8 Celebs You Might Spot in Toronto This Weekend for the JUNO Awards

The JUNO Awards are taking over Toronto this weekend, and that means there will be a ton of celebrities walking the streets of the 6ix – so you might just be able to spot one.

On Sunday, May 15, the Canadian awards ceremony will take place on the Budweiser stage, which will feature musical performances and special appearances from some of the country’s biggest celebrities.

Music aficionados can still grab tickets to the JUNO Awards, or you can take your chance to see one of these eight celebs this weekend.

Simu Liu is coming back to the 6ix and he’s going to host this year’s JUNO awards. The shang chie star just finished a family vacation, and is already in Toronto to start his own book tour for his memoirs, we were dreamers (so you may want to keep your eyes peeled!)
