The Weeknd accepts the Male Artist of the Year onstage at the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards at The Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, which was broadcast live on FOX on May 27, 2021.

The Junos welcomed performances from Justin Bieber, Jessie Reyez, JP Saxe and Julia Michaels to its stage in 2021.  

The 2022 Juno Awards are set to take place on May 15, 2022, with a live broadcast from Budweiser Stage in Toronto.  

For the 2022 event, three additional categories will be added to the lineup to reflect the diversifying Canadian music scene. Rap recording of the year will be divided into rap album/EP of the year and rap single of the year. Indigenous artist or group of the year will be split into contemporary Indigenous artist or group of the year and traditional Indigenous artist or group of the year. Lastly, within the dance genre, underground dance recording of the year will be added.   

The awards show aims to recognize the year's best music by Canadian artists.

The Weeknd was the big winner at the 2021 awards show, taking home five awards -- artist of the year, single of the year for “Blinding Lights,” and songwriter of the year, and both album of the year and contemporary R&B recording of the year for After Hours. It marked the second time the superstar had swept the awards for artist, album, and songwriter of the year. He is the only artist to achieve that sweep twice. 

The Junos will open submissions for the 2022 ceremony on Oct. 4, with voting to take place from Dec. 3 to Dec. 16. Nominations are expected to be announced on March 1, 2022.
