Watch the Weeknd, Whitehorse, Alessia Cara and More Perform at the 2016 Junos
Published Apr 04, 2016Last night (April 3), Canada honoured some of this country's biggest musical accomplishments at the 2016 Juno Awards. The Weeknd was the night's big winner with five awards, while acts like Alessia Cara, Justin Bieber, Whitehorse, Dear Rouge and Death From Above 1979 also managed to scoop up some prizes.
A handful of those winners were on hand at the ceremony in Calgary to perform live, and now you can relive some of that footage.
The Weeknd busted out Beauty Behind the Madness cuts "Acquainted" and "Might Not," while Alessia Cara proved that she deserved her title of Breakthrough Artist of the Year with live renditions of "Here" and "Wild Things." Breakthrough Group of the Year Dear Rouge were also at the event, delivering "I Heard I Had" for the crowd, with Lights going acoustic for a special stripped-down performance of "Running with the Boys."
Catering to a more mature audience, Adult Alternative Album of the Year winners Whitehorse churned out "Tame as the Wild One," while the evening came to an end with a star-studded tribute to Burton Cummings. Artists like Jann Arden, Shawn Hook and the Tenors paid homage to his career before the man himself came out with his backing band the Carpet Frogs to blaze through classic "My Own Way to Rock."
Check out all of those performances below.
