Canadian chart-topper Nelly Furtado has agreed to host this year's Juno Awards.
The singer is said will be taking a break in the middle of her eight-city Canadian tour to pilot the music-awards ceremony, which will take place April 1st in Saskatoon and broadcast on CTV.
"The Juno Awards are part of the Canadian fabric and to be asked to host is a privilege I'm charmed to accept," Nelly told "ETalk" in an interview. "Hosting the Juno awards is a dream come true and I look forward to carrying on this rich Canadian tradition. See you in Saskatoon!"
