The Northern Touch All-Stars reported Tory Lanez as the victor of the current year’s rap grant, however when he wasn’t around to acknowledge it, rapper Kardinal Offishall bounced in to ask the gathering of people an inquiry.

“Don’t all of you wish we had some more hip bounce in here today around evening time?” he said.

“I know this will botch up the Junos a tad – yet I couldn’t care less. Would you like to do ‘Northern Touch’ at the present time?

The gathering – which additionally incorporates rappers Red1, Misfit, Checkmate, Thrust and Choclair – then propelled into a full form of “Northern Touch,” which showed up on the Rascalz 1998 collection “Money Crop.”

Junos president Allan Reid recognized the minute was incompletely organized. He said the Junos coordinators moved toward the rap gather prior toward the evening with the thought.

One of the night’s other huge amazements wouldn’t have stunned talk magazine perusers.

Late newspaper hypothesis that Buble’s better half is pregnant turned into an official declaration on the show as the artist uncovered performing artist Luisana Lopilato is expecting their third youngster.

Barenaked Ladies and previous bandmate Steven Page were accepted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

In the wake of singing a concise tune as they acknowledged their honor, the band shut the communicate by propelling into some of their old hits, beginning with “One Week.” It was the first occasion when they’d performed with Page since he went solo about 10 years back.

The gathering wasn’t the only one in front of an audience for long, as it advanced into a top pick tribute, with visitors who crossed the music classes and fit serenely with the band’s strange comical inclination.

Jann Arden, Jim Cuddy and Nunavut band The Jerry Cans moved close by individuals from the Northern Touch All-Stars as they all played out a chime in to “On the off chance that I Had $1,000,000,” which completed with inflatables and counterfeit million-dollar bank notes tumbling from the rafters.

Page at that point pulled from one of the melody’s most popular lines about Kraft Dinner to suggest a conversation starter that is waited for a considerable length of time:

“Go ahead, 30 years now, Kraft. Is it safe to say that it isn’t the ideal opportunity for a sponsorship?
