Michael Bublé | Singer, songwriter Mr. Bublé will be watching the game live in Rogers Arena. The crooner has watched almost every game this year, either live or on his computer when he's travelling outside of Canada. Mr. Bublé had a concert scheduled in Connecticut tonight, but moved it to the 16th just to be at the game.

Drake, fresh off two Grammy nominations, will compete for single of the year (Best I Ever Had), new artist of the year, and a double nomination in the category of rap recording of the year.

Finally, singer-songwriter Johnny Reid - who was born in Scotland, raised in Toronto and now lives in Nashville - is up for fan choice, album of the year, artist of the year and country album of the year.

Bryan Adams is slated to receive a humanitarian award and April Wine will be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

Comedian Russell Peters has hosted the show for the last two years, but a spokeswoman for the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences confirmed that the funnyman would not be back for this year's festivities.

Instead, the Junos will use several hosts.
