MuchMusic lets fans take over The 2010 Juno Awards in one-hour special

MuchMusic has fans covered for all things music as VJs Sarah Taylor, Jesse Giddings, and Liz Trinnear head to Newfoundland and Labrador this weekend for THE 2010 JUNO AWARDS.

Much’s live weekend coverage culminates Sunday night when fans hijack the JUNOS red carpet in the one-hour, commercial-free special FANS TAKE OVER THE JUNOS at 7 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. NT on MuchMusic and MuchMore and immediately preceding CTV’s broadcast of THE 2010 JUNO AWARDS at 8 p.m. ET. VJ Sarah Taylor hosts, but it’s the fans who are interviewing the biggest stars and artists from across the country. Leading up the star-studded Awards show, viewers won’t miss a beat with Much’s live hits from around St. John’s from Friday, April 16, through Sunday, April 18.

MuchMusic brings fans all the action from Saturday’s JUNO Fan Fare, a free event for fans in St. John’s to meet some of Canada’s biggest music stars, take photos, win prizes and get autographs. Hosted by VJs Sarah Taylor and Jesse Giddings, Much goes live with hits covering everything from interviews inside Fan Fare with artists like Alexisonfire, Arkells, Classified, Down With Webster, Stereos and The Trews, to catching up with music- lovers in the crowd. It’s one Saturday afternoon fans won’t want to miss.

But the party doesn’t stop there. That night, MuchMusic gives fans an all-access pass as the only camera inside the Redbull Heavy on The Right Coast party, hosted by rap superstar Drake. Capturing Canada’s leading DJs on stage and Canada’s fastest-rising hip-hop artist Drake at the legendary Majestic Theatre in St. John’s, it’s a party only Much can deliver. Catch the behind-the-scenes footage with Drake during Much’s live hits on Sunday, April 18 beginning at 12 p.m. ET/1:30 p.m. NT.

On Sunday, MuchMusic gets red carpet ready on JUNO day with live hits from the carpet beginning at 12 p.m. ET/1:30 p.m. NT. Much VJs also give away passes to the MuchMusic Red Carpet party before the official JUNO Red Carpet begins. Fans can visit muchmusic.com for more details.
