Canadian singer Justin Bieber will perform as part of the Juno Awards broadcast on CBC on Sunday, June 6, the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) announced today.

The "Peaches" singer is also nominated for five Juno awards this year, including Juno fan choice, single of the year, album of the year, artist of the year and pop album of the year.

In total, the Stratford, Ont., native has been nominated for 27 Junos and won seven times since his debut EP was released in 2009. 

This will mark Bieber's first Juno Awards performance since he sang "Baby" at the 2010 Junos in St. John's, N.L. 

Bieber, who's 27, has recently broken decades-old records with his Juno-nominated album, Justice, released on March 19. Justice is Bieber's eighth album to reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, making him the the youngest solo musician ever to reach that milestone. According to Billboard, the record had belonged to Elvis Presley, who was 29 when Roustabout reached No. 1 in 1965.

He also became the first solo male musician to simultaneously hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. He topped the latter with "Peaches," performed with Daniel Caesar and Giveon. In its first week, the single amassed more than 100 million global streams on Spotify and Apple Music. "Peaches" is Bieber's seventh No. 1 song on the Hot 100.

Bieber has sold more than 70 million albums worldwide, and is the No. 1 artist on YouTube with more than 63 million subscribers.

Tune in to the 50th annual Juno Awards live on June 6 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBC TV, CBC Gem, CBC Radio One, CBC Music, CBC Listen, globally on cbcmusic.ca/junos and live streamed on CBC Music's TikTok, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter pages.
