Alessia Cara Leads 2020 Juno Awards With 6 Nominations

The 'Scars to Your Beautiful' singer has also been unraveled as the host of the 49th annual Canada's Grammys at the nominations ceremony where she scores nods including Artist of the Year.

AceShowbiz - Juno Awards host Alessia Cara looks set to be the 2020 prizegiving's big winner after leading all nominees with six mentions.

The Canadian singer/songwriter was announced as the host of the 49th annual Juno Awards - Canada's Grammys - on 15 March at the nominations ceremony on Tuesday morning (January 28), just before she was showered with nods for Fan Choice, Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, Pop Album of the Year, and Songwriter of the Year.

Cara, who is a two-time Juno winner, admits she's thrilled to host the ceremony at the SaskTel Centre, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

"For those of you who are hoping it was someone else, like Shawn Mendes, I'm sorry. It is me. You're stuck with me," she laughed.

"This is really, really exciting. I'm so excited to be a part of Canada's biggest night in music in this way. This is the first time I've been the sole host of anything, so I hope I don't disappoint... Thank you to everyone who decided that I can do this. I'm very, very honoured."

Cara will also perform at the ceremony, alongside Jann Arden, Tory Lanez, The Glorious Sons, Daniel Caesar, and Lennon Stella.
