The 2015 Juno Awards will air nationwide on the CTV network from Hamilton, Ontario. Last year's Junos saw Justin Bieber booed when the Canadian pop singer's name was called, even as he won the Juno Fan Choice Award. Robin Thicke also stirred controversy when he canceled his performance at the 2014 Juno Awards to rest his vocal chords.
