If you were watching the Super Bowl XLVII broadcast last night you might have seen a familiar face. Actually, you might have seen three familiar faces: Michael Bublé, Chad Kroeger, and Avril Lavigne. Playing off the power couple known as Chavril, Michael takes this opportunity to tell the duo and the rest of Canada that he’ll be hosting the 2013 JUNO Awards which will be held at Regina’s Brandt Centre.
The hilarious promo is only a prelude to the exciting and entertaining night we’ll have with Bublé and the best of Canada’s musical talent. And another thing we can look forward to? Michael will also be announcing more details surrounding his fifth studio album and will be performing the first single at the JUNOS! Pulling double duty hosting and performing? What can’t this crooner do?
Be sure to watch the 2013 JUNO Awards airing Sunday, April 21 from the Brandt Centre in Regina on CTV. Tickets for the JUNOS go on sale on Friday morning, Feb 22 at 11E/8P and are available through the Evraz Place Box Office, by phone at 1-800-970-7328, and online at www.ticketmaster.ca. Nominations for the 2013 JUNO Awards will be announced on February 19, with further news on performers, presenters, and tickets to follow in the coming weeks.
Watch Michael interrupt Chad and Avril’s quality time for his JUNOS announcement here and tell us what you think in the comments section below!
Chad Kroeger jokes he sounds like “a lawnmower” compared to “songbird” Avril Lavigne. The Nickelback frontman thinks his voice is particularly grating compared to his fiancée, who he recently worked with on her as-yet-untitled fifth album, but he would still let her perform with his band. He joked “I sound like lawnmower and she’s like a songbird. But I think she could stand in for me some nights you know, I’d kick her in the windpipe then send her off on to the stage.”
Kroeger also said he and Avril work fast in the studio and can write a song in “a matter of hours”. He exclusively told BANG Showbiz “We move so fast, the ideas just start coming so quickly, that’s also a lot of fun, you never want it to be slow and arduous and painful. It’s just nice when everyone gets really excited and it just turns into a steamroller. Within a matter of hours you’re sitting there listening to a rough form of the song and everybody is really excited about how it’s gonna turn out.”
