The following post comes to us from Billboard Canada’s Richard Trapunski.


The Canadian singer will make the Junos part of her comeback, joining fellow performers Maestro Fresh Wes, The Beaches and Charlotte Cardin.

Furtado's comeback includes a stop at the 2024 Juno Awards in Halifax. The Canadian singer will host and perform at the music awards broadcast, which will air on CBC on March 24.

This year, Furtado returned with her first new music in six years, first teaming up with Dom Dolla and then with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, whom she topped the charts with a decade and a half ago. She's poised for a big return to her mid-2000s peak, around the last time she hosted the Junos. At the 2007 ceremony, she took MC duties and became the first artist with multiple nominations to win every award she was nominated for.

Furtado won't be the only Canadian legend onscreen at this year's broadcast. Maestro Fresh Wes will be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. The rapper, recently recognized by the Slaight Family Polaris Heritage Prize, will also perform at the show. Long-running indie pop duo Tegan and Sara, meanwhile, will receive the 2024 Humanitarian Award from actor Elliot Page. For more on this story, please click on the link to Billboard Canada.
