On March 30th, 2014, Winnipeg will host the 2014 Juno Awards at the MTS Centre.  The evening will be c0-hosted by Nova Scotian rapper Classified, singer-songwriter Serena Ryder and Scottish-Canadian country artist Johnny Reid. Classified and Ryder are expected to co-perform a song to open the ceremony. Others scheduled to perform include R&B crooner Robin Thicke, indie duo Tegan and Sara, Saskatoon rockers The Sheepdogs, and breakthrough country musician Brett Kissel.

Classified will lend a hand in hosting, but may bring home some hardware for himself.

Starting today and leading up to the official broadcast on Sunday, CCM will look at all the award categories and nominees. As well, CCM will offer their own staff predictions! Let’s start off by looking at all the categories where the awarded are People.
