will receive it,” he said.He said Canada will tailor its response based on what it finds after all the Canadians asking for help have been contacted.He noted the number of Canadians seeking help keeps changing as more and more people register via the Global Affairs Canada website — the previous day, the number of Canadians registered in the region was 167.Champagne said help could include sending a plane to fly them home, but that Canada is also working with other countries in similar situations. Canada doesn’t have a diplomatic office in Wuhan but other countries do and are evacuating their workers. In some cases, others of their citizens are leaving alongside the diplomats.Champagne said Canada is in contact with the Chinese government about making sure Canada can help its citizens.Health Minister Patty Hajdu says she doesn’t yet know whether any of the Canadians in quarantine in China are sick or would be quarantined in Canada if they do come home.Not all Canadians in the affected part of China want to leave.Wayne Duplessis, working in China as a teacher, says he and his family are hunkered down in their home just outside of Wuhan’s city centre. He, his wife, Emily Tjandra, and their 15-year-old son Wyatt have spent the last two weeks chatting with people online, watching videos, movies, and the news, and listening to music.Duplessis said in a Skype interview that he doesn’t want to spend hours in the air with people who could be sick.Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s chief medical officer, has said symptoms of the new coronavirus are similar to those of the common flu and it can take up to two weeks for an infected person to start showing signs.Duplessis is originally from Espanola, Ont., and he teaches at Wuhan Optics Valley Weiming Experimental School. He said he thinks it’s best to wait it out in Wuhan “no matter how difficult that is.”His advice is to maintain routine.“Get up in the morning, make your bed, brush your teeth, make breakfast, so some things are the same way every day...follow that routine so there is a structure to your day.”Here is my statement regarding travel to #Hubei Province in #China. #coronarviruspic.twitter.com/pwQn4lUyDa— François-Philippe Champagne (FPC)
