We're stoked to be able to tell you about three remarkable performances at the 26th Annual Gemini Awards, airing on September 7, at 8pm (8:30 NT).


The one-hour live gala will include performances by:


- Jim Cuddy, Blue Rodeo front man and celebrated music icon releasing his 3rd solo album this month.

- City and Colour, alias of Juno Award winning singer-songwriter Dallas Green.

- Deborah Cox, multi-platinum artist and judge of CBC's Cover Me Canada who will join forces with rising star Kellylee Evans, who is fresh off a 2011 Juno Award win from her latest jazz album, Nina.


Fan favourite Jim Cuddy has been a constant keystone for Canada's music industry, with a career spanning over two decades. Debuting at the Geminis, Jim will perform a new song from his 3rd solo album, Skyscraper Soul, set for release on September 27, 2011.


Under the moniker City and Colour, Dallas Green has been captivating live audiences worldwide with his signature soothing sound and his exceptional song writing talent. Dallas will showcase his upcoming second single from his latest album Little Hell which debuted at #1 on the Top 200 Soundscan.


Deborah Cox and Kellylee Evans will unite for a unique and engaging performance blending Deborah's sensational pop/R&B sound and Kellylee's eclectic style of jazz and 'soul-influenced pop'. This exciting number will be complemented by the sultry moves of dancers from CTV's So You Think You Can Dance Canada, and choreographed by one of the show's guest judges and leading choreographers, Melissa Williams.
